The Electric Volkswagen Kombi Van: VW ID. Buzz

VW Electric Kombi Van

Thanks to Volkswagen, the VW ID. Buzz Electric Kombi van is on the way, and eco-minded drivers looking for something special will be head over heels. The iconic VW Microbus from the '60s & '70s captured the imagination of free spirits across the globe. Wherever there was a beach, good times, guitars, and campfires, you were sure to see a bus as the backdrop. The original version disappeared but now emerges as the demand for a "different" type of vehicle takes center stage. This page will tell you more about the forthcoming models' inspiration, but we'll also tell you about what you can expect when driving this electrified hippy van.

Life With the Volkswagen ID. Buzz

First things first. Take the idea of an excellent emission-free vehicle to the next level. So many of our customers ask us how life will be different with an EV. Are there special needs and considerations? What about range? How much does it cost to charge an EV? In our neck of the woods, 93% of the public charging stations are available for use without cost. Think about that for a second. Imagine cruising around and never having to pay for "filling-up." This is just one of the main benefits of jumping into your new EV lifestyle.

The national network of charging stations is growing fast to accommodate public demand. So wherever you are, do an internet search for the chargers in your area that you can use without any additional charges (pun intended). Currently, the Volkswagen ID.4 offers a complimentary charging plan from Electrify America for three full years (this covers you at their locations if complementary charging isn't available). We are expecting to see a similar promotion with the VW ID. Buzz Electric Kombi van.

European-spec editions all come with standard wireless charging, a 10-inch infotainment center with smartphone connectivity, gesture recognition controls, multi-colored ambient lighting, factory navigation, heated seats, tons of charge ports, and endless colors to may your hippie van interior as far out or square as you desire.

If you're looking for an eco-friendly camper van, then the North American-spec model is worth waiting for. Sources state that our version will have a third row with mid-row benches that can be removed, slid, turned, and even folded flat for sleeping.

A dual-motor version is promised, and it's been stated that our version will have a larger battery pack. The European version sees an astonishing 350 miles on a single charge, according to WLTP testing.1 We’ll post the results from the EPA as soon as their testing is complete.
