World premiere of the ID Buzz on 9 March

The world premiere of the electric VW ID Buzz is scheduled for 9th March 2022. Volkswagen boss Herbert Diess announced on Twitter: "The legend returns on 03/09/22!". The VW brand boss Ralf Brandstätter reconfirmed this announcement on the platform LinkedIn: "The electric new edition of the VW Bulli is coming in spring 2022." The German sales launch is planned for the middle of the year, with additional European countries to follow; however information on pricing and equipment are not yet known.

The VW community can only speculate at this point when it comes to the drive and range of the vehicle; it is assumed that the ID Buzz, which is based on the MEB platform, will have a larger battery than VW's previous e-cars. A 111 kWh battery could be possible instead of the current maximum of 77 kWh, which would allow ranges of up to 600 kilometres conceivable. VW has also announced an electric ID California for 2025.
