VW To Detail I.D. Buzz Production This Weekend

Volkswagen is expected to announce its intent to bring the I.D. Buzz microbus concept to production in 2022 at this weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Autonews Europe claims to have received word from an unnamed company source that VW chief executive Herbet Diess and the head of VW’s light commercial vehicle business Eckhard Scholz, will make the announcement. It is thought that the announcement will include information about how the two vehicle arms of Volkswagen will split the development work.

As we learnt at the I.D. Buzz Concept’s premiere at the Detroit Auto Show, it is underpinned by the same MEB platform as the I.D. hatchback and I.D. Crozz SUV.

While it’s been obvious from the get-go that both the hatchback and SUV would reach production, questions have lingered about the Buzz. After all, it is a very niche vehicle and will never be sold in large numbers.

Diess boldly told the world in June that the all-electric microbus will see the light of day but failed to specify any details.

    This is the only minivan I would ever own. I’m just hoping it has AWD available for our Colorado winters.

    That is GREAT looking…I’d be seriously interested. Nice to see a little subtlety in styling, considering the horrors served up by Honda and Toyota/Lexus.

    I really do not see this being a niche vehicle, it seems lile a very practicle people /stuff mover! VW could have a real winner on it’s hands of it doesn’t dull down the design or get beaten to the market by a competitor. 5 years is a long time in the automotive world. They should make it in 3.

    They have been talking about it since the past decade… And it won’t even be in the market until the next…
