Volkswagen has unveiled a prototype of its long-awaited ID. Buzz van in Paris.
The ID. Buzz is an electric reincarnation of Volkswagen’s Microbus or Kombi.
The ID. Buzz is due to go on sale in a number of European countries in the third quarter of 2022, Reuters reports.
The van will also launch in the United States in late 2023.
The ID. Buzz is the first in a series of prototypes released in the past decade to successfully make it to production stage, Reuters quotes Volkswagen.
The Hanover-made ID. Buzz runs on an 82 kWh lithium-ion battery and can reach a maximum speed of 90 miles an hour, Volkswagen said.
Other versions with batteries offering different power outputs will follow next year, the company said.
