New VW bus in 2017 concept called I.D Buzz

Volkswagen AG reintroduced its iconic hippe-era micro-bus in a whole new avatar.

Volkswagen showcased a new concept at the Detroit Auto Show this week, offering a glimpse at what it sees for the future: the I.D. Buzz concept.

Dr. Herbert Diess, from Volkswagen, said the company's "big electric offensive" would begin in 2020 and promised a "completely new vehicle architecture". That is when we will be launching an entirely new generation of fully connected, all-electric vehicles to the market. "We are making electric mobility the new trademark of Volkswagen", the German automaker said in a recent statement, prudently distancing itself from the diesel vehicle business where it has scandalous history of cheating emissions tests. Buzz is a play on the word "bus" whereas I.D. stands for anything from "Idea" to "Intelligent Design".

The floor-mounted battery lowers the vehicle's centre of gravity and delivers ideal weight distribution claims Volkswagen. Its 2017 interpretation includes retro design cues such as the two-tone paintjob, blunt front end and large VW badge, but the space age interior, huge 22-inch wheels and wraparound LED lights modernise the design.

The vehicle's 111 kWh battery can be charged to 80% of its capacity within 30 minutes using the Combined Charging System (CCS) or an inductive charging interface, with a charging rate of 150 kW.

Equipped with laser, radar, ultrasonic sensors and cameras, the I.D. Buzz is also world's first fully autonomous multi-purpose vehicle.
