The ID Buzz comes in a range of bright colour options


In terms of design, The ID Buzz blends the classic proportions of the microbus with more modern design touches. The electric van’s connected headlamps, covered rims, and black accenting on the windows and mirrors make it look classy and futuristic. But leaving all that aside, some elements such as the dual-tone paint scheme, boxy silhouette and body lines evidently pay homage to the microbus.

The cabin of the electric van retains the same neo-retro design with the dashboard merging modern tech with vintage colour schemes and design elements. The vehicle gets a Heads up Display, along with a new infotainment system that is now larger in size. Among other features is a newly developed panoramic sunroof that the company says is the largest glass it ever made. The sunroof features a touch slider that can be used to change the glass from transparent to opaque and vice versa.
