The automaker has been teasing us for the past few years with an electric-minivan concept that somewhat resembles the original Beetle-based version. The latest spy shots show prototypes of the ID Buzz that, although disguised, appear similar to the original prototype. In Europe, the ID Buzz will be available in regular- and extended-wheelbase passenger and cargo vans. For North America, only the passenger-van version with the longer wheelbase will likely be available. Both rear- and all-wheel-drive models will be available with output maxing at 302 horsepower and range peaking at 300 miles. The ID Buzz is expected to arrive in 2023 as a 2024 model.

Indications are the production Volkswagen ID Buzz electric van will stay fairly true to the concept, pictured. PHOTO: VOLKSWAGEN
