An integrated approach to electric mobility: innovative mobility with the ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo

For truly sustainable mobility, the entire life cycle of a vehicle has to be taken into account and CO2 emissions reduced at every stage. Switch to electromobility now – with the innovative, networked ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo.

  • 360° electric mobility

    We take responsibility for our part of the value chain of our vehicles and are committed to the Paris Climate Agreement – with the aim of becoming a carbon-neutral5 company by 2050. The ID. Buzz is the first Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles model to be developed from scratch as an electric vehicle. It will be a fundamental building block in our integrated 360° ecosystem for electric mobility. That’s because we can only achieve our goals if we take an integrated approach to acting sustainably.

  • Integrated charging solutions

    The ID. Buzz is not just a climate-conscious way to drive, but also more flexible. That’s because an electric vehicle should have an individual, sustainable ecosystem that adapts to your mobility. You previously had to drive to a filling station, but now you charge the ID. Buzz when you’re not using it anyway. This might be at the charging point at work, at a public charging station on the motorway, in front of the supermarket, in a car park, where your friends live or at your own personal home charging point. The maximum power for quick charging (DC) is up to 170 kW and it takes around 30 minutes to charge the battery from 5% to 80%. The Plug & Charge5 function makes charging easier: authentication, charging and billing take place automatically once you plug in the charging cable. The maximum charging power for regular charging (AC) is 11 kW. Simply use the We Charge service to find available charging stations on the road.

  • Powerful electric drive

    Zero local CO2 emissions and a long electric range are crucial if an electric drive is to be practical for everyday use. With the ID. Buzz we have to meet the needs of many different people, from private customers to tradespeople. The innovative electric drive in the ID. Buzz makes this possible. The e-motor is accommodated in the rear in a particularly space-saving way and makes towing loads of up to 1,000 kg possible without any problems. Sustainable, suitable for everyday use and robust: the electric drive of the ID. Buzz combines climate awareness with individual mobility.
