New VW ID.Buzz Will Launch with Three Trim LevelsVolkswagen
  • The 2025 Volkswagen ID.Buzz will launch with two trim levels and a First Edition.

  • The Pro S only has rear-wheel drive and a bench seat to help hold seven people; the Pro S Plus adds a head-up display, Harman Kardon stereo, and available AWD.

  • The First Edition offers RWD or AWD but only comes with a two-tone paint job, the coastal-inspired interior, and a standard electrochromic panoramic sunroof.

It feels like we've been waiting for forever for the new Volkswagen ID.Buzz to drop in the United States. While the exact on-sale date of the electric successor to the iconic Microbus is still TBD, it's slated to finally happen sometime this fall. To whet our appetite, VW today revealed that the 2025 ID.Buzz will debut on our shores with three trim levels.

A Trio of Trims

We've known for awhile that the U.S. version of the ID.Buzz will feature an 86.0-kWh battery that powers either a 282-hp single motor feeding the rear wheels or a 335-hp dual-motor setup providing all-wheel drive. We don't yet know their EPA range estimates, but we do know all models will ride on the same 127.5-inch wheelbase that supports three rows of seats. Now we also know the van's three trim levels and how they'll be configured.

The Pro S will be the entry-level model, and it will only come with the RWD powertrain. Its standard features include 20-inch wheels, ambient interior lighting with 30 selectable colors, a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, and a suite of driver-assistance tech that comes with a self-parking function that has a memory setting that saves the parking procedure for specific spots. The Pro S also has a second-row bench seat that provides space for up to seven people total.


The Pro S Plus can be had with rear- or all-wheel drive, however, the latter requires second-row captain's chairs (reducing passenger capacity to six). The Plus trim adds more desirable features too, including a 360-degree camera system, a head-up display, and a 700-watt Harman Kardon stereo. It also comes with a manually retractable trailer hitch, but we don't yet know how much the ID.Buzz can tow. The available "flexboard"creates a flat floor when the rear seats are folded, and there's an optional electrochromic panoramic sunroof with clear and opaque settings.

The 2025 VW ID.Buzz First Edition will only be available at launch. It's based on the Pro S Plus, meaning it offers both powertrains and the same standard equipment. The First Edition also gets unique 20-inch wheels, exclusive badging, and roof-mounted cross bars. The electrochromic glass comes standard, as do motion-activated sliding doors and tailgate, but a two-tone paint scheme is mandatory. Likewise, every interior must be the Dune option, which combines light gray leatherette upholstery with clay-colored accents and wood-like trim.

Volkswagen says pricing and other specifics will be announced closer to the ID.Buzz's launch date later this year, which can't get here soon enough.
