  • The U.S. version of the VW ID.Buzz electric van will debut in June, Volksawagen has confirmed.

  • It will have a long-wheelbase configuration and seven seats as standard.

  • We expect it to arrive for the 2024 model year, meaning it could go on sale late this year or early next year.

VW's Microbus revival, the electric ID.Buzz van, is already on sale in Europe, and now we're finally getting some updates on the U.S. version and when it will arrive on our shores. Volkswagen has confirmed that the long-wheelbase version of the Buzz will make its debut in June before going on sale in America for the 2024 model year. Our spy photographers have also spotted a prototype of the LWB van testing in wintry conditions, giving us our first look at this different configuration.

The difference between the short-wheelbase European model and the long-wheelbase U.S. model is most obvious if you look at the length of the rear sliding doors. Otherwise, the two look nearly identical on the outside. The U.S. version will come standard with three rows of seats and should offer seating for seven passengers, while the Euro version has two rows of seats. We expect some other interior trim differences, although we're hoping that the fun interior color options make their way to our market.


VW has also told us that the bigger U.S.-bound Buzz will have a larger battery pack than the 77.0-kWh pack available elsewhere. The base model will have a single rear-mounted electric motor producing 201 horsepower, and a dual-motor all-wheel-drive upgrade will be optional and should offer the same 295 hp as the AWD option in the ID.4 SUV.
