The top model, the Edition 1, costs around R$406,000 (£62,995). Among the differences are larger wheels and an entertainment system with a 12-inch screen.

Initially, only the electric motor will be offered in the initial versions, capable of producing 201 hp. More powerful dual-engine, all-wheel-drive models are expected to be added to the lineup in 2023.

The ID Buzz is 4712mm long, 1980mm wide and 1938mm tall. Apart from the traditional five-seater model, Volkswagen plans to introduce a seven-seater variant next year as well.

The electric vehicle will also have OTA (over-the-air) software update functionality, allowing Volkswagen to update various vehicle functions as they are developed, without the need to take the vehicle to a Volkswagen dealer.

The new model includes a number of driver assistance systems, including hazard alerts and Cruise Assist, an automatic lane change feature.

A 77 kWh battery will be standard to power the electric motor mounted on the rear axle. At the moment, Volkswagen has not yet released official performance numbers, what is known is that there will be three different driving modes: Eco, Comfort and Sport.

The car will be able to be charged using household electricity (up to 22kW on the AC system and up to 170kW on the DC system) and also supports two-way charging, allowing the owner to use the car to power other electricity. According to Volkswagen, the estimated range per charge is around 400 km.

A more powerful version, the GTX, with two engines, all-wheel drive and 295 hp is also in the manufacturer’s plans.

Produced in Hanover, Germany, it is the latest version of the automaker’s 100% electric model, the Volkswagen ID. The EV debuted five years ago at the Detroit Auto Show.
