The Volkswagen ID. Buzz long wheel base has been showcased ahead of its expected launch later this year.
The new, longer model has three rows of seats, an upgraded electric motor with more power and a larger battery.
The Volkswagen ID. Buzz long wheel base is 250mm longer than the regular model, providing almost 2.5 cubic metres of interior storage space.
There will also be a Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo long wheel base, expanding on the 3.9 cubic metres of load space offered by the ID Buzz Cargo.
The Volkswagen ID Buzz long wheel base will be powered by the firm’s new 286PS electric motor, which gives a 0-62mph acceleration time of less than 8.0 seconds.
It will be joined by a GTX variant, with a twin-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain that develops 339PS.
A new 85kWh battery will be offered, alongside the existing 77kWh unit.
Volkswagen has not revealed the range figures for the new model yet, but has confirmed a new heat pump will be used that boosts efficiencies in colder climates.
Other new features of the large electric Volkswagen van include a head-up display, an upgraded next-generation infotainment system, and remote parking via smartphone.
