2022 Düsseldorf Motorhome Show: Volkswagen ID.Buzz mini electric camper unveiled
The ID. Buzz camper’s interior dimensions are also quite surprising while clinging to the short-axle five-seater version. Similar to the Ququq’s design, the car has a tailgate box attached to the bed frame and can be folded down on the bench.
Both the frame and the three-piece foam mattress can be easily folded in one go, providing a 49×77×4 in (125×195×10 cm) bunk for travelers if needed.
The ID-Box provides a pull plate under the tailgate that doubles as a worktop. The 99 lb (45 kg) slide-out side cupboard accommodates twogasStove + wind deflector.
There is a good storage space under the kitchen slide, and the middle compartment can be used for installationrefrigerator. Next to it is a simple sink with two 10-liter tanks, interchangeable taps, and two stainless steel sink basins.
Ququq says the ID-Box is ready for production, although final specifications and pricing have yet to be finalized. I believe that when Volkswagen officially launches ID. Buzz, consumers in the United States will also be able to get official options.
In terms of battery life, the van version of the ID. Buzz is expected to reach 263 miles (WLTP / about 423 kilometers) – far ahead of the Ford E-Transit (197 miles / 317 kilometers) and Mercedes EQV (226 miles / 363 kilometers) .
In addition, this electric van is only 185 inches (4.71 meters) long, which is more compact than the Volkswagen Transporter T6.1 short-axle version (a difference of about 8 inches / 20 cm). If you only need to camp around the city, the ID-Box is quite flexible.
Notably, Hobby has also teamed up with materials specialist Vöhringer GmbH to develop the Beachy Air lightweight monocoque structure and Knott for the ultra-light chassis.
The trailer can also provide a payload of 551 lbs (250 kg) while reaching a gross weight of 1653 lbs (750 kg).
Hobby describes the Beachy Air as a vision for the future of camping, but they haven’t announced when it will move to full-scale production.
It is reported that Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles started production in June and is scheduled to start deliveries in the fall of 2022.
Finally, the ID. Buzz starts at 64,581 euros (including VAT / about 443,500 RMB) in the German market.
