The VW ID. Buzz gets a lot of attention where ever it goes. That’s because the design of this fully-electric people carrier is striking; with its two-tone paintwork and rounded bug-like features, it looks an awful lot like the original Type 2 VW vans of the 60s. Yet, there’s also something extremely modern about the design.

It’s a design technique that VW executed so successfully with the new Beetle when it launched in 1997 – modern yet still maintaining those classic looks. I was really excited when I saw the original concept for the ID. Buzz, and while the design has been normalised a little from that first prototype, it looks great in real life.

This is not an EV for everyone though. It’s bigger than most SUVs to start with, and it has a rather large price tag to go with it. However, as electric microbuses go, they don’t get cooler than the ID. Buzz. I spent a week behind the wheel to see what it was like to live with.
