The production version, based on Volkswagen’s versatile MEB (Modularen Elektrik Baukasten) electric car platform, shares a similar boxy profile as the previous concept, but is more angular overall. It also receives a slightly set-back windshield for increased crash protection and improved aerodynamic efficiency. Details such as the LED headlights, which come with optional IQ Light functionality with full-beam adaptive dimming, and the full-width LED taillights have also been reworked, giving them a more technical look. The wheels range from 19 inches to 20 inches.
Smaller than the original concept, the standard wheelbase ID Buzz is 4712mm long, 1980mm wide and 1938mm high. This makes it 192mm shorter, 76mm wider and 32mm lower than the equivalent Multivan.
A 2988mm wheelbase is the longest yet for a car based on Volkswagen’s MEB platform, which also underpins the Chinese-market Volkswagen ID 3, ID 4, ID 5 and ID 6. That’s just 12mm shorter than the Multivan’s 3000mm wheelbase, albeit around 217mm longer than the ID 4’s.
Volkswagen has yet to provide dimensions for the long-wheelbase model, although officials suggest it will receive a 250mm longer wheelbase, allowing it to accommodate up to three rows of seats.
Despite a large frontal area, the drag coefficient is remarkably low by utility vehicle standards, with a Cd of 0.28 for the passenger model and 0.29 for the Cargo.
