    Spied! It's the ID.Buzz passenger van with no camouflage! | Driving

    It's likely a full body prototype. Minor changes might happen, but I would think those are likely to happen to meet different market requirements. A cargo van version will also be available.

    A few details, "As previously reported, the automaker confirmed battery capacities of 48 kWh through 111 kWh. Single-motor versions will make 201 horsepower at the rear wheels, and the top speed will be limited to 160 km/h. The driving range is estimated to be around 340 miles (547 km) on the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure. Volkswagen is also developing a dual-motor option for better traction, likely packing all-wheel-drive and more power."

    The Buzz is planned for model year 2023 in Europe, and 2024 in the US. Final specs and details should be coming out next year.

    Nice find! Too bad it's not more retro looking. It would seem that might have a lower drag coefficient.

    Crash regulations might also have been a consideration.
