Kombi The new Volkswagen Kombi will be delayed until 2023.
Known as I.D. Buzz, Volkswagen’s future electric van was scheduled to be launched next year in Europe and later in the United States. Scott Keogh, Volkswagen’s CEO for the Americas, confirmed the postponement.
According to European media speculation, the Volkswagen factory in Hannover (Germany) needs to undergo adjustments in the production line to be able to assemble the model that was worldwide entitled “Electric van”.
New Kombi will go global
The I.D. Buzz was presented globally in 2019 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Built on Volkswagen’s new electric modular architecture, known as “MEB”, the van has not yet had fully confirmed technical figures, but the concept revealed at the event had two electric motors, one on each axis, which together produced 374 hp, with a range of 600 km.
In the production version, the new electric Kombi can adopt a more realistic configuration, similar to the current vehicles I.D. (I.D. 3 and I.D.4), with smaller battery options and prices that start in the range of 50 thousand euros.
The I.D. Buzz will be a classic MPV (an acronym for “Multi-Purpose Vehicle”) with a vintage design. The promise was for six passenger seats and also for van configurations.
