The continuous expansion of the portfolio clearly shows that VW is serious about its electric cars. In a few weeks, the electrified version of a classic will celebrate its premiere: the E-Bulli is finally here.
VW presents electric Bulli: On March 9th the time has come
The electric Bulli was the first thing you heard from the VW Group on the subject of electric cars. In the meantime, three independent electric models from the ID series have already appeared and have given Volkswagen a good start in e-mobility. Years later, it should soon be ready: VW wants its so far in March present the electric Bulli known under the title ID.Buzz.
At least that is what emerges from a post by CEO Diess, which is not entirely clear, but is practically unmistakable:
„The Legend returns on March 9, 2022‘ the VW boss recently tweeted, followed by a sketch of the ID buzz. The American date format is confusing from a German point of view, but earlier reports already announced the start for spring 2022.
Concepts and render photos of the ID-Buzz have been around for some time, and there are always minor updates. It can be considered certain that the E-Bulli equipped with a powerful battery will. Size, weight and the typical, but not exactly streamlined body make a strong battery a must. Otherwise you could probably not call up a significant range.
VW’s electric Bulli: electric car with the most powerful engine?
The ID-Buzz could become VW’s most powerful electric model to date: So far there has been talk of a 111 kWh battery, the one Range up to 600 km should ideally enable (source: Insideevs). The e-Bulli is also based on the adaptable MEB platform, just like the previous e-cars from the VW Group.
As early as 2017, VW showed the electric Bulli:
So we can assume a powerful electric motor and a large battery, but there is still complete ambiguity in other respects: The name ID-Buzz is considered unlikely. What VW will call its electric Bulli remains unclear. The same applies to the price. We will certainly know more after the performance on March 9th. VW is also said to be working on an autonomous variant of the electric bus.
