VW ID.Buzz GTX, a 340 hp electric van, confirmed

The Volkswagen ID.Buzz will also be available in a more powerful and sportier GTX version

One of Volkswagen’s most sought-after electric vehicles is undoubtedly the VW ID.Buzz, the legendary van that marked a whole era and which is returning in this electric era to repeat its previous success.

Looking ahead to 2023, Volkswagen has announced important new developments for the ID.Buzz, indicating that it will later launch new versions of the van in both its passenger and cargo versions.

The Volkswagen ID.Buzz is currently available in Spain in a 5-seater passenger version (more seats will be available in the future) and a commercial version (cargo). In addition to these versions, Volkswagen has confirmed that it will add a very special version to the ID.Buzz, the VW ID.Buzz GTX.

GTX is the acronym Volkswagen uses to identify the sportier and more powerful versions of its 100% electric models, we have already seen it on the ID.5 and ID.4 and now it is the turn of the ID.Buzz van.

What’s new in the VW ID.Buzz GTX compared to the other options?

As we have already told you, the GTX version gives its vehicles more power and sportiness, and the ID.Buzz van is no exception.

Volkswagen will equip the ID.Buzz GTX with two electric motors, offering all-wheel drive and a combined total output of 340 hp. Currently, the version currently on the market only has rear-wheel drive and a power output of 204 hp.

As for the battery size, no major surprises are expected and everything suggests that it will have the same battery as the regular version of the ID.Buzz, i.e. a capacity of 77 kWh, which will reduce its range (due to the increase in power).

In addition to the ID.Buzz GTX, the German brand has confirmed the launch of a new version for this year with a larger size (250 mm more) that will give the option of including up to a total of 7 seats. All-wheel drive versions will also be launched and an ID. California based on the ID.Buzz, although this version is not expected to arrive until 2024 or 2025 at the earliest.
