What Car? says...
Retro cars done right can be huge hit, and the latest model to play the nostalgia card is the Volkswagen ID Buzz. It harks back to the loveable looks of the VW Type 2, especially with a two-tone paint job.
An awful lot has changed since the original VW Bus first put-putted its way into the hearts of millions in the Forties, though – and not just in terms of people’s changing tastes in fashion and music. Today’s ID Buzz follows the wave of popular interest in electric cars because all versions (there’s also a commercial VW Buzz Cargo model) run on a near-silent motor powered by a sizeable battery pack.
We've driven the VW ID Buzz, and in this review we’ll let you know how long that charging session will take, what its performance is like, how practical it is, which trim level is the best and more.
We'll also rank it against other electric MPVs you might be considering, from the smaller Citroën e-Berlingo, Peugeot e-Rifter and Vauxhall Combo-e Life to the larger Citroën e-SpaceTourer, Peugeot e-Traveller and Mercedes EQV.
