For Los Angeles, the concept of I. D. Buzz Cargo turns into a support vehicle for the I. D. R race.
For the salon Los Angeles, Volkswagen presents the Cargo version of its electric concept I. D. Buzz, that we had been able to discover at the Hanover fair last September.
Volkswagen had already introduced a modern version and electrified his mythical Combi at the Detroit motor show 2017, with the concept of I. D. Buzz. Last September, it was a variant with more ” pro “, which was unveiled for the living room of the utility vehicle in Hanover. Today, at the salon of Los Angeles in 2018, the German brand is changing this Combi utility futuristic and present the I. D. Buzz Cargo, in the form of a support vehicle for the I. D. R, which has beaten this year the absolute record on the climb of Pikes Peak.
Unlike the first concept I. D. Buzz that had an all-wheel drive thanks to its two engines, and developed a power output of 374 hp, the Cargo is closer to the standard of utility vehicles with an engine delivering 201 horsepower on only the rear wheels. Depending on the size of the battery, whose capacity can vary between
48 kWh, 111 kWh, the autonomy of the I. D. Buzz Cargo is between 320 and 540 km, depending on the cycle WLTP.
The interior here seems optimized for the artisans, which may then store various tools or supplies against the inner walls of the back part. Besides, the I. D. Buzz Cargo is equipped with a 230V socket, which allows connection of power tools and benefit from the energy available from the battery of the vehicle. As a reminder, it is possible to load 800 kg in this utility, which offers space rather generous, with its 5,05 m long.
Volkswagen conjures up a potential series production for the year 2022, either to the I. D. Buzz with the family or the Cargo utility.
