2022 volkswagen id buzz cargo electric van prices and specs revealed

The new Volkswagen ID Buzz cargo will cost from £38,125 when sales begin later this year, it has been announced.

The Buzz Cargo is the electric van variant of the upcoming Volkswagen ID Buzz people carrier, which is also scheduled to go on sale later this year.

Powered by a single 201bhp electric motor driving the rear wheels, the Buzz Cargo is fed by a 77kWh battery pack providing a range of up to 256 miles between charges, according to official figures. That’s further than most electric van rivals can manage, including the Maxus e Deliver 3 (151 miles) and the quartet of Stellantis Group electric vans – that’s the Citroen e-Dispatch, Peugeot e-Expert, Toyota Proace Electric and Vauxhall Vivaro-e to most of us.

Buyers can choose from a two or three-seat layout up front, as well as a load-through bulkhead option, which lets you load longer items through the bulkhead and into the front area. Two sliding doors feature on either side of the ID Buzz Cargo to help get your items in and out.

There are only two trim levels to choose from, with entry level Commerce models will come with up to three front seats, including a heated driver’s seat, front and rear parking sensors, a 10in touchscreen infotainment screen with smartphone mirroring, and USB-C ports for charging your devices. Commerce Plus trim adds safety and convenience kit including adaptive cruise control, keyless entry, a rear-view camera and lane-keeping assistance.

Prices start from £38,125 excluding VAT for Commerce versions, with Commerce Plus models costing from £42,375 excluding VAT. Those prices make the ID Buzz Cargo more expensive than most rivals.

We’ve already been for a drive in a late-stage ID Buzz Cargo prototype model, which showed that this all electric van offers plenty of promise, with plenty of space inside and an impressive level of agility for a heavy van.
