VW Confirms Electric Kombi! | 22 Aug 2017
Volkswagen is ready to join the electric car revolution — and it's doing so with a buzzy refresh of one of its most classic vehicles. Volkswagen CEO Dr. Herbert Diess acknowledged the concept's popularity while outlining the plan to bring the Buzz to North American, European, and Chinese markets. He said VW was flooded with letters and emails from excited customers, imploring the company to "please build this car" — so that's exactly what VW is going to do.
The production model all-wheel drive Buzz will offer drivers more than just a blast from the past. The next-gen Microbus will boast 369 hp from electric motors on each of its axles for extra handling ability. Most importantly, the Buzz is slated for up to 480 km (300 miles) of range per charge, with the capability to power up to about 80 per cent of its energy capacity in 30 minutes using VW's fast-charging system.
