I.D. Concept Wins 2017 Concept Truck of The Year Award, Goes Into Production by 2022
Volkswagen introduced the I.D. Buzz Concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this past January. This concept re-imagined the old Microbus as an electric vehicle designed for families on the go.
The good news is that the I.D. Buzz concept has earned a very important award that will embolden this vehicle’s future. At the 16th Annual North American Concept of The Year Awards, Volkswagen received the 2017 Concept Truck of The Year at a ceremony held at the Concours d’Elegance of America in St. Ann, Michigan. It is the fourth such award for this Volkswagen concept vehicle.
The concept is built on the upcoming Modular Electric Drive Matrix platform, where it is designed to be produced in various forms of vehicles. This is the third I.D. concept to exhibit what the new platform is capable of. For this vehicle, the concept would be crafted into an electric vehicle with a possible maximum battery range of 270 miles. The I.D. Buzz itself would be design to combine the past and the future while meeting the needs of families. The concept could be built out to accommodate up to 162.5 cubic feet of cargo space.
As far as the future is concerned, Volkswagen announced that the I.D. Buzz will go into production by the year 2022. It will be a part of an electrified family of new Volkswagen models on the Modular Electric Drive Matrix platform. Expect these vehicles – including the production version of the I.D. Buzz – appealing to various consumers – including you!
Volkswagen of Van Nuys has seen the future. It will include the e-Golf and the new swath of vehicles coming from the I.D. concept family. In five years, expect to visit us for your next electric vehicle.
