    It's certainly a modern twist on the original design. It’s 100% electric and will be available to buy in 2022. Its full name is the ID Buzz.

    It’s part of the company's wider plan to release 30 electric vehicles by 2025. The Buzz will have a range of 300 miles and it will charge to 80% in 30 minutes. Not bad at all. Take a look at City AM’s report here.

    Does it capture the original essence in your view? Do you have a camper van? Where do you take it? Let’s share some holiday ideas.

  • Ohh! I love the design of ID Buzz @Toby, I am such a fan of Volkswagen's cars! I remember going on family vacation with my dad's old beetle back in Brazil, and than later we had a Kombi Van to fit everyone it!

    I will share the news with him, I am sure he will love it as much as I do!

  • I don't dislike it, but I don't think it quite has the iconic charm of the original in the way that the new fiat 500 and the mini to a lesser extent did manage to capture the charm of their predecessors.
    Perhaps it needs a more retro colour scheme?

  • I think it looks awesome. Totally fits into the sleek & clean Star Trek future I hope we’ll get, as opposed to the horrendous Blade Runner one I fear we’re falling into.

    In related (sort of) news, I only recently saw Bladerunner 2049 the other day.
    Wow! Stunning film. Scary vision of the future, too.
    Seen it @woz ? I think you'd like it

  • @Toby, it does look "cool", especially those wheels

    Have they put batteries into every free spare space like under seats / cupboards etc?
