According to Volkswagen, the decision to create the announcement at pebble Beach was in honor of the vital role California has played within the history of the microbus and to the contributions of the VW van to the state’s carculture.

 I wished Dr Diess realized that Lagos in Nigeria is the home of all Volkswagen mini buses. In Lagos, Nigeria, the older mini buses is popularly called ‘Danfo Bus”. The buses is part of the lifestyle in the city for the past 3 decades. The danfo buses is the face of Lagos , sadly the state government have recently announced that it will be facing it out soon.  I do believe that for a state government that is looking to make the city a mega modern city, adopting the new  Volks wagen will be the right decision.


The I.D. BUZZ created its world debut at the 2017 Detroit automobile Show. the electric four-door van is expected to reach showrooms in 2022 and its targeted towards the United States, Chinese, and European markets.

Volkswagen hasn’t offered its imported Transporter van to United States buyers in roughly 15 years and it hasn’t had a van at all within the United States market since it dropped the Routan in 2014. ( The Routan was a rebadged fifth-generation Dodge Caravan.)

VW has not released technical specs for the production van. However, the concept car features a range of 270 miles, 369 H.P. from its all-electric drivetrain, and a 111 kWh battery pack will reach 80th charge in half-hour. The I.D. BUZZ-based microbus will be built on VW Group’s new MEB electric vehicle platform.
