Volkswagen's Mini Bus Is Coming Back And It's All Electric

By Tessa Love

Good news for all you nostalgia buffs: The iconic VW minibus is back, and this time it's going to be devoid of the noxious fumes that come with the originals. That's right – the new minibus is going electric

Called the I.D. BUZZ, the new VW will be an eco-friendly four-door van with a range of 270 miles, 369 horsepower from an all-electric drivetrain, and a 111 kWh battery pack can reach 80 percent charge in 30 minutes. The only downside is you'll have to wait a bit: the BUZZ won't hit showrooms until 2022.

Volkswagon announced their new project at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in Monterey, California last week, a decision the company made as a nod to the role California played in creating the culture that made the minibus an icon.
