Concept vehicle based on the Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) offers comfort and lots of space for long journeysGeneva – The I.D. Buzz concept car from Volkswagen celebrates its European debut at the Geneva International Motor Show (9 to 19 March). The new electric MPV is the second model in the I.D. range and provides a look ahead to the future. In particular, it shows that the Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) is well suited to larger vehicles as well: batteries and the drive system are housed within the floor, above which driver and passengers find lots of space for traveling in comfort.
The Geneva International Motor Show is actually the third outing for the I.D. Buzz. Following its world debut at the start of January in Detroit, it had a rendezvous with the T1 for a photo-shoot in Miami, Florida. Even though there are seven decades between Volkswagen's oldest and newest MPV, the I.D. Buzz undoubtedly has its predecessor's genes: maximum utilization of space on the footprint of a medium-size passenger car. On top of that comes multi-variable seating and interactive connectivity. Thanks to the extended MEB XL platform, this 194.6-inch long, 77.7-inch wide and 77.3-inch high concept vehicle provides an extraordinary amount of interior space for its class.
