While Spain and other European markets are already a few reserves away from running out of the first production, in the United States, Mexico and other key regions of South America such as Brazil, they await the arrival of the ID.Buzz, the new electric model inspired by the classic Kombiwagen. What dates does the German brand have in mind for its expansion. Read it below.
Volkswagen is heading to exhaust its first stock of its new ID.Buzz. Model 2023, of this minivan revival of the legendary Combi Type 2, two thirds of the 15,000 units that the German giant launched on the European market for the remainder of 2022 have already been reserved. On the other side of the Atlantic, meanwhile, they await news about its inevitable arrival.
Inevitable, although at the moment not even remotely a specific date. From the Mexican subsidiary Volkswagen does not give too many clues about it, although they consider its arrival as a matter of time and the second half of 2023, once its first year in Europe has passed, appears as the key time for it to cross the continent.
We are working hard so that both this emblematic electric van and other electric models reach Mexico.
“We are working hard so that both this emblematic electric van and other electric models reach Mexico,” they communicate from VW Mexico. Beyond the null certainty, both the ID.Buzz of 61,775 euros and the utility Cargo today at a value of 56,145 euros would expand to the United States market already as model 2024 to later expand its commercialization to Aztec lands.
This has been communicated by Carsten Intra, head of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles USA, when the range had not yet been presented in March 2022. This and that in the United States only the five-seater version for passengers would be sold due to 25 percent of tariff rates that this type of vehicle must pay to enter the country.
South America also remains expectant. Rock in Rio 2022 is celebrated in September and there, at the avant premiere, Volkswagen Brazil will exhibit both variants of the ID.Buzz to assess its impact among an audience with a history for the classic Kombiwagen. To be attentive and, of course, to see what happens in Rio de Janeiro and its “biggest festival in the world”.
