In February, we acquired spy pictures of a virtually bare long-wheelbase 2024 Volkswagen ID. Buzz, the trim we’ll get in North America. Now we’ve two causes to mark June 2 on our calendars. The primary is that VW will reveal the lengthier buzz in Huntington Seashore, California throughout from the Hyatt Regency Huntington Seashore on the Pacific Coast Freeway. That is becoming since SoCal not solely helped create the mythos of the Volkswagen Kind 2 or Kombi or Bulli or Bus or what have you ever, it does virtually as a lot yearly to maintain the Bus present due to festivals and random surfers parked up on the PCH. The second cause for notating June 2 is that a company known as Nationwide Day Calendar has made June 2 Worldwide Volkswagen Bus Day.
Beginning with the automobile stuff, the Euro-spec ID. Buzz we drove earlier this yr measures 185.5 inches lengthy on a 117.6-inch wheelbase — roughly 18 inches shorter than the present Toyota Sienna. America’s long-wheelbase, three-row ID. Buzz will likely be almost 10 inches (25 cm) longer and provide true seven-passenger seating together with detachable rear seats and pivoting second-row captain’s chairs. These spy pictures confirmed that VW discovered the extra size in the midst of the van, the prototype’s sliding doorways conspicuously longer than these fitted to the European model. This strategy preserves the ID.Buzz’s brief entrance and rear overhangs and, at the least to our eyes, helps mitigate the aesthetic impression of the extra size.
The reveal occasion will welcome media and the general public, so should you’re within the space and wish to witness the second coming of the Kombi, head down. VW says there will likely be stay leisure, different new product and a Busses & Espresso gathering from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you would like to register your Bus for the gathering, get in now — solely 300 will likely be accepted. Digital guests are welcome to hitch in at 11 a.m. EST on both RadioWoodstock.com or YouTube.
