Finally! Details About the 2025 VW ID. Buzz

2025 VW ID Buzz
  • Volkswagen has confirmed three available trims for the ID. Buzz: The Pro S is RWD-only, while Pro S Plus and 1st Edition offer AWD.
  • Single-motor RWD models get 282 hp, while the dual-motor models can pump out 335 hp.
  • We still don’t have range estimates or pricing… But hopefully they’re coming soon.

The long-awaited 2025 VW ID. Buzz  has taken its sweet time coming to North American shores.

This week, Volkswagen released key details about the all-electric, three-row passenger van that will arrive in the U.S. for the 2025 model year. Okay, maybe it isn’t every detail we were hoping for. But several years after its official debut, any news is good news.

The 2025 Volkswagen ID. Buzz will offer three different models: Pro S, Pro S Plus, and the 1st Edition (available only at launch). All versions will be powered by a 91-kWh battery, and all versions are the three-row model with a long wheelbase.

And there will be plenty of standard and optional features to choose from.


The Basics

The first choice most buyers will make is whether they’re looking for a single-motor or dual-motor version. The single-motor ID. Buzz has rear-wheel drive and makes up to 282 horsepower. The dual-motor versions, meanwhile, are all-wheel drive with muscle boosted up to 335 horsepower.

The base level Pro S model is equipped only with the 282hp option. Both the Pro S Plus and the 1st Edition come standard with the same, but will offer the dual-motor, AWD, 335 hp version as available equipment.


The number of seats is the next important quandary. Do you want the max seven-seat configuration with a middle bench row? Or do you prefer middle captain’s chairs, limiting you to six (stylish) seats in total?

If you want the seven-seat bench model, you’ll have to be okay with the single-motor version with RWD. This is the standard combo on all three trims. You can, conveniently, add six-seat captain’s chairs to a RWD model if you like.

The AWD versions, however, come only with captain’s chairs. There will be no seven-seat ID. Buzz with AWD in the U.S., according to Volkswagen.


ID. Buzz Specs

Volkswagen did reveal all of the available color combinations. The ID. Buzz comes standard in either black, white or silver. But some versions will offer delightfully fun two-tone paint schemes. In the U.S., that will include a white top with the bottom in your choice of orange, yellow, green, blue, charcoal, silver or gray hues. There’s also a silver top with red below.

Every ID. Buzz comes with a healthy dose of standard equipment. At the top of the list is:

  • 12.9-inch center display
  • 5.3-inch digital screen for the driver
  • Wireless charging station for smartphones
  • Astonishing 30-color ambient lighting

Pro S Plus models turn things up a notch. These versions get:

  • Head-up display
  • Surround-view camera
  • Nine-speaker Harman Kardon stereo system

Utility is improved too, thanks to a hidden tow hitch that can be manually retracted out of view. Too bad we still don’t know how much the van can actually tow, though.

Maybe best of all is the available “electrochromic” panoramic glass roof, which can switch between fully transparent and glamorously opaque. You’ll have to pay more for this feature, but we’re itching to see how it looks considering the ID. Buzz carries the spirit of the famously sun-loving VW Microbus.

Finally there’s the 1st Edition. This baby gets equipment from the Pro S Plus, as well as:

  • Two-tone paint
  • Unique 20-inch wheels
  • Roof rails with crossbars
  • Coastal-inspired interior
  • 1st Edition badging
  • Electrochromic roof as standard

What About the Rest?

We still don’t know much about some key aspects of the ID. Buzz. Among them are the max charging rate, estimated total range, or pricing information.

2025 VW ID Buzz

The automaker originally expected deliveries to begin this June; however, it appears now that delays will push arrival closer to the end of 2024. Most estimates place the starting price of the 2025 VW ID. Buzz around $60,000.

For further specifics, we’ll just have to wait. But hey, look on the bright side. At least we can start picking our dream color combo and optional features for the perfect beach cruising van. Pretty groovy stuff.
