Check out some of the first interior pictures of the VW ID Buzz
Millennials will surely remember Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Machine, while the Woodstock generation is likely to be nostalgic for the Volkswagen Type 2 Microbus. Whatever images and feelings this iconic microbus evokes, most of us will be delighted to discover that Volkswagen has reinterpreted one of its most memorable models, creating a microbus that is sure to become the symbol of a new generation.
The two-tone painted Volkswagen ID.Buzz has a retro look inspired by the Type 2 Microbus and a design that will appeal to Generation Z. The all-electric powertrain with fully automated driving mode shows that the German automaker understands demand patterns and is well-prepared to help decarbonize the planet.
As for the interior of the Volkswagen ID.Buzz, the Germans did a fantastic job. It’s safe to say it doesn’t get much better. From the unique features, like a built-in bottle opener and ice scraper, to the incredible ones cute design elements, everything about the ID.Buzz is appealing. And bucking a global trend to build rather boring-looking cars, Volkswagen has built a quirky, exciting vehicle.
The interior of the VW ID Buzz: cuteness in overload
The orange and white color scheme chosen for the interior expresses happiness in abundance! It is not for nothing that people associate orange with joy and sunshine, while white is the color of innocence. Volkswagen did a fantastic job with the color tones here. The inside conveys the meaning of happiness and innocence. In fact, just stepping inside this van will make you feel younger, happier and more carefree.
We love the Easter eggs inside the VW ID Buzz
On the flip side, arguably a Volkswagen marketing guru created these adorable Easter eggs because only Taylor Swift is so brilliant at teasing her fan base with little details that leave her music lovers guessing. For example, Car and Driver highlights the van silhouette carved into the plastic located on the side of the rear seat shell. Another cute van is carved into a yellow plastic piece, while there’s a whimsical smiley face on the inside of the door handle. Autoevolution found the same silhouette printed on the back glass.
On the more serious side, the “ID”. Logo is nicely embroidered on the front seats. Here we love the contrast between the creamy fonts in the logo and the orange pads. It’s the little things that make the difference.
To further illustrate Volkswagen’s commitment to eco-consumption, the German car brand made the upholstery from vegan leather, while making the floor and seat covers from recycled fabrics. Not to be forgotten: Marc Lichte, Head of Audi Design, praised “vegan leather” as a unique selling point for customers in 2019. According to ABC News, Lichte’s teenage daughters said to him: “I don’t want to sit on a dead cow.”
Of course, Volkswagen has also brought the environmentally conscious trend into its fleet.
Another detail approved by Millennials and Gen Z is the interactive “ID. Light” that extends across the windshield above the instrument panel in front of the driver and presents information based on the color and position of the light signal. For example, if “ID. Light’ is red, the driver knows that his van is signaling danger and the need to brake. The ID Buzz also comes with 10 color ambient lighting for the standard package and 30 color tones for optional.
The European version of ID Buzz comes with an entry-level interior called “Soul” that works with all exterior colors. Meanwhile, the “Mistral” interior trim strips are available for the five-seater. Candy White is used on the instrument panel, door panel accents, seat outer panels and seat backs, and optionally the steering wheel. The stronger colors ‘X-Blue’, ‘Orange’, ‘Yellow’ and ‘Green’ decorate the instrument panel and the upper area of the door inserts as well as the inner seat linings.
In terms of infotainment and gadgets, the ID Buzz comes with USB-C charging ports, a tablet for wireless charging, dual-zone climate control and a 10-inch infotainment system with a 10-inch display, but customers can upgrade the display a 12 inch device.
The interior of the VW ID Buzz: Open space where every detail counts
The Volkswagen ID Buzz’s eccentric design maximizes space beautifully, creating the illusion of endless space. The front seats in the Passenger ID Buzz have adjustable armrests, while the Cargo model only has the armrest on the door cards. It is worth noting that the higher trims are also equipped with adjustable massage seats with electric controls. We discover an even more interesting design element in the back of the front seats, where passengers will find fold-down tables.
In terms of space, this delightful microbus has the ideal dimensions. Thus, 137.7 cubic feet of cargo space offers enough space for tailgate, outdoor and camping adventures, hauling groceries and even moving furniture.
The Volkswagen ID Buzz is not just a leap into the past, but the right step into the future
