In today's sustainability-driven world, Volkswagen's ID. Buzz Cargo stands out as a testament to the future of electric campervans. As the transition towards electric vehicles (EVs) accelerates, they represent not just a technological shift but also a commitment to a more environmentally conscious future. With that said, how are they going to change the campervan industry?
Well, we were lucky enough to have one of these come through the workshop very recently so in this blog we'll explore the conversion we did as well as our thoughts on how the ID. Buzz Cargo will shape the campervan industry.
Taylored's Unique Conversion
The ID. Buzz Cargo, with its backlog of orders, has undoubtedly captured the market's attention. At Taylored Campervans, we were very excited when we had the opportunity to work on this electric gem. Our conversion, created as a bespoke design just for this conversion, revolved around a functional yet aesthetically pleasing storage and bed setup.
Our design innovation includes a multi-purpose table that effortlessly converts into a seat/bed box. This design not only maximises space but also offers a lot of versatility to the owner. The integrated storage within the bed area, combined with an extendable exterior table, ensures that every inch is utilised efficiently. The additional side cubby boxes are a nod to our commitment to providing ample storage solutions.
Drawing parallels with our NV200 conversion from 2017, we envision a similar transformation for the ID. Buzz Cargo, albeit with a modern eco-friendly twist. With the recent unveiling of the Volkswagen T7 California Concept Campervan, it's evident that larger multi-van sectors might overshadow the ID. Buzz Cargo due to size and load capacity. However, we're eager to explore more conversions for this model in the interim.
A Deep Dive into Design and Efficiency
Volkswagen's ID. Buzz Cargo is not just another electric vehicle; it's a masterclass in design and efficiency. The modular interior is adaptable, catering to a range of business needs, from swift deliveries to mobile workshops. This adaptability, combined with its eco-friendly footprint, could make it a game-changer.
The van's interior exudes elegance without compromising on functionality. The spacious front dash, with its ergonomic design, ensures comfort for three adults. Thoughtfully placed storage compartments, from door bins to dashboard shelves, reflect Volkswagen's attention to detail.
The rear of the van measures 4,712mm long and 1,985mm wide which is slightly shorter than most medium-sized vans. VW claims it can fit two Euro pallets inside which still gives you some room to play with in regards to a conversion. The compact exterior dimensions were made to ensure ease of manoeuvrability in congested urban areas.
Performance Metrics that Impress
The ID. Buzz Cargo's performance metrics are commendable. Its 77kWh battery, slightly ahead of its competitors, promises a range of up to 256 miles on the combined WLTP test. Even more impressive is that the WLTP City figure (which focuses on low-speed driving) is 356 miles.
This range, combined with its fast-charging capabilities, positions it as a leader in the electric van segment and the electric van with the longest range for sale today.
