The Volkswagen family is world-renowned for its ability to stay on the cutting edge of tech innovation and conceptualize some of the coolest vehicles we’ve ever seen. Its newest endeavor, the I.D. Buzz microbus concept, has been named Concept Truck of the Year at the 16th Annual North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards! Check it out!
Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ concept features
Part of the I.D. BUZZ’s appeal is that it’s set to become one of the first all-electric truck trims we’ve ever seen. Built on the Volkswagen Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB), it features a battery powered drivetrain accented by interior ambient lighting, a reactive steering wheel and communicative exterior lighting. In terms of performance, the I.D. BUZZ is capable of holding a 270-mile all-wheel drive charge, as well as offering passengers up to 162.5 cubic feet of cargo space. All this has led to it becoming a favorite in the EV community.

Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ award selection and reaction
The Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards were held on July 30 in Plymouth, Michigan, and a panel of more than two dozen judges evaluated the microbus on its different capabilities and innovations. This obviously means that the I.D. BUZZ winning is a major achievement, as referenced by the reaction from Abdallah Shanti, Executive Vice President and Group Chief Information Officer for Region Americas of Volkswagen. Check out what he had to say!
“We are proud that the I.D. Buzz was chosen as the 2017 Concept Truck of the Year, and that Volkswagen has been given this honor for the fourth time…Volkswagen will lead the world in the shift to electric mobility, and the I.D.
