VW confirms plans to produce upcoming all-electric microbus and crossover in US
German automaker Volkswagen (VW) has recently confirmed that it is planning to produce two of its forthcoming all-electric vehicles in the US. The two vehicles would be the automaker’s all-electric I.D. BUZZ microbus and its all-electric I.D. CROZZ crossover.
The production plans for the all-electric microbus and crossover were shared by VW with Autocar, against the backdrop of the fact that the automaker’s upcoming electric-vehicle (EV) efforts are focused at its series of ‘I.D.’ concept vehicles which are powered by its new MEB platform for EVs.
The first mass-market EV to be launched by VW will be the Golf-sized I.D. for model year 2020. The other vehicles in the automaker’s series of ‘I.D.’ concept vehicles include the I.D. VIZZION sedan, the crossover I.D. CROZZ Concept -- which will apparently be a compact SUV -- and the I.D. BUZZ microbus, which will be a new version of VW’s iconic microbus.
With regard to VW’s plans to produce its upcoming all-electric microbus and crossover in the US, Hinrich Woebcken -- VW’s North America head -- said in a confirmation to Autocar that both the vehicles will be ‘Americanised’ for the market.
Asserting that VW needs to produce the all-electric microbus and crossover in the US “for strong product momentum,” Woebcken said: “It’s not possible to come into a high-volume scenario with imported cars. We want to localise electric mobility in the US.”
