VW just announced that the 2025 ID. Buzz, its electric “reincarnation” of the Microbus, will be offered in three trims in the US: Pro S, Pro S Plus, and a launch-only 1st Edition.

The US 2025 VW ID. Buzz

The 2025 US ID. Buzz’s range and pricing will be divulged closer to launch, but in the meantime, VW tells us all three trims will only be offered with a 91 kWh battery. RWD models will have 282 horsepower, and 4Motion AWD models will have maximum horsepower of 335. VW hasn’t yet said whether the ID. Buzz will come with a charger, and performance details haven’t been shared.

The US ID. Buzz features three rows, unlike the European version, which has two rows and a shorter wheelbase.

Volkswagen has yet to announce the price of each trim. Since the US version of the ID. Buzz won’t be built in the US, it won’t qualify for the $7,500 IRA tax credit. However, the German automaker states on its website that it anticipates “that Volkswagen Credit will offer an EV Lease Bonus based on the federal tax credits available at the time of lease.”

Pro S models will be available in RWD only, with a bench seat to accommodate up to seven passengers. Pro S Plus and 1st Edition models offer RWD and AWD configurations.

On Pro S Plus RWD models, bench seating is standard, with an available captain’s chair package with seating for six. RWD 1st Edition models only offer a rear bench. Captain’s chairs come standard on Pro S Plus and 1st Edition 4Motion AWD models.

Pro S Plus: The Pro S Plus features a head-up display that projects key information in front of the driver, and Area View cameras provide a view of what’s around the vehicle. It’s got a 700-watt harman/kardon sound system with nine speakers.

Want to tow things? It’s got a manually retractable tow hitch – VW says tow ratings and full specs will be announced closer to launch.

An electrochromic panoramic glass roof, which can change from transparent to opaque with the swipe of a finger, is also on offer. There’s an available Flexboard with two fabric storage bins, which creates a flat floor when the seats are folded.

Launch-only 1st Edition: Available only with two-tone exterior, the 1st edition, which is based on the Pro S trim, comes with unique 20-inch wheels, roof rail cross bars, and 1st Edition exterior badging. All 1st Edition models come with coastal-inspired interior (it’s called Dune, more details below), heritage-inspired floor mats, and gifts for the proud new owner. The electrochromic panoramic glass roof, Area View cameras, and Flexboard are included.

Exterior and interior features

The US 2025 ID. Buzz’s exterior features a retro-inspired oversized VW logo, short overhangs, and an expansive greenhouse. All models come equipped with 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

Dual power-sliding rear doors with available Easy Open and Close make it easy to climb into the third row, and the classic sliding windows are also now fully powered. There’s also keyless access and a power tailgate.

The colors are FUN – depending on trim level, two-tone options pair a Candy White top with Energetic Orange, Pomelo Yellow, Blue Charcoal, Mahi Green, Metro Silver, Cabana Blue, or Indium Grey beneath. There are also three single-tone options: Metro Silver, Candy White, and Deep Black Pearl.  

VW is offering a choice of three unique interior colors for all three ID. Buzz trims:

  • Moonlight includes dark brown leatherette seats with white piping, blue door inserts, and a dark wood-look dash, paired with black headliner.
  • Dune pairs light gray leatherette seats with clay-colored piping, clay door inserts, and a light wood-look dash.
  • Copper gives mid-century modern vibes with rich brown leatherette seats with yellow piping, brown door inserts, and a washed wood-look dash.

Tech specs that come standard for all ID. Buzz trims include a 12.9-inch infotainment display, a 5.3-inch ID. Cockpit digital instrument cluster, 30-color ambient lighting, ID. Light driver support system, wireless phone charging, and wireless App-Connect.

Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE advanced driver assistance technology is also standard and features hands-on semi-automated capability, including driver-initiated lane changes where the vehicle can complete a lane change maneuver with Travel Assist activated. All ID. Buzz models feature Park Assist Plus with Memory Parking.

The 2025 VW ID. Buzz will launch in the US in 2024. There won’t be a reservation system, so you’ll have to keep an eye out for when they arrive at your local dealer.

We’ll update with more details when Volkswagen releases them.
