    Volkswagen is continuing to build anticipation for its upcoming Microbus–inspired van, called the ID.Buzz. After first showing the production version as an autonomous prototype mule a few months ago, we now have an even better look at the real thing in light camouflage thanks to a preview during the video premiere of the Europe-only ID.5 crossover.

    The preview comes at around 10:15 in the video below and shows an ID.Buzz in a colorful camouflage wrap. We can clearly see its blunt front end, tall sides, and large front glass area, while production-ready details including real headlights, door handles, side mirrors suggest that it's well on its way to becoming a reality. In the video, VW says that more information is coming at the beginning of 2022.

    The U.S. market will have to wait a bit longer for the Buzz, as we got confirmation earlier this year that it won't reach our shores until sometime in 2023. The 2024 ID.Buzz we get will be offered as a long-wheelbase passenger van, while Europe will get other versions including a cargo van without windows. The U.S.-spec model is likely to offer a base rear-wheel-drive single-motor powertrain with around 200 horsepower and an upgrade all-wheel-drive dual-motor setup with around 300 hp. We don't know much about range estimates at this point, but we figure it will offer a bigger battery pack than the smaller ID.4 SUV, which offers up to 260 miles of range.
