2024 Volkswagen ID. Buzz LWB and GTX

Volkswagen has expanded the range of models for its quirky ID.Buzz MPV, with a long-wheelbase version and a high-performance GTX model added to the lineup.

Due to arrive with customers later in 2024, the long-wheelbase (LWB) version of the ID.Buzz is priced from £59,545 and adds extra interior space to the already roomy people carrier, as well as a larger battery and a more powerful motor. The GTX model, meanwhile, has twin electric motors and more power than the existing model, giving it accelerative performance to match a hot hatch. Prices for the ID. Buzz GTX have yet to be announced.

The expansion of the ID. Buzz lineup increases its attraction, and while it doesn’t have too many direct rivals, prospective customers might also be tempted by other roomy electric vehicles, such as the Tesla Model X and Model Y, the Mercedes-Benz EQV and the Kia EV9. VW will hope that the widened choice will help keep the ID. Buzz competitive.

The 2024 Volkswagen ID. Buzz LWB will cost from £59,545 for the Life trim, while the Style model starts at £64,345. That’s only a few hundred pounds more than the equivalent short-wheelbase (SWB) versions.

Prices for the ID. Buzz GTX haven’t been revealed yet.

New 2024 Volkswagen ID. Buzz GTX and LWB: interior and exterior

Little about the new Volkswagen ID. Buzz LWB has changed from the standard model, save for the fact that it’s longer. The overall length has been increased from 4712mm to 4962mm, with 250mm added to the wheelbase. As before, it seats up to seven, but the extra length gives more luggage space and room for the larger 86kWh battery.

Luggage space in five-seat configuration is up to 1340 litres compared to 1121 litres in the SWB model, and if you do need to seat seven you’ll still have a decent 306 litres of space behind the third row of seats. Fold down all the back seats and you’[ll have a whopping 2469 litres of capacity, which essentially makes it a van.

The LWB version of the ID. Buzz comes as standard with seven seats, but you can opt to have five or six seats if you prefer.

The short-wheelbase GTX model has a sporty overhaul to its exterior looks, with revised bumpers and a gloss black grille and matching side mirrors. It rides on 21-inch alloys and is available with a new Cherry Red paint colour, which can also be specified with a two-tone Mono Silver finish.

The ID. Buzz GTX comes with five seats as standard, but can be specified as a six-seater. The seats are a GTX-specific design with a diamond-pattern microfleece upholstery with red seams and piping.

New 2024 Volkswagen ID. Buzz GTX and LWB: electric motors and batteries

The new Volkswagen ID. Buzz LWB gets an upgraded 86kWh battery that gives it a range of up to 291 miles from the Life trim or 286 miles from the Style. The power from its electric motor is 286PS, up from 210PS in the models sold up to now.

The ID. Buzz GTX, meanwhile, gets two electric motors for a combined power output of 340PS, which translates to a 6.1-second 0-62mph time. The battery is a 79kWh unit, and the official range hasn’t yet been announced.

New 2024 Volkswagen ID. Buzz GTX and LWB: trim levels

The new Volkswagen ID. Buzz LWB is available in the same trim levels as the SWB model. The entry-level Life model comes with 19-inch alloy wheels and LED headlights and taillights, with sliding rear side doors, dual-zone climate control and adaptive cruise control, as well as a 12.9-inch infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Style upgrades the wheels to 20-inch units, with LED matrix headlights to increase visibility at night. The side doors open and close electrically, as does the boot lid, and there's a Harman Kardon sound system as standard.

The GTX model builds on the Style trim with 21-inch wheels, a revised grille and a panoramic glass roof as standard. Powered front seats are included, and there’s a 30-colour ambient lighting system to further jazz up the interior.

The standard SWB ID. Buzz has a wheelbase of 2989mm, while the longer LWB model adds 250mm between the wheels for a total wheelbase of 3239mm.

The standard ID. Buzz measures 4712mm in length and 1985mm in width, with a height of 1927mm. The LWB model is longer at 4962mm.

The dual-motor setup in the new ID. Buzz GTX gives it 340PS and a 0-62mph time of 6.1 seconds.
