5. Bi-Directional Charging
Perhaps one of the most unique features of the VW ID. Buzz is that you can save money by charging it during the day, and use the power from an optional storage battery to operate household appliances at night. This power transfer is possible via a special DC bi-directional wall box. This charging box is a separate purchase from your ID. Buzz and must be installed by a certified electrician.
6. Get a Federal Tax Credit
Did you know the government will give you up to a $7,500 federal tax credit to offset the initial purchase price of an electric vehicle? This considerably brings down the cost of the Volkswagen ID. Buzz, which is expected to start in the $45,000 range.
7. A Quiet Ride
A lot of noise from the road comes from a combustible engine. With the battery-powered VW ID. Buzz, you get nothing but a quiet ride. That’s because there’s a barely-there audio soundtrack piped in to cover any noise you might hear from the powertrain. However, you can turn up the volume during your drive by playing your favorite tunes through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
8. Sensational Exterior Style
One of the most identifiable features of the original Volkswagen Bus was its exterior paint. The all-new Volkswagen ID. Buzz still offers two-toned exterior paint, but with a fresh take. Choose from four two-tone options, and seven single colors. The two-tone options will feature white tops with lime yellow, blue, green or orange.
9. Safety Features That Are Smart
When most people think about Volkswagen vehicles, they think of advanced safety features. The VW ID. Buzz is no different. Of course, you get all the usual safety features, like Front Assist and Lane Assist, but you also get innovative features like the ID. Light. This feature is an LED strip in your dashboard that lights up in various colors and flows in different directions. This allows you the ID. Buzz to communicate with you via your peripheral vision.
10. The ID. Buzz Has a Back-Up Plan
Even though the VW ID. Buzz is set to get 342 miles per charge, there might be times when you can’t get to a charging station. Don’t worry, the ID. Buzz comes equipped with solar panels on the roof that provide enough charge for 10 extra miles.
11. The Volkswagen ID. Buzz Won’t Be Available Until 2024
Even though the ID. Buzz won’t be available for a couple more years, there are still plenty of used cars in Kansas City that provide everything you’re looking for in a vehicle. Call a Volkswagen dealership near you to test drive the VW Golf, Jetta, or Passat.
From the classic VW Beetle to the brand-new ID. Buzz, you can always expect Volkswagen to have something for every driver.
