Looking like a cross between the old micro bus and a modern space ship, the I.D. Buzz electric vehicle from Volkswagen was named the 2017 Concept Truck of the Year at the recent North American Concept Vehicle of the Year festivities. Judges were wowed by the innovation that turns an old design into an energy alternative vehicle that may be showing up in the future on the showroom of Chapman VW Tucson. “We are proud that the I.D. Buzz was chosen as the 2017 Concept Truck of the Year, and that Volkswagen has been given this honor for the fourth time,” according to VW VP Abdallah Shanti. “Volkswagen will lead the world in the shift to electric mobility, and the I.D. Buzz demonstrates the kind of innovative design and engineering that’s a trademark of VWs past and future.”

Demonstrates Electric Power on Larger Vehicle

The I.D. Buzz is similar in size to the now extinct VW Bus, showing that it is possible to use electric power on larger vehicles. Constructed on the new Modular Electric Drive Matrix that VW pioneered, the I.D. Buzz offers plenty of interior room for large families. All the electronics and batteries are located in the floor, allowing for maximum use of interior space. The I.D. Buzz has a maximum range of 270 miles, proving that engineers are continuing to conquer the dreaded “range phobia” that has limited electric vehicle sales in the past. The I.D. Buzz also has other futuristic technologies, including a retractable steering wheel and lighting that actually communicates with pedestrians.

Recognizing Innovative Design

The North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards recognize those automakers who take risks to advance the automotive industry in terms of engineering, style and response to consumer needs. Automotive journalists serve as volunteer judges to rate entrants, which must not be scheduled for immediate production. There is a production preview category to award a model that is intended to be manufactured in the near future. The awards are intended to help shape the future of the automotive industry.

Plenty of Innovative Models to Buy Now

While the I.D. Buzz is not yet available for sale at Chapman VW Tucson, there are plenty of innovative models for sale.

Bathe in Luxurious Interior
