The Volkswagen Van is one of the most iconic vehicles in American history. Originally debuting in 1950, the Volkswagen Van made its way to the states and become a cultural icon in the 1960’s. The original Volkswagen Van has transformed into a more commercial van, and people longed for the original Volkswagen Van design to come back. Luckily, Volkswagen heard the pleas, and now the Volkswagen Bus is making an electric comeback. However, the new and improved Volkswagen Van, currently called the I.D. Buzz, will be all electric.

Back by popular demand, the iconic Volkswagen Microbus is coming back. Volkswagen is currently planning on releasing the all-electric I.D. Buzz in 2022. The new designed is similar to the original design to keep all the nostalgia, but Volkswagen added tons of new features to make it look modern. Volkswagen mixed the new and old to create something special. The original bus had a whopping 30 horsepower, the 2022 I.D Buzz has 396 horsepower. That’s more than enough power to get you to the beach and back, all with your surfboard on deck.

Estimates have the I.D. Buzz going nearly 300 miles on one charge. This van can take you wherever you want to go, and deliver all the same adventures the original Volkswagen Van did 70 years ago. Not to mention Volkswagen hopes the I.D. Buzz can charge up to 80 percent in thirty minutes. Thanks to this, the fun never stops, exactly how Volkswagen drew it up.
