It is the second model based on the modular electric drive matrix to be built in Emden.
A generous interior developed according to a fundamental principle that has been continuously perfected over seven decades: maximum use of minimal space. Accompanied by short body overhangs, balanced weight distribution, a low centre of gravity and rear-wheel drive – these are the elements that have set the original apart in this class since 1950. Available in the future as fully electric versions based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB), in the form of the ID. Buzzand ID. Buzz Cargo

The drive system question - The future of the car: The five greatest strengths of e-mobility

Does this sound familiar? Friends, colleagues and family members discussing whether electric cars are truly the future. Would other drive systems – particularly hydrogen – not be a better solution? Most scientists believe this question has already been answered. “It has been shown in many studies that electric drive systems are by far the most efficient methods for powering vehicles,” says Prof. Maximilian Fichtner, battery expert at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). We have summarised what you need to know in five points – the great strengths of e-mobility.
