The VW ID Buzz GTX with all-wheel drive and 335hp is coming

Ivan, 13 January 2023

Volkswagen's R&D chief Kai Gruenitz shared some exciting news about the ID Buzz. An ID Buzz GTX is in the works, sporting all-wheel drive with dual motors that combine for 250kW (335hp) of power. The GTX will have a "dedicated interior, new exterior, and some additional features", Gruenitz added.

It's not clear when the GTX will arrive. But Gruenitz entertained that VW may also extend the all-wheel drivetrain to the regular ID Buzz.

He also spoke of the upcoming longer wheelbase ID Buzz, saying that it will arrive in the summer. It will be 25cm longer, and have 7 seats in 3 rows. The rear ones will be removable, and there will be captain chairs that can rotate.

Volkswagen is also working on a concept of the California version, an ID Buzz camper. This model is likely coming in 2025.

They said specifically that no gtx model was coming to America

I believe Buzz will be a good vehicle - it's big, they have less room to mess it up with poor packaging. In Beetle or Golf there is no room for mistakes, those take effort to design properly.

VW didn't do well in reviving beetle and scirocco. this is a very pretty vehicle so,I hope it performs better this time. pictures look promising but it is hard to be accepted in the market as an MPV. as an example,renault invested heavily in MPV...
