The German brand has finally declassified the ID.Buzz with the GTX prefix, which has surpassed the hatchback in power [ID.3 GTX](https://motor.ru/news/id-3-gtx-14-03-2024.htm) and station wagon [ID.7 GTX Tourer](https://motor.ru/news/id.7-gtx-tourer-14-03-2024.htm). The “charged” electric van is distinguished by its characteristic GTX appearance, dual-engine power plant and all-wheel drive, as well as fast charging: the energy reserve can be replenished from 10 to 80 percent in less than half an hour.

A power plant with two electric motors with a total power of 340 horsepower ID.Buzz GTX is installed by default. This electric van accelerates from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in 6.5 seconds, and its top speed is limited to 160 kilometers per hour. In addition, the performance ID.Buzz was promised special chassis settings.

Volkswagen will offer two versions – with a standard wheelbase and a 79-kilowatt-hour battery, and with an extended wheelbase and an 86-kilowatt-hour battery. The range is unknown, but charging speeds have been revealed: the smaller unit supports 185 kilowatts of power and charges from 10 to 80 percent in 25 minutes, while the larger one takes about 30 minutes using a 200-kilowatt terminal.

Externally, the ID.Buzz GTX can be identified by its updated bumpers, boomerang-shaped LED elements and a striking Cherry Red body shade combined with dark accents. The diameter of the wheels is 19 inches, and larger 21-inch ones are available for an additional fee.

The interior has a black ceiling and seats, an enlarged touch display with a diagonal of 12.9 inches instead of 12 for the regular ID.Buzz. Multimedia runs on a faster chip, the IDA voice assistant additionally supports ChatGPT, and a head-up display is optional. In addition, the “long” version can be equipped with a panoramic sunroof, which Volkswagen describes as the largest in the world. The glass changes transparency at the touch of a button.

The ID.Buzz GTX will be released in Europe in the summer of 2024.
