New sporty Volkswagen ID Buzz GTX revealed during annual results

March 21, 2024

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has revealed the latest version of the Volkswagen ID Buzz Cargo range with a new sporty Volkswagen ID Buzz GTX.

The GTX will be the most powerful Volkswagen van to date with a 250kW (337hp) motor expected to reach 62mph in just 6.5 seconds. It gets twin motors with all-wheel-drive and is available in two wheelbases and two battery sizes with seating for five to seven people.

The ID Buzz GTX uses a new 79kWh battery in the standard wheelbase model, while the long wheelbase van gets the option of an 86kWh battery.

Electric power is split between the two axles with an 80 kW front axle motor and a 210 kW motor for the rear axle. Despite being the fastest Volkswagen CV model, it will be electronically limited to 160 km/h.

It’s not just fast on the road, though. Charging rates will be at 185kW for the 79kWh battery, and at up to 200kW for the larger 86kWh battery. That will be enough to charge the GTX from 10% to 80% in just 26 minutes.

The GTX will have a towing capacity of up to 1,800 kg and has space for up to 2,496 litres of luggage, depending on the seat configuration and vehicle size.

Details of the new ID Buzz GTX were revealed during the annual Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles results, where VWCV posted record profits and sales.

The ID Buzz GTX gets an exclusive black headliner and unique seats to the GTX with red stitching, and a black ArtVelours Eco microfleece with a new diamond pattern.

There’s also red details on the centre trim and GTX lettering in chrome.

ChatGPT will also be incorporated into the GTX models along with a new head-up display option. It gets a new menu navigation and graphics, as well as a faster processor. The touchscreen in the ID Buzz GTX has increased in size to 12.9in, up from 12in and there are now illuminated touch bars for temperature and volume control.

Long wheelbase versions of the ID. Buzz will also now be available with a panoramic sunroof with smart glass that uses an integrated liquid crystal film to allow it to be electronically switched from transparent or opaque.

Prices for the ID Buzz GTX will be more than €70,000 in Germany will, which will likely translate to a price in excess of £70,000. Deliveries will begin in September.
