During the 2018 Hanover commercial vehicle show, Volkswagen revealed the ID Buzz electric cargo van concept.

The ID Buzz is a cargo van concept unveiled in Detroit at the beginning of 2017. It should be noted, the Cargo features a rear overhang that’s 106mm longer than the regular ID Buzz.

Overall, the ID Buzz Cargo measures 5048mm long, 1976mm wide, 1963mm tall, and rides on a 3300mm wheelbase. Maximum payload is rated at 800 kilograms.

Up front, the ID Buzz Cargo has seating for three: a bucket seat for the driver, and a bench for the passengers with a fold-down middle seat. In the back, the cargo space has been fitted with shelving, lighting and sensors from Sortimo, a company specialising in van equipment and fit outs.

Combined with on-board tablets, Wi-Fi, and access to an external communication network, it’s possible packages in the Cargo can be tracked in real time.

While the ID Buzz rides on 22-inch wheels, the Cargo version has slightly more practical 20-inch rims paired with 235/55 tyres.

The car presented at the Hannover show is said to feature a 150kW electric motor, and is capable of reaching an electronically limited top speed of 160km/h.

Volkswagen says the Cargo could theoretically be fitted with an all-wheel drive setup like the one used in the original ID Buzz concept.

A solar panel array is affixed to the roof of the ID Buzz Cargo and, under ideal conditions, is capable of generating an extra 15km of range per day. On-board 230V/12A electrical sockets allow tradies to use their power tools at any site without resorting to an external generator.

It’s not known if Volkswagen is planning on putting the ID Buzz Cargo into production. The passenger-focused ID Buzz was given the green light in mid-2017.
