The ID. Buzz Cargo concept vehicle has a payload of 800kg, is 5,048 mm long, 1,976 mm wide, 1,963 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 3,300 mm.
Like all members of the ID. Family, the ID. Buzz Cargo has an exceptionally large interior. Thanks to the Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB), the battery is integrated into the vehicle floor, lowering the vehicle's centre of gravity for superior handling. A rear axle steering system combined with the large turn-in angle of the front wheels, gives the concept in an extremely small turning circle of less than 10.0 metres – ideal for manoeuvring in the city. With the MEB it is possible – dependent on battery size and the model concerned – to achieve ranges of about 330 to over 500 km (as per WLTP).
Symmetrical rear wing doors make it ideal for pulling right up to loading ramps. There is also an optional workbench that folds out from the rear doors and high-performance work tools can be supplied with power from 230V electrical sockets (16A) via the battery.
The ID. Buzz Cargo automatically recognises authorised individuals who have the digital key on their smartphone. Once inside, the cabin features a familiar driver's seat and a double bench-seat configuration, but that is where the familiarity ends. The middle seat folds down to reveal a workplace with an integrated laptop, and in fully autonomous ID. Pilot mode, the instrument panel folds away and the driver’s seat rotates to allow the driver to work on the move.
The augmented reality (AR) head-up display projects the instrument panel in 3D over the road ahead, positioning key information right where the driver needs it, in their line of sight. The steering dispenses with the traditional spoked wheel in favour of a multi-functional touchpad. Rear-view mirrors are also a thing of the past, replaced by cameras and screens. Features such as infotainment and climate control are operated through a portable, integrated tablet.
