With the goal of providing the safest, most accommodating driving experience, the I.D. Buzz is constantly communicating with smart infrastructure and connected vehicles. In I.D. Pilot mode, the vehicle will alert drivers to surrounding attractions and restaurants based on individualized preferences.
While many of the I.D. Buzz’s best features are reliant on intelligent infrastructure (and regulatory approval), its design and tech is promising. We’ll be keeping an eye on future iterations of the I.D. concept for a better idea of what production-ready innovations are just around the corner.
We'll also watch to see if VW decides to bring a modern Microbus to market or if the brand continues to just use it as a platform for enticing concepts in the future.
