The Volkswagen ID. Buzz will be equipped with Continental tires

He was once known as the Volkswagen Type 2, the van that became as mythical as the Beetle will be reborn as an electric vehicle called the ID. Buzz.

Continental played an essential role in the design and development of the ID. Buzz

No vehicle better represents this passion for adventure and the feeling of freedom than Volkswagen's legendary T2 minibus, affectionately known as "Bus," "Van," "Westfalia," or even "Camper." The new ID. Buzz from Volkswagen will carry this lust for life into the era of electric mobility.

The upcoming Volkswagen will be equipped with Continental EcoContact 6 Q tires, which is not surprising for the German company, as Continental has already played a significant role in the design and construction of the ID. Buzz.

As a cooperation and development partner of Volkswagen for many years, Continental has played an important role in the design and development of the ID. Buzz. The company has made significant technological contributions in virtually every area of the cult van - from the software and architecture of the mainframe to the brakes and the sophisticated thermal management system for battery cooling.

In addition, Continental has contributed technological expertise to the ID. Buzz thermal management system, tires and interior materials. As mentioned above, the vehicle will be equipped with Continental's EcoContact 6 Q summer tires, which will be mounted on 19- and 20-inch wheels.

Thanks to their particularly low rolling resistance, the EcoContact 6 Q summer tires save energy and will enable the ID. Buzz as long as possible between charging cycles.

Continental engineers have developed the "ContiSeal" technology to meet the requirements of the ID. Buzz. In the event of a puncture caused by objects up to five millimeters in diameter, this technology reliably seals the tire tread, preventing about 90 percent of tire damage.

What will be the range for ID. Buzz?

According to the German manufacturer, the ID. Buzz will be equipped with two electric motors producing 201 horsepower and 295 horsepower for the all-wheel drive model, the ID. Buzz will have a range of just over 400 km. Its 80 to 111 kWh battery is said to be capable of being recharged to 80 percent in 30 minutes.

The first ID. Buzz models were supposed to appear in Canada in 2022, according to Volkswagen's timeline. Unfortunately, its release date has been delayed many times. It is now scheduled for the year 2024 in Canada.
