Volkswagen has been widely praised for another bet on the electric car market, and Electric Kombi, or ID.Buzz, is an example of this. The model is also packed with technology, despite not having an intelligent climate system, the model comes with an autonomous parking system, among other technologies.

The ID.Buzz, which was launched last May and is already available for pre-sale, has been well received in Europe, but unfortunately Brazilians will still have to wait a little longer to get their hands on one.

The prediction is that ID.Buzz will not reach the Brazilian market before 2024, at least. However, Volkswagen has already received more than 26,000 pre-orders for the model, and soon there will be around 10,000 units available at dealerships. Of course, this unexpected demand has surprised the company, but it is proof that the market is increasingly interested in electric vehicles.
