Volkswagen of America will celebrate the first ever International Volkswagen Bus Day on June 2 with the global debut of Volkswagen’s three-row ID. Buzz electric vehicle.
The inaugural celebration for Microbus fans will be held in Huntington Beach, California. A live broadcast starts at 11 a.m. EST on RadioWoodstock.com and on YouTube.
The event, which is geared toward both the public and the media, will include new product showcases, live entertainment and streamed programming plus a “Cars & Coffee” style gathering for classic Volkswagen Bus owners.
Consumers who own Type 1, Type 2, Cab Pickup, Vanagon, and Westfalia busses are invited. Space is limited to the first 300 busses registered. Each bus registered will receive free parking and one special ID. Buzz commemorative gift.
Volkswagen brand fans and enthusiasts seeking more information on the celebration can find more information on a dedicated web page.
Adding the International Volkswagen Bus Day designation commemorates a major milestone in the brand’s journey to electrification, according to the automaker.
It is National Day Calendar’s first vehicle make/model specific designation to receive International Day status, according to both companies.
The ID. Buzz is the latest addition to Volkswagen of America’s growing fleet of all-electric vehicles. Already available in Europe in two-row and cargo vehicle configurations, the three-row model is planned for sale in the North American market starting in 2024.
The zero-tailpipe emission ID. Buzz transfers the design of one of the greatest automobile icons—the Microbus—to the era of electric mobility. Its short overhangs, spacious interior and available two-tone color palette pay homage to the past, while the high-tech interior, progressive design features and EV technology help make it modern.
