Capacities can reach up to 2,469 litres. But the ID. Buzz GTX isn’t just about power and practicality. It’s packed with cutting-edge technology too. New hardware and software updates include a head-up display. Next-generation infotainment systems, illuminated touch bars, and the innovative IDA voice assistant are featured.
