Volkswagen will produce its I.D. Buzz concept vehicle as a battery-electric minibus that will arrive in North America in 2022 to help the automaker meet its aggressive goal to electrify its lineup by 2025.

Volkswagen made the announcement on Aug. 19 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, Calif. The company will also sell the vehicle in Europe and China.

The I.D. Buzz will draw inspiration from the company's classic Microbus T2 camper that has become a popular road-tripper and beach goer.

"This vehicle is the perfect balance between emotion, usability and sustainability, while also showcasing our technological leadership," said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of the VW's North American region. "The high seating position, cargo capacity, overall versatility and all-wheel drive option packaged into such an appealing design is just what our customers want from us. And it's the perfect fit for the zero-emissions American lifestyle."
