Volkswagen at once said its electrical ID.Buzz from would reach dealers by 2022 (this message has been removed but you can see it in the internet archive), men news from its commercial department confirms that at least one revelation is still on deck for next year. In addition, VW autonomous driver Christian Senger said “This year we are conducting field trials for the first time in Germany, where the self-driving system by Argo AI will be used in a version of the future ID. BUZZ of Volkswagen commercial vehicles. “
Argo AI is the autonomous driving technology that Ford and VW have partnered to invest in and develop. The commercial vehicle team develops vans to use the self-propelled technology based on ID.Buzz to operate a driving concept and pooling concept with autonomous vans that can drive in urban areas.
With the announcement, VW also released this concept sketch (above) of the self-driving test vehicle that Germans can see on roads right now. LIDAR sensors are visible in the corners, and a roof-mounted dent needs to be more technical to help the van feel its surroundings. As Autoblog note, this concept does not have the two-tone retro-themed color scheme we have seen in previous ID.Buzz releases, but we will have to wait for the unveiling to see how it pays homage to VW vans of the past.
