Volkswagen hasn’t released details on the reveal event, but recently displayed a prototype of the vehicle done up in a psychedelic wrap to disguise its finer features.

Full details on the ID.Buzz have not been revealed, but it will be offered in retail and commercial versions with either rear-wheel-drive like the original Microbus or all-wheel-drive and a driving range of up to 300 myl per heffing.

It will also feature a semi-autonomous driving system and be used for a fully-autonomous ride hailing service with technology from Argo AI, a self-driving vehicle company that it co-owns with Ford.

The first ID.Buzz vehicles will go on sale in Europe this year, but U.S. customers will have to wait until 2023 to get their groove back.
