Why Did the VW I.D. Buzz Get Named the 2017 Concept Truck of the Year?

Well, it probably has something to do with the fact that the I.D. Buzz is a premier example of how a larger vehicle can be fueled by electric energy almost as well as sedans and smaller cars. Or maybe it’s the ability to travel up to 270 miles per charge. Maybe the panel of judges liked how the batteries and drive system are stored in the floor of the vehicle, which opens up a large amount of room for passengers to spread out and get comfortable.

Then again, the maximum cargo capacity of 162.5 cubic feet could have something to do with it. Plus, the futuristic steering wheel is able to sense the driver’s intentions, the headlights and exterior lighting can communicate with pedestrians as programmed in its I.D. Pilot autonomous driving mode, and the ambient lighting inside and out gives the I.D. Buzz a very distinctive look.
