Volkswagen ID. Buzz voted MPV of the Year at Top Gear Awards 2023

Volkswagen’s all-electric ID. Buzz has been voted MPV of the Year at the Top Gear Awards 2023.

The annual Top Gear Awards commend the best cars and leading manufacturers of the year across a wide range of categories, and are evaluated by an expert panel of editors

Praising the ID. Buzz in particular for its impressive spaciousness and clever storage configurations, the judges also highlighted the vehicle’s futuristic interior and innovative technology.

Thanks to Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, there is no compromise on space or versatility. With foldable passenger seats and ample load space, the ID. Buzz was deemed the ultimate family-friendly car, suitable for the challenges of everyday life.

Volkswagen’s first purpose-built electric van was additionally praised for its ability to make the switch to e-mobility more attractive by outperforming its competitors on driving fun, while harking back to the manufacturer’s iconic classic camper.

That said, the fully-connected infotainment systems and forward-thinking powertrain work to showcase the ID. Buzz’s innovation and futuristic technology.

Ollie Marriage, Head of Car Testing at Top Gear, said: “The ID. Buzz is a gamechanger. Nothing feels as bright, modern and exciting to be in. No SUV is anything like as spacious or family friendly. No electric car is more desirable. No MPV has ever had the world at its feet. Until now.

Collecting the award, Head of National Sales at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Rob Holdcroft, said: “We are delighted the ID. Buzz has been voted MPV of the Year 2023 by Top Gear, and recognised as a unique and exciting offering. We’ve been amazed by the amount of attention the vehicle has received since its launch, and hearing high praise such as this really is testament to the remarkable work of our entire team.”
