On the roof of the Volkswagen minibus, there is a place for the sensors for automatic driving. The autopilot system is being developed by VW Commercial Vehicles.

The latest spy photos of Volkswagen ID Buzz hint that the novelty will receive not only an all-electric power plant, but also an autonomous driving system. Now this assumption is confirmed by a render from VW Commercial Vehicles. The specialists of this division are promoting their research and development in the field of drones.

The rendered car gets a typical “helmet” for self-driving vehicles at the top and unusual side mirrors. Both appear to be equipped with the sensors needed for the autonomous driving system to function.

This commercial van looks more like a production vehicle than a concept ID Buzz. Although the final design of the model is still far away. The ID Buzz drone retains the recognizable shape of the concept, referring to the iconic minibuses of the brand. Reception of retro design is organically combined with modern trends. The render car is devoid of not only traditional rear-view mirrors, but also doors.

The passenger ID Buzz will debut next year, but the appearance of a commercial drone will have to wait several years.

Recall that VW’s autonomous driving system is going to be used on the roads in 2025.

Meanwhile, the compact crossover Volkswagen Taigun was shown in the first picture. He lit up in India along with another cross – Skoda Kushaq. Let’s note the small dimensions of the car to ease the tax burden for the owners.
