The flower children painted their VW vans colorfully and drove along the hippie trails towards eternal bliss. Can its electric successor, the ID Buzz, trigger similar feelings? Our author tried it out over 2000 kilometers.
As soon as I stand in front of the VW ID Buzz, the “Mama & Papas” start: “All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray.” I can’t stop “California Dreamin'”, the anthem of the flower power generation, from ringing in my ears. Is it because of the weather? Drizzle falls from gray clouds, wet brown autumn leaves stick to the roof of the car. Or is it the car? After all, the ID Buzz is the great-grandson of the “Bulli”, which the flower children painted brightly to cheer on the hippie trails towards eternal happiness – Love, PS and Understanding.
