BERLIN -- Volkswagen plans to launch three different versions of its upcoming full-electric ID Buzz van, aimed at markets in Europe and the U.S.
In Europe, a six-seat passenger version will be aimed at "ride-pooling" services. Rear seats will be individually accessible and will have a separate information screen for each passenger.
The U.S. will get a ride-hailing variant, focused on customers traveling alone or in small groups. It will have only four seats -- two facing forward and two facing toward the rear of the vehicle.
A third version, the ID Buzz Cargo, will be a commercial van, largely aimed at parcel delivery companies, which are growing because of the online shopping boom.
The ID Buzz is due to go is sale late next year in Europe and in 2024 in the U.S.
