The long-awaited Volkswagen ID Buzz, a retro-styled electric follow-up to the hugely popular original Microbus, has been revealed - read all the details here.
The new arrival's debut comes five years since it was shown in concept form, and off the back of a long preview campaign which last month saw a camouflaged version of the fully-electric, retro-styled MPV displayed in London.
The disguised ID Buzz was pictured next to Tower Bridge by the official Volkswagen Vans twitter account, with the tweet suggesting it would be touring the city for one day only.
An animated sketch featuring a concept design for the ID Buzz was also revealed, alongside the main teaser clip which presents the ID Buzz with a rainbow camouflage with the models headlights on display.

It will also be the first ID model to be offered both as a passenger vehicle and a commercial vehicle, with production planned to take place at VW’s commercial vehicle plant in Hannover, Germany from early this year.
Volkswagen has only previously revealed one clear look at the model’s design with the same rainbow camouflage, which showed a pre-production version of the multi-seat MPV last year.
The unveiling took place on the sidelines of a presentation dedicated to the new ID 5 at VW's headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany.
Based on Volkswagen’s MEB electric vehicle platform, the new MPV will be offered in both standard- and long-wheelbase guises – the latter not planned to be launched until 2023.
