The new Volkswagen ID. Buzz isn’t officially a campervan… yet. That will come with the longer wheelbase version (which is also the version that will eventually be available in the USA). However, Henry Catchpole has found a way to turn it into a Camper. With the ingenious Ququq BusBox-4, you can quickly convert the VW ID. Buzz into a mobile bedroom and kitchen. It’s not quite a full Westfalia-style transformation but it is rather appealing, not least because you can slide the whole thing out and revert the Buzz to its original five-seat layout. 

Of course, you might be the sort of person that thinks hotels were invented for a reason but still likes the idea of owning a Buzz. And why not, it’s a very funky-looking vehicle with its optional two-tone paint (this one is Bay Leaf green) and it seems to make the world a slightly happier place wherever you go. 

The fact that the ID. Buzz is an EV is both a blessing and a curse. It’s a boon because it makes it feel refined and relatively quick – not things you usually associate with a vehicle like this. However, with a 77kWh battery, the Buzz doesn’t have a great range and, if you live in the UK, the charging network still feels inadequate if you want to have an adventure that takes you further than 100 miles from your driveway.

Then there’s the festive fun. Santa Claus would certainly be able to fit plenty of presents in the back of a Buzz (although an ID. Buzz Cargo would be even better) and there is room for a tree on the dashboard (look closely). With bi-directional charging you could even use it to help run all the Christmas lights at home. And yes, the decoration is real (there’s a link below if you want one).

We hope you enjoy the film – a slightly more perched version of The Driver’s Seat.
