Production for the Volkswagen ID.Buzz Resumes
Talk about an independence day in July 4th fashion, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will resume the manufacturing of the ID.Buzz and ID Buzz Cargo. Back in Hanover, Germany, VW had to halt production of the electric vans in late June (2022). The German automaker halted production for the ID.Buzz because the automaker discovered quality discrepancies with the batteries. Furthermore, the automaker’s production pause lasted a week. Fortunately, the electric vans rolled off the assembly line again on July 4th (2022).
“Production of the ID Buzz at the VWN plant in Hanover has restarted as scheduled on 4 July 2022.”
– Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Spokesperson
The Volkswagen Spokesperson said that the German engineers took a Tylenol, and what was once a pounding migraine has now dissolved into assembly harmony. Additionally, VW will acquire new batteries that meet the quality standards of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
Hanover’s local publication, the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung, stated that production halted because a few cell models failed to meet the necessary performance output. Since the cell model could not deliver the appropriate performance, it resulted in a voltage drop. Moreover, the voltage drop causes a reduction in driving range, and the electric van’s lifespan may reduce dramatically.
The faulty batteries came from a new supplier, which explains why the Hanover facility was the only plant to halt assemblage. Fortunately, other VW facilities constructing the MEB-based electric platform did not need to cease construction of its electric vehicles. Volkswagen discovered the battery discrepancy during internal tests, which is systemic to supplier production adjustments.
Production of the ID.Buzz and ID.Buzz Cargo began in Hanover in early June. Once production of the electric vans began, 500 ID.Buzz’s have crossed the assembly line. However, none of the electric vans have reached the palms of Buzz enthusiasts. Moreover, the vehicles constructed thus far were intended for demonstration purposes.
Even though Volkswagen only lost a week of downtime, it has cost the automaker the production of 200 ID.Buzz’s. The German automaker assures that the lost inventory may reach recovery without any hiccups. Furthermore, the automaker expects the production capacity to return to normal over the next few weeks.
Volkswagen has assembled 45 ID.Buzz’s vehicles a day. However, VW will increase the production to 180 units before the year ends. Through a production setback, Volkswagen assures the ID.Buzz will reach enthusiasts by October (2022).
