We go driving (and surfing) in the Volkswagen I.D. Buzz

The Volkswagen I.D.Buzz is a concept car and I slept in it. I also, read, ate, typed and got changed in it. I even drove it. All of which you might see as entirely irrelevant, given it’s a concept car.

Only this isn’t irrelevant. In fact, this is probably the most relevant thing you could possibly do with a concept – take it to its natural environment and see if it stacks up. See what actual people think of it. See what it looks like when it’s not on a spinning plinth. See if it can do the job it’s designed to do. With I.D. Buzz production confirmed for 2022, it’s a vital test.
