Volkswagen ID. Buzz was found to have poor handling in the moose test
The electric minivan Volkswagen ID. Buzz passed the moose test and the slalom test. The car did not show the best results in these handling tests.
Experts checked the handling of the Volkswagen ID. Buzz in two challenging tests. The results were mediocre. The video was published on the YouTube channel km77.com.
Volkswagen ID. Buzz is equipped with an electric motor with a capacity of 204 hp and 310 Nm of torque. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 10.2 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 145 km/h.
The car is shod with Continental EcoContact 6Q tires with a size of 235/50 R20 at the front and 265/45 R20 at the rear. They are perfect for electric vehicles.
First, the Volkswagen ID. Buzz passed the slalom test. The electric minivan passed the obstacle course in 25.7 seconds, which is a good result for its class. The electric car was able to get ahead of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport and Toyota Aygo X.
Later, the electric car was tested in a moose test, which simulates the appearance of an unpredictable obstacle on the road. The task of the test car is to avoid a collision. To pass the test successfully, the car must maneuver at speeds of 77 km/h or more.
At first, the driver tried to drive through the obstacle course at 76 km/h, but the attempt was unsuccessful. The best result was achieved at a speed of 71 km/h.
Experts said that Volkswagen ID. Buzz has good handling. However, its high weight does not allow the car to be maneuverable.
