ID. Buzz



The ID.4

The one that started it all for us in Canada. Our very first all-electric cross-over SUVW with available all-wheel drive. With an estimated range of up to 443 km for RWD and up to 410 km for AWD, the ID.4 gives you enough range to go from Vancouver to Kelowna.




The ID. Buzz

That’s right, our classic bus is making a comeback. Only now, it’s reimagined with an electric twist. The iconic Type 2 Microbus gets a futuristic reboot as a fully electric bus. This reimagined design combines the beloved style and spaciousness of the original 1950s classic with cutting-edge technology, electrifying not only the streets but also our memories.




The ID.7

Meet our first-ever all-electric sedan – the ID.7. Complete with a sleek fastback silhouette, quality finishes, refined interior options, and fun-to-drive performance. The combination of ranges up to 700 kms, superior powertrain, spacious interior and premium technologies makes the ID.7 a comfortable experience for long distance travel.




Charging 101

Charging your EV is as easy as plug and play—but here’s a few more tips to help you get the most out of your charging.


  • The "scheduled charging" function allows you to schedule your vehicle to automatically charge at specific times of the day such as off-peak electricity hours.
  • To maintain the maximum capacity of Evs lithium-ion batteries, it is recommended to charge to 80% instead of 100% full.
  • Recharge your EV when it reaches 30% instead of 0%, as letting it fall to 0% before charging will eventually decrease its battery life.
  • While great for recharging quickly on long journeys, DC fast chargers are not recommended for daily use. Like a laptop or cellphone, battery capacity can slowly deteriorate over time with each charge, and DC fast chargers can increase the speed of deterioration if overused. For regular charging, we recommend Level 2 chargers.



Home Charging

There’s no place like home, especially when it comes to charging your EV. The time it takes to fully charge your vehicle at home can differ depending on your setup, so it’s good to know the options.

Level 1 Home Charging

Level 1 charging is simply done via the cable provided with your vehicle and a regular 120v outlet - no different than charging your phone, really. This will add around 5km of range for every hour it’s charging, reaching a full charge after about 83 hours*. That’s the slow option - for faster and more efficient home charging, you can upgrade to a Level 2 charger.


*Estimated charging times are provided as a reference only. Charging times will vary and depend on a variety of factors, including ambient temperature, charger type, battery condition and initial state of charge, vehicle condition and others. Battery capacity decreases with time and use.

Level 2 Home Charging

Many Canadians purchase a Level 2 240v home charging station for their garage. It requires a 240v outlet, similar to one used for a washer or dryer, and VW dealerships can connect you with local electricians for quick and easy home installation. The Level 2 charger can charge your VW from 0%-100% in as little as 6 hours and 15 minutes, which is up to 58 km of range per hour*, so you and your vehicle can wake up ready to go in the morning.

Purchasing Level 2 Chargers

The Volkswagen 2-in-1 Charging Cable can be purchased through your Volkswagen dealer. Depending on which province you call home, you may be eligible for a rebate:


  • In Quebec, the Roulez Vert program offers an additional rebate of $600 with the purchase of the Volkswagen 2-in-1 Charging Cable.◊◊
  • If you live in BC in a single-family home, row home or duplex, you could receive a rebate of up to 50% of the purchase and installation costs of an eligible Level 2 EV charger, to a maximum of $350. ◊◊

    For those in apartments or condos, many modern buildings have Level 2 chargers installed so it’s worth inquiring about the situation in yours.


    ◊◊ Volkswagen Canada does not administer the incentives and is not responsible for any cancellations or changes to the incentive programs. Incentive information is provided for informational purposes only and Volkswagen Canada makes no representations or warranties about the actual amounts or eligibility. Information about the incentives is based on the most current information provided by the applicable government agencies, but could change in the future. The amount of the incentive, terms and conditions of the incentive, and any eligibility or application requirements vary by province. *BC’s EV incentive amount is prorated based on annual income and only available to those earning <$100,000 with the full amount available to those earning <$80,000. BC’s EV charger rebate has different eligibility criteria. Conditions apply. See your dealer for more details or contact the provincial or federal administrator.


Charging on the Go

While charging at home is a convenience exclusive to EVs, anyone who’s ever driven is used to having to give their vehicle some juice while on the road. That’s where public charging stations equipped with Level 2 and/or DC fast chargers come into play.

Level 2 Public Charging

Most public charging stations are equipped with Level 2 charging—the same technology as your Level 2 charger at home. These are also known as “destination chargers” and can be found at malls, restaurants or near local businesses so you can charge your vehicle while going about your day.

DC Fast Chargers

Many public charging stations are also equipped with DC fast chargers which offer the quickest charge times - providing 130km of range in about 10 minutes, or bringing your battery from 10% - 80% in 30 minutes**. These are ideal for when you need to recharge quickly in the middle of a longer trip and you can think of them like an electric gas station, often found at public service stations near highways.


**Estimated charging times are provided as a reference only. Charging times will vary and depend on a variety of factors, including ambient temperature, charger type, battery condition and initial state of charge, vehicle condition and others. Frequent and consecutive fast charging can permanently decrease battery capacity.

Finding Public Chargers

You can use the navigation system in your ID.4 or the Electrify Canada app to find your nearest DC fast charger or public Level 2 charger, and even check the availability for charging at stations close by.

Public Charging Costs

What about paying at the electric pump? Well, as an ID.4 owner, you’ll receive 4 years or up to 1400 kWh of complimentary DC fast charging – whichever your reach first – on the Electrify Canada network.***


***1,400kWh of DC fast charging sessions, available for four years from vehicle purchase. Non-transferable. Not available for commercial use such as ridesharing. Requires Electrify Canada account, app, enrollment in Charging Plan, and acceptance of Terms of Use. After user-initiated charge session stops or vehicle reaches full charge or charging otherwise stops, and 10 minute grace period, idle fees will apply and user is responsible.


Easy Ways to Maximize Your EV Range in Winter

It’s no myth that harsh winter weather can reduce EV range, but there are plenty of ways to prepare your EV for everyone’s least favourite driving season.


  • Drive in ‘B’ mode to activate regenerative braking
  • Drive at a moderate speed to use less energy
  • Brush your vehicle thoroughly if covered in snow
  • Keep your EV plugged in at home
  • Warm up your car while plugged in before departing home
  • Find a cozy spot to park indoors when you can
  • Turn off the heater when charging
  • Use the heated seats and steering wheel as the main source of heat
  • Make sure your tires are at the proper pressure
