First looks at the electric Volkswagen ID Buzz were shared last month and new footage shows some of the first drives in a prototype of the vehicle.

A pre-production Volkswagen ID Buzz was tested out and shared by Bjørn Nyland in a video on Sunday, showing off the vehicle’s driving experience and interior as Nyland cruises around Copenhagen, Denmark.

Nyland also mentions that he has to have someone from Volkswagen present to drive the vehicle, which the passenger goes on to explain is a law established for anyone driving pre-production vehicles.

In the video, Nyland is quick to compare the vehicle’s driver’s seat to other Volkswagen ID vehicles, saying that as soon as he sat in the ID Buzz, he felt the muscle memory come back for the ID family interface.

In addition, Nyland says the vehicle doesn’t feel like a van because it feels more refined, making it seem like he’s actually driving an SUV.

The Volkswagen ID Buzz is set to begin delivering to customers in the U.S. in 2023.

The vehicle will also include an “ID California” Buzz electric camper variant, designed for outdoor and camping use, with the roof even including a pop-up camper built-in.
