ID Buzz Campervans For Sale and Hire
The VW ID Buzz has been turning heads since its launch. With a classic profile reminiscent of the classic VW T2 camper, the ID Buzz marries old school charm with modern technology, not to mention the practicality of a MPV with the comfort of a premium SUV and the low running costs of an electric vehicle.
Little wonder that companies are falling over themselves to convert them, sell them and even hire them out as campervans.
Wild Drives was one of the first exclusively electric campervan hire companies in the UK who launched their original eco, electric camper, Eve in 2022.
Now they are the first company to offer the recently launched, award-winning VW ID Buzz as a luxury, sustainable campervan available to hire from £150 per night.
The conversion of the interior was carried out by artisan van converters, Love Campers, based in East Sussex who are well known for their handcrafted, eco-conscious builds.
The campervan features a space-saving slat bed alongside an attractive kitchenette, which includes a clever induction hob, a sink and a fridge.
The interior will be made with a modern ply laminate and bamboo for a bright and retro feel.
On top of its undeniable good looks, the van offers a powerful lithium battery and a solar panel system on the roof, making the camper functional as a totally off-grid experience without burning fossil fuels.
Wild Drives founder Lewis Nyman started the company “to protect the beauty of nature for future generations” and to provide “customers with a unique and eco-friendly travel experience.” The result is one of the most sustainable and nature-friendly travel experiences in the world.
With a WLTP range of 208 miles and a charging time of 5%-80% in 30 minutes, the ID Buzz is well-suited to long distance adventures.
All Wild Drives’ campers have been built by Love Campers in their environmentally certified workshop, with sustainable materials and processes. All the wood used is FSC certified, and the campers have natural fibre for insulation.
Each campervan also comes with a litter picker and sustainable bin liners – “we encourage our customers to leave natural sites in a better state than where they found them,” explains Lewis – as well as a compost bin, for food waste, which is collected and composted at the end of the trip.
If you want to buy your own ID Buzz campervan, then TC Conversions has announced that it will build the first all-electric ID. Buzz campervan conversions for sale in the UK.
The Devon based conversion shop has not converted just one ID. Buzz campervan model, but two.
They are giving buyers the option of an entry-level electric camper based on the ID. Buzz Cargo and a more well-equipped version based on the ID. Buzz Life.
The range will include a full-size pop-up roof, an all-electric, gas-free van sleeping up to four. Other features include an indoor/outdoor kitchen and 165 W bank of solar panels to charge the 160 Ah leisure batteries allowing the machines to efficiently run off-grid. As a backup they also include a EHU inlet to plug into electricity points.
