VW ID.Buzz in the moose test: does not like sudden deviations VW ID.Buzz in the moose test: does not like sudden deviations

The Volkswagen ID.Buzz is not a splinter but in the moose test it performs better than the Multivan T7 in terms of agility and stability

THE Volkswagen ID.Buzz In the moose trial has a few things in its favor and a lot against: to walk long which promotes unlimited habitability, height which is close to 2 meters and a ballast weighing 2.5 tons – including the 77 kWh battery and driver. Nevertheless, it turns out to be safe, but with a lot of effort from security systems. The moose test reveals the car’s reactions that can cause a common driver to struggle when faced with a sudden obstacle to avoid. here is video of Volkswagen ID.Buzz test drive produced by the Spanish magazine Km77, which specializes in road tests and trials.


THE moose trial (Or moose test) is based on the ISO 3888-2 standard. In simpler terms, the test driver driving the test car drives up to a constant test speed. When it comes to a point marked by cones swerves sharply to avoid an obstacle, which could be another car or a wild animal. Before turning, the driver lifts his foot off the accelerator and the evasive maneuver is carried out using the steering wheel only and without any other commands but with the ESC safety system active. The piloting takes place in two phases:

  • obstacle avoidance, performed at an increasingly high speed in the various tests. This is to check how well the steering wheel, suspension, chassis and tires provide manageable control even in the face of an unexpected obstacle;
  • return to the initial trajectory (a 3 meter wide cone lane) without requiring excessive wheel corrections and without knocking over any cones. They can occur in the event of oversteer (tendency to spin) or understeer (the front wheels slip sideways and the car widens its trajectory), two behaviors of a car that has reached its limits of stability.

In addition to the moose test, the Volkswagen ID.Buzz it has been tested in the slalom between the cones at constant speed (approx. 65km/h). In this test, the tendency to roll (the car leans sideways) is exaggerated to bring tire grip to the limit. Here’s how the two went down Volkswagen ID.Buzz tests in the video below.


On the starting line Volkswagen ID.Buzz It appears with Continental EcoContact 6 summer tires 235/50R20 (before) and 265/45 R20 (rear) which are called to an excellent job to allow the control of the electric VAN. The test is only passed when descending at a speed of approx. 72 km/hHowever, the magazine states that: “there are a lot of interventions driver assistance systems This they try to slow down the car and sometimes they interfere with the driver’s maneuvers. All in all, it did better than the Multivan T7 which passed the test at 69 km/h”. “In the video, you can clearly see that the Volkswagen ID.Buzz jerks when electronic aids intervene ».


In the stationary shot, despite the weight, the Volkswagen ID.Buzz is not slow. “In the changes of direction the body shakes a little but freight transfers are fast”. Nevertheless “you have to put a lot of steering and the steering wheel is not very fast”.
