Courtesy of Volkswagen The ID.Buzz was used in a promotional video earlier this month when Ewan McGregor, who plays Obi-wan Kenobi in the new series, drove off in one while R2D2 and C3PO looked on.Both vans are one-off models, and nothing suggests a Star Wars–inspired appearance package will be offered from the factory, more’s the pity.These two graphics packages could be very popular, particularly in the US, where interest in the ID.Buzz is strong.

Back in March, VOA head Scott Keough hinted Volkswagen might be considering building it in the US.“Demand is through the roof, we might need to act accordingly.As you know, the ID.Buzz will be manufactured at our plant in Hannover, Germany, and there’s no announcement regarding the localization of that vehicle.However, there could be an opportunity if demand is beyond what Hannover can deliver.

” The scuttlebutt around the CleanTechnica clubhouse is that we hope demand for the ID.Buzz far exceeds Volkswagen’s wildest dreams..
