Volkswagen Pauses ID. Buzz Production Over Faulty Battery Components

Just weeks after production of the model started, Volkswagen has paused production of its upcoming new ID. Buzz electric van, this in response to some issues discovered with EV battery components provided by a new supplier.

A report by German outlet Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung reveals that VW was made aware of quality problems with the batteries, more specifically concerning faulty cells/modules that were supplied by a new company. There is speculation that the performances of the batteries, which are of 82-kWh capacity, were not as required, with for example some voltage drops being noted during testing.

As a result, production of the ID. Buzz at the VW plant in Hanover, Germany is on hold, for at least a week and very possibly more. It’s believed no other VW electric models in production received these particular battery components.
