Volkswagen is one step closer to delivering the ID Buzz in the US, today revealing initial battery, powertrain, and trim options available when the all-electric microbus goes on sale later this year.

To start, the automaker will offer a First Edition model that comes with exclusive wheels, badging, and extra unknown “gifts.” Alongside that, VW has a Pro S model that is rear-wheel drive only (282 horsepower) and a Pro S Plus that can option in all-wheel drive (335 horsepower) and comes with standard premium features like a heads-up display.

While European customers have had fun going on road trips and camping for a year, Volkswagen has been slow to bring the retro-inspired microbus stateside. Last summer, the automaker confirmed the larger, long wheelbase version of the ID Buzz is bound for the US, with a large 91kWh battery and 20-inch wheels standard.

If you opt for the First Edition, you get some of the Pro S Plus options standard, including an electrochromic panoramic glass roof that switches from transparent to opaque, roof rail crossbars, and a bench seat that allows for seven passengers (only for RWD).

Meanwhile, the lower-tier Pro S still gets the standard tech of the upper models like the 12.9-inch infotainment, digital gauge cluster, color ambient lighting, wireless phone charging, and IQ Drive advanced driver assistant.

In an email to The Verge, Volkswagen spokesperson Mark Gillies writes that US ID Buzz pricing will be announced closer to launch in the fourth quarter of this year. Volkswagen has yet to provide EPA range estimates, but the 91kWh battery could offer as much as 310 miles on a single charge.
