The electric van's cabin looks fun and funky in an orange-and-white creamsicle color scheme, and there are some cool Easter eggs.
The long-awaited debut of the Volkswagen ID.Buzz electric van is just around the corner, and VW has released a few photos of the interior to whet our appetite for the full reveal. This isn't exactly the EV Microbus that we'll be getting in the U.S., as the Europe-market version will be shown first and will differ somewhat from ours, which will be a longer-wheelbase version with three rows of seats. The model pictured here appears to have just two rows of seats with space for five passengers, and there will also be cargo versions sold in Europe for commercial buyers that we won't get in the States. Finished in an orange-and-white color scheme, the interior looks fresh and fun and piques our curiosity for the various trim and upholstery customization possibilities that VW will offer. And a cheeky retro design like this wouldn't be complete without a few Easter eggs that VW has detailed; the company also claims that the van will offer a built-in bottle opener and ice scraper. We'll learn more about these features soon, as the Buzz will debut this Wednesday, March 9.

This attractive combination of orange cloth and white leather upholstery looks good, and there's contrasting orange stitching on the seats too. An "ID." logo is emblazoned on the front seats to denote this van as part of VW's electric lineup that also includes the ID.4 crossover.
This silhouette is inscribed in the black plastic found on the side of the rear seat housing; we spotted it within the larger interior photo.
A similar silhouette is found on this textured yellow plastic piece, but its location is uncertain.
This cute winking smiley face is on the inside of the door handle. VW says it wants these fun touches to only be discovered "at second glance."
