This is the second time that the VW ID is electric only. brand wins the title of Car of the Year in Denmark. The first was the ID. 3 in 2021, and this time it’s the highly anticipated ID. fuss. Congratulations Tourist Office! But the Chinese MG4 chased after him…

The title Car of the Year has existed in Denmark since 1969 and it is the association of Danish motor journalists that is behind the annual award. The Danish Motorists Association (FDM) reports on the event.

From the many reviews available online, it is clear that the ID. Buzz is a buzz for a reason. It’s stylish, incredibly spacious and versatile. The model will be available from the start with the same 75 kWh battery capacity as the VW ID. 4, and as it is a much larger vehicle, that limits the range to about 415km WLTP. Later it will come with a battery of 100 kWh.

FDM engine magazine automotive technical editor, Søren W. Rasmussen, who gave the car the maximum 10 points, says:

“In a field of seven highly relevant car models, the VW ID. Buzz stands out in a rare way that everyone notices right away. It is not enough in itself to win the title, but a smart interior, good and stable driving characteristics and a very high level of safety complete the picture of a real winner.”

Like I said, there’s already a lot talk and test the ID. fuss, so I won’t repeat that here. What is interesting is that this is the 4th year in a row that a fully electric car has won the title of Car of the Year in Denmark. Last year it was Hyundai Ioniq5for that the VW ID. 3and the first year it happened, the title went to Tesla model 3.

This year the results were as follows:

1. Volkswagen ID. Buzz 119 points
2. MG 4 118 points
3. Renault Megane E-Tech 89 points
4. Nissan Ariya 86 points
5. BMW i4 66 points
6. Toyota bZ4X 65 points
7. Toyota Aygo X 57 points

6 out of 7 of them are all electric. The Toyota Aygo X is the only representative that uses liquid fuel in this lineup. It is remarkable how fast this shift has happened. Are there any bets that next year will be all-electric?
