German automotive company Volkswagen has launched its ID Buzz van – an update to its iconic hippie-era T1 Transporter that brings it into the electric vehicle age.

The ID Buzz boasts a similar look to the T1 that was first launched in the 1950s and became associated with the hippie movement in the 1960s and '70s. Two-tone paintwork further emphasises the likeness.
