Argo AI and Volkswagen's ID. BUZZ self-driving test vehicle

As Munich gears up to host its very first IAA Mobility conference, Argo AI and its partners at Volkswagen are ramping up testing and development of the all-electric ID. BUZZ AD (Autonomous Driving) in preparation for the launch of autonomous services in Germany and beyond.

At this year’s IAA, Argo and VW will debut the first-generation model of the ID.
