The UK’s 2022 Eurovision Space Man Sam Ryder has been touring Liverpool this week in an all-electric Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo. The singer-songwriter has been appearing at iconic Liverpool music venues like the Cavern Club, for a series of warm-up gig ahead of performing his latest single ‘Mountain’ at the Grand Final tonight.

“As a musician and surfer, I have always had a soft spot for van life. We used to camp out in dad’s work van at festivals, and those shows were what inspired me to make my own music,” says Ryder.

“As a musician and surfer, I have always had a soft spot for van life,” says Sam Ryder.

“When I heard that Volkswagen had an all-electric van, inspired by the iconic Bulli camper, I jumped at the chance to drive one. It feels good to do my bit to help make Eurovision more sustainable.”

Volkswagen’s futuristic ID. Buzz Cargo is presented as a sustainable, modern mobility solution, and brings a new level of cool to the van-guard. Fitted with a 77kWh lithium-ion battery and electric motor, the ID. Buzz Cargo delivers an all-electric range of up to 256 miles. 

Along with a five-seater people-carrying version named simply the ID. Buzz, the range has won a raft of awards in the UK and across Europe since going on sale last December.
