Volkswagen has resumed manufacturing its ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo vehicles at its Hanover plant in Germany. The production resumes after a brief pause announced in late June after Volkswagen detected quality issues with the battery packs of these electric vehicles. As the car brand estimated initially, the production halt lasted a week before it restarted on July 4, reports Automobilwoche.

The automaker claims to have identified and fixed the battery issue. It also claimed that the new battery packs that are currently being used come fully meet VWCV's quality standards. The cell modules of the impacted battery packs didn't deliver the required performance. This resulted in voltage drops, reducing the electric vehicle's driving range significantly. Also, it could negatively impact the battery's lifespan.
