Long-standing Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles partner and family-run tea merchant, Ringtons, has received its first all-electric ID. Buzz Cargo van, adding to its existing 250-strong Volkswagen fleet.  

Serving as part of its doorstop delivery service, the new Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo will deliver high-quality Ringtons produce to customers across the UK. The ID. Buzz Cargo is a welcome addition as the company looks to further reduce its environmental impact.

Based in north-east England, Ringtons’ luxury tea, coffee and confectionary business provides their high-quality produce to retail and wholesale customers up and down the country, including hotels, restaurants and businesses.

Stephen Killinger, Operations Manager at Ringtons, commented: “We have been looking forward to getting our hands on the ID. Buzz Cargo since it was first announced a couple of years ago. I was lucky enough to be among the first customers to get behind the wheel and aside from being really enjoyable to drive, as a carbon neutral business there are clear benefits to us in going all-electric. And is there a better electric van on the market currently? I don’t think so!”

Craig Cavanagh, National Fleet Manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “We’re delighted that our long-term partner, Ringtons, has chosen us once again, welcoming its first all-electric ID. Buzz Cargo van onto the fleet. To hear that over and above its clear sustainability credentials, the comfortable cabin and generous load space will enable Ringtons to provide the same, reliable delivery service they have become famous for is fantastic.”

Named ‘International Van of the Year 2023’, the ID. Buzz Cargo is the “workhorse” of the ID. Buzz family, available to purchase in two trim levels – Commerce and Commerce Plus – that both offer business-ready practicality, providing all-electric power with no compromise.
