Volkswagen’s ID. Buzz Cargo has been crowned ‘EV Van of the Year’ at the 2023 Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards, after impressing judges with its strong all-electric powertrain and eye-catching design.

Continuing its award-winning streak, the ID. Buzz Cargo was commended by Fleet World’s experienced panel of judges for its iconic style, alongside its futuristic and refined electric driving experience.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles won further praise for its extensive range of support offered to fleet customers, which includes a dedicated network of over 60 UK Van Centres, almost 30 Authorised Repairers, and comprehensive aftercare support. 

John Kendall, Editor of Van Fleet World, said: “Volkswagen’s ID range of electric cars has established the manufacturer as a producer of dedicated electric vehicle platforms and the logical extension to this has been to include light CVs in the same process.

“The VW ID. Buzz Cargo is the first model to emerge, providing a compact to medium sized van built on an electric only platform. With a design recalling the original 1949 VW Transporter, it’s a head-turner, while the ID electric driving experience is one that is likely to please drivers. With sales through VW Commercial Vehicles, EV van fleet customers can expect the support they would hope for from a van manufacturer.”

Commenting on the award, Craig Cavanagh, National Fleet Manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “The ID. Buzz Cargo is proof that an electric van can effectively balance sustainable credentials, style, performance and practicality. We’re thrilled that the experts at Fleet World have recognised the vehicle in this way, by crowning it their ‘EV Van of the Year’.”

Available to purchase in Commerce and Commerce Plus trim levels, the ID. Buzz Cargo provides a combined all-electric range of up to 256 miles, with a battery capable of being recharged from 5 to 80 per cent in just 30 minutes*. This LCV (light commercial vehicle) combines functionality with sustainability and style, making it an attractive choice in the commercial vehicle sector.
