The Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo has started the year by picking up its first trophy of 2024 at the Company Car & Van Awards. Judges praised the retro styling and electric range of the ID. Buzz Cargo, as it was presented with the ‘Medium Electric Van of the Year’ award. Company Car & Van, the motoring magazine for SME fleets, focuses on the ever-diversifying needs of fleet buyers and drivers, awarding only the very best in their respective fields.
Andrew Walker, Company Car & Van editor, said:
Of all the electric vans we’ve driven, the ID. Buzz Cargo will divide opinion the most. It actually comes with a very good electric range compared to the competition, but is compromised by its carrying capacity, which is lower than offered in many smaller electric vans.
This may cause a dilemma for some, but for us that’s missing the point The ID. Buzz Cargo is the first electric van that puts style over substance, prioritising the product’s classic history, to create a look that very definitely gets noticed. Volkswagen in our opinion, has created a must-have van for those who want their business or product to stand out, which is why it’s our Medium Electric Van of the Year for 2024.
Available in Commerce and Commerce Plus trim levels, both offer businesses and users comfort, practicality, advanced connectivity, and advanced driver assistance systems. Featuring a 77kWh (net capacity) lithium-ion battery, the ID. Buzz Cargo is capable of an all-electric range of up to 256 miles.
