Following numerous other awards, including International Van of the Year 2023, the ID Buzz Cargo continues its winning streak. Praised in this instance for its design aesthetic and driveability with “excellent range”, judges also acknowledged the extensive support available throughout Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Van Centres.

Commenting on the award, the judges at Fleet News said: “A clear winner in this category, the ID Buzz Cargo offers something new and exciting – it’s a game changer. Excellent range and driveability, it has the looks and quality to put other vans to shame and comes with the reassurance of VW’s comprehensive van network. With the capacity and payload to suit most needs, the best-in-class range and charging speed makes it more practical for a busy life on fleet.”

Nigel Button, national contract hire & leasing manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, who collected the award, said: “We are proud to receive this award presented by Fleet News which celebrates our all-electric ID. Buzz Cargo. As our most sustainable van in the commercial vehicles range, it was important to us that the much anticipated Buzz looked the part, and maintained the premium finish and strong driving experience which is synonymous with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. To see this reflected in the judges comments is fantastic.”

The ID Buzz Cargo has an overall volume of up to 3.9m3 and enough room for two euro pallets. The van is available to purchase in two trim levels, Commerce and Commerce Plus, both featuring a 77kWh battery.
