The new fleet of electric vehicles will be rolled out across TPS’s network of centres, including three
CUPRA Born models into the Northern Ireland delivery fleets of TPS Ballymena – the latest TPS Centre
to open its doors – TPS Cookstown and TPS Mallusk.
TPS Coventry, TPS Gatwick, TPS Portsmouth and TPS Southampton will also receive the new electric
vehicles into their delivery fleets. They will be used by the TPS centres to carry out multiple daily
delivery runs and support the existing fleet with additional day-to-day operations.
Currently, 83 TPS centres provide genuine Volkswagen Group parts for independent workshops and
bodyshops across the UK for vehicles from the Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Audi, SEAT, CUPRA,
Škoda and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brands.
Catherine Baker, Head of Group Parts Operations, Volkswagen Group UK, said: “The addition of the
25 all-electric CUPRA Born and Volkswagen ID. Buzz models is a major boost to our strategy to
electrify the 710 TPS fleet.
“As part of our plans to accelerate our EV journey, these vehicles will help to pave the way for our
business to significantly cut its UK carbon footprint, driving the transformation of our delivery service
that will benefit both the planet and our customers.”
The latest additions to the fleet mark a significant expansion of recent pilot projects of electric
vehicles in selected TPS centres. These included pilots with the Volkswagen ID.3 and the ABT
eTransporter van in specially commissioned wraps.
The ongoing electrification of the TPS fleet is a significant milestone on the road to more sustainable
business operations, and part of the Volkswagen Group’s ongoing transformation to carbon-neutral
mobility for all.
