One of these all-electric vans has been delivered to Miele GB and will be utilized as part of their customer service and aftercare fleet in the United Kingdom.
The vans feature several unique modifications, including a customized shelving system designed to meet the needs of service employees for efficient storage of materials, replacement parts, and tools. Additionally, a center console with an integrated folding table has been installed, serving as a convenient workstation for the driver.
Craig Cavanagh, the national fleet manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, expressed his satisfaction with Miele’s decision to choose Volkswagen once again. He emphasized the importance of reducing on-road emissions in line with expanding ULEZ-zones and the ambitious net zero targets set for 2050. This partnership marks another exciting milestone in their longstanding relationship.
Mandy Vanstone, fleet manager for Miele GB, highlighted their commitment to sustainability and eagerly welcomed the arrival of the customized Volkswagen ID Buzz Cargo vans to their fleet, which already consists of over 2,700 service vehicles worldwide. She further revealed their plans to procure more fully-electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles in the coming years.
Equipped with a 77kWh battery pack, the Buzz vans have an impressive range of 256 miles on a single charge, as per WLTP standards. This enhances their suitability for Miele’s operations and reinforces their dedication to embracing eco-friendly solutions.
