Household appliance firm Miele has become the first business to add a fully-customised version of Volkswagen’s ID. Buzz Cargo electric van to its fleet.

Five vans have been delivered to Miele fleets across Europe, including one to Miele GB, with features including a custom shelving system, and a centre console with integrated folding table.

The customisation is said to have been part of a development process between Miele, converter Wurth, and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

Miele GB fleet manager Mandy Vanstone said: “As part of Miele’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, we are excited to welcome the new fully-customised Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo vans to our fleet of over 2,700 service vehicles worldwide.

“We are right at the start of this journey, but it is something we are very passionate about. Over the coming years, we intend to purchase many more fully-electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles.”

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles national fleet manager Craig Cavanagh said: “With ULEZs expanding and the push to meet strict net zero targets by 2050, there is a growing urgency to reduce on-road emissions when delivering products and services.

“We’re delighted Miele has selected Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles once again and we can embark on the next exciting step in this long-standing partnership together.”
