Over 100 Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo electric vans have been ordered by Danish company Vestas. Indeed, the electric vehicles will be used at first for service and maintenance of Vestas wind turbines in Denmark and Northern Germany.

More into details, Vestas designs, manufactures, installs, and services onshore and offshore wind turbines across the globe. The company aims to become carbon-neutral by 2030, starting from the decarbonization of its service fleet.

One hundred Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo for Vestas

“At Vestas, we have committed ourselves to becoming carbon neutral in our own operations, without the use of offsets, by 2030. To reach this goal, it is critical that we not only decarbonise our business as it operates today, but also integrate zero-carbon operations into our scalability journey. Partnerships with industry leaders such as Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles are critical to support this sustainable scalability journey, and we are proud to be collaborating to build a decarbonised service business that can grow alongside the energy transition”, said Christian Venderby, Executive Vice President, Service at Vestas.

“At Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, it is our aim to actively shape the path to sustainable mobility. This includes our own production and its supply chains, but also our partnership with leading providers of sustainable solutions from other sectors of the economy. With our vehicles and services for sustainable, climate-friendly mobility, we offer an important cornerstone for Vestas’ work. At the same time, we learn a lot about the requirements for our vehicles from the cooperation. Vestas, named the most sustainable company in the world in 2022 by Corporate Knights, is therefore an ideal partner for us”, added Carsten Intra, CEO of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
