A Swiss company has converted all its light commercial vehicles to electric VW IDs. Buzz Cargo. Helion's order for 100 battery vans represents ID's largest fleet delivery to date. Buzz.
Helion is involved in the Swiss solar industry and will power its electric cars with renewable solar energy. Noah Heynen, Helion's chief executive, said converting the fleet to zero emissions would save around 300 tonnes of CO2 per year and support the company's transition to net zero energy to combat climate change. About 100 of our technicians from all over Switzerland are electric on the road and therefore, they are also ambassadors of our vision and the energy transition, he said.
Helion has set up an operational support team to test the trucks, before switching to electric power. As a result, it has invested heavily in recharging infrastructure at its branches and has funded wallboxes for technicians to charge their EVs at home. A maximum typical daily operating range of 100km means technicians should rarely need to plug into public chargers, ID. Buzz has an official WLTP range of 427 km.
