ID.3 and Golf take away prestigious fleet-focused awards!

Go Back

Both vehicles received impressive accolades at two separate ceremonies

Auto Express names ID.3 its Best Small Company Car' praising, in particular, the model's low running costs and a long list of talents.

Fleet News annual awards recognised the Golf as 'Best Lower Medium Car title', and the ID.3 was also highly commended in the same category. Both of these models received these awards for their fleet customer appeal, judged against the stiff competition by expert panels of judges.

"The company car class is changing fast, and no firm has reacted faster to the upheaval than Volkswagen. Not that long ago diesel dominated this sector, but with Benefit-in-Kind bills now favouring the lowest-emissions vehicles, in particular, EVs, drivers and fleet managers have been clamouring to make the switch to electric power - and few cars make more sense in the corporate car park than the ID.3.", said Steve Fowler, Editorial Director at Auto Express.

On the same night at the Fleet News Awards 2021, the Golf took home the 'Best Lower Medium Car' title fighting off tough competition from across the industry. The ID.3 was also praised by Fleet News in this same area. In other categories, the ID.4 was highly commended in the 'Zero Emission Car' group, alongside the Passat which was also highly commended for the 'Best Upper Medium Car'.

Since the ID.3s world premiere in 2019, it is the first of Volkswagen's all-electric ID. range has received a total of 11 awards. The ID.3 has drawn acclaim from all over the media for its breadth of appeal, with a variety of battery options and trim levels that attract a wide band of customers. 

Nick O'Neill, Head of Fleet at Volkswagen UK said: "This is another great accolade for the ID.3, and the first fleet-focused award to its name. It's fantastic that the model is getting recognition in the company car arena - and confirms the Volkswagen Fleet team's belief that the ID.3 is the most compelling model in its ultra-competitive segment. The Golf's fleet is also undeniable, as its latest award shows, and seeing the Golf and ID.3 take home the top prize plus the Highly Commended title respectively, is all the more satisfying.

2021 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the brand, and we can't wait to see how exciting upcoming models - internal combustion-engined, plug-in hybrid, and electric - and innovations are received by the media and our fleet customers across the second half of the year."
