Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles launches ID. Buzz concepts – FleetPoint

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles launched a range of near-production, new ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo concept vehicles at IAA Transportation 2022 last week, highlighting the versatility of the all-electric van.

The selection of ID. Buzz world premieres, which included a refrigerated variant and a paramedic conversion, were joined in Hanover by a range of more than 30 new models, including a taxi version of the Multivan and mobile e-bike workshop Crafter conversion.

ID. Buzz Flex-Cab concept
Dutch specialists, Snoeks, has fitted out an ID. Buzz Cargo ready for passenger transport use. With five seats, the Flex-Cab concept turns the ID. Buzz Cargo into an electric version of the Caravelle. It features an electrically adjustable and configurable three-person bench seat in the rear. The air conditioning system can be adapted depending on whether there are passengers or goods in the rear, with the Flex-Cab suitable for use as a shuttle, taxi, community minibus or trades.

ID. Buzz paramedic’s vehicle
A near-production concept vehicle, produced by Bösenberg, converts the ID.Buzz into a paramedic van. There is room for three people, with the cargo space designed for use as a doctor’s workspace and storage for medical equipment. The concept has been achieved using a clever modular system that requires minimal changes to the base vehicle. The paramedic signals are also incorporated and run from a separate battery system.

ID. Buzz Cargo with box body
A box superstructure has been added to the iconic ID. Buzz design by Veth Automotive, increasing the load capacity from 3.9m3 to 6.0m3 and enabling a payload of 680kg. The sides and back of the box can be fitted with conventional doors, sliding doors, or roll-up shutters, giving couriers flexibility in accessing packages. The inside of the box features a hard-wearing, non-slip floor.

ID. Buzz Cargo refrigerated vehicle
The ID. Buzz Cargo is cooler than ever with the refrigerated conversion by Wükaro. Designed specifically for last mile deliveries, the concept combines electric drive with an electric cooling system. The cooling system comprises a low-profile 230V cooling unit on the roof, with a flat ceiling evaporator, four lithium-ion batteries and an inverter. The batteries are housed within the wheel arches to save space and together supply up to eight hours of charge. The van can be pre-chilled when the ID. Buzz Cargo is connected to the mains. With a payload of 390kg, it is perfect for frozen food deliveries, restaurant takeaways or as an ice cream van.

ID. Buzz Cargo as Miele ServiceVan
The final concept, with striking “paprika red” paintwork, is a collaboration between CS/Würth and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and created for Miele. The cargo space has been fitted out with a unique shelving system tailored to service technicians’ specifications for storing materials, spare parts and tools for the Miele customer service personnel. A centre console with integrated folding table serves as a workplace for the driver in the passenger compartment.

Commercial Vehicle Group Inc. (CVG) Resumes Operations in Shanghai, China, After COVID Interruption – GlobeNewswire

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CVG announced on Thursday that it has restarted operations at its Shanghai plant in China. In March, the company became one of thousands of manufacturers in the region that were forced to halt production as the result of restrictions aimed at stemming the spread of COVID-19. 

Production at the Shanghai plant resumed on May 20 at 50% capacity under a “closed-loop” system — where employees must receive a negative COVID test and then live on-site within the factory — to minimize the risk of spreading the virus within the city.

CVG plans to continue ramping up production over the next few weeks in accordance with the local lifting of restrictions, led by Deputy Mayor of Shanghai Zong Ming, who has stated that the city hopes to fully open in June.

The shutdown in March had immediate impact on CVG’s OE seating customers in Asia and abroad, who were either facing similar manufacturing restrictions or unable to ship and receive products due to congestion in Shanghai’s port, which is the largest port in the world. CVG responded quickly, moving to air shipping to limit supply chain disruptions for its customers. The company was recently able to reinstate ocean freight through both the Shanghai and Ningbo ports.

“We may not have control over this pandemic or the delays in production it causes, but we can adapt quickly and create alternate solutions to mitigate the impacts,” said CVG President and CEO Harold Bevis. “We’ve had our customers’ needs front-of-mind in every decision we’ve made — from providing alternate means of shipping to working closely with some of our top customers to mirror production in our Thailand and Mexico operations in order to provide alternate supply.”

CVG’s local seat production in Asia includes the manufacturing of medium- and heavy-duty seating solutions for some of the region’s largest vehicle manufacturers and represents an $80 million accretive business for the company. Globally, seat-part supply from Shanghai impacts $170 million worth of production for the company within the U.S., Mexico, UK, Thailand and Australia.

In combination with the war in Ukraine which immediately impacted production at the company’s facility in L’viv, CVG faced first-quarter interruptions that have continued into the second quarter. CVG is actively resolving these setbacks and expects second-half operations to be back to pre-war, pre-COVID status, barring any new unforeseen events.

About CVG

At CVG, we deliver real solutions to complex design, engineering and manufacturing problems across a range of global industries by innovating, constantly adding value, and treating our customer’s bottom line as if it were our own.

CVSA Releases 2022 International Roadcheck Results – Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance

Over the three days of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck commercial motor vehicle inspection and enforcement initiative, CVSA-certified inspectors conducted 59,026 inspections and placed 12,456 commercial motor vehicles and 3,714 commercial motor vehicle drivers out of service.

A commercial motor vehicle is placed out of service when an inspector finds critical vehicle inspection item out-of-service violations, which are outlined in CVSA’s North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria, during a roadside inspection. Being placed out of service means the driver or vehicle is prohibited from operation for a specified period of time or until the violation is corrected.

This year, inspectors in Canada and the U.S. conducted 36,555 Level I Inspections and inspectors in Mexico conducted 1,150 Level V Inspections, for a combined total of 37,705 Level I and V Inspections. They placed 8,718 vehicles out of service, which is a 23.1% vehicle out-of-service rate for North America. Out of the 48,966 Level I and II Inspections conducted in Canada and the U.S., 11,181 vehicles were placed out of service, which is a 22.8% vehicle out-of-service rate, and 3,118 drivers were placed out of service, which is a 6.4% driver out-of-service rate.

That also means that 77.2% of the vehicles and 93.6% of the drivers inspected did not have out-of-service violations. Vehicles that do not have any critical vehicle inspection item violations, after a Level I or V Inspection, are eligible to receive a CVSA decal. The CVSA decal, valid for up to three consecutive months after inspection, is a visual indicator that signals to inspectors that the vehicle has “passed inspection.” Inspectors distributed 14,200 CVSA decals, which were placed on 10,135 power units, 3,876 trailers and 189 motorcoaches.

All Inspection Levels

On May 17-19, inspectors conducted a total of 58,287 North American Standard Inspections, which consisted of:

  • 36,555 Level I Inspections – This 37-step process checks the driver’s operating credentials and requirements and the vehicle’s mechanical fitness and regulatory compliance.
  • 12,411 Level II Inspections – This inspection involves reviewing the driver’s operating credentials and requirements and includes only vehicle inspection items that can be inspected without the inspector physically getting under the vehicle.
  • 8,171 Level III Inspections – This is the driver credentials and operating requirements inspection.
  • 1,150 Level V Inspections – This inspection involves vehicle inspection items and may be conducted without a driver present, at any location.

Level I Inspections

During International Roadcheck, inspectors in Canada and the U.S. primarily conduct the Level I Inspection, which is a comprehensive 37-step inspection process that involves thorough inspection of the vehicle (including underneath the vehicle) and the driver’s operating credentials.

  • Of the 36,555 Level I Inspections conducted in Canada and the U.S., 23.7% of the vehicles inspected (8,672) were placed out of service and 6.1% (2,242) of drivers were placed out of service.
  • In the U.S., of the 33,196 Level I Inspections were conducted, 7,912 commercial motor vehicles (23.8%) and 2,051 drivers (6.2%) were placed out of service.
  • In Canada, of the 3,359 Level I Inspections were conducted, 760 commercial motor vehicles (22.6%) and 191 (5.7%) drivers were placed out of service.

Level V Inspections

For International Roadcheck, inspectors in Mexico conducted 1,150 Level V Inspections. The Level V Inspection includes each of the vehicle inspection items specified under the North American Standard Level I Inspection and may be conducted without a driver present, at any location. Thirty-six commercial motor vehicles were placed out of service, which is a 3.1% out-of-service rate.

Motorcoaches, Buses, Passenger Vans and Other Passenger-Carrying Vehicles

During this year’s International Roadcheck, inspectors completed 206 Level I motorcoaches/bus inspections where 13 drivers (6.3%) and 21 commercial motor vehicles (10.2%) were placed out of service. During a Level I Inspection of buses, motorcoaches, passenger vans or other passenger-carrying vehicles, in addition to inspecting the vehicle’s components and the driver’s operating credentials, inspectors also inspect emergency exits, seating, and electrical cables and systems in engine and battery compartments.

Seatbelt Usage

Last year, there were more than 50,000 “failure to use a seatbelt while operating a commercial motor vehicle” driver violations, according to the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Motor Carrier Management Information System. It was the fourth most-cited driver violation in 2021, accounting for 4.99% of the total number of driver violations. During the three days of International Roadcheck, inspectors checked safety belt usage during inspections and identified 472 seatbelt violations.

Since its inception in 1988, more than 1.8 million roadside inspections have been conducted during International Roadcheck campaigns. International Roadcheck is a CVSA program with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, and Mexico’s Ministry of Communications and Transportation and the National Guard.

RV, commercial vehicle parking up for a change in Saratoga – The Mercury News

Parking rules might change soon for RV and commercial vehicle owners in Saratoga.

Saratoga City Council tasked staff with reworking its local ordinance on parking commercial and recreational vehicles within city limits after the city received 10 complaints in the past two years, saying these vehicles are a safety hazard for drivers. Council didn’t set a timeline for staff to return with a reworked ordinance, intended to clarify what a violation entails.

However, in the last two years there have been no reports of accidents or collisions caused by RVs or commercial vehicles, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Capt. Rich Urena told this newspaper.

Saratoga staff said all code complaints are considered significant, especially those that threaten public safety.

The current rule states that RVs and commercial vehicles cannot be left for 72 hours or more on commercial streets, or between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on residential streets. But in most cases, leaving these vehicles parked isn’t considered a code violation because they are not wide or tall enough.

Urena said at a council meeting last week that most of the time, people will park their trailers or recreational vehicles by their homes and move them nearby to comply with the code.

“It is an issue we’ve seen frequently, where an RV is parked for a long time frame,” Urena said.

This year alone, the Sheriff’s Office received 67 parking complaints in Saratoga, though they included regular passenger vehicles and motorcycles, and Urena said he wasn’t sure how many were related to RVs or commercial vehicles.

Other towns like Los Altos, Campbell, Cupertino and Morgan Hill have updated their parking ordinances to be more restrictive.

Campbell’s ordinance requires RVs parked in residential areas to be moved at least one mile every 72 hours, which is tracked via the odometer. Owners also have to ensure the odometer is not covered or hidden.

Cupertino’s rule is that vehicles weighing more than 10,000 pounds cannot be parked in residential streets, and “truck trailers shall not park or stand upon any public street.”

Tony Gonzalez, Saratoga’s code compliance officer, said at the council meeting that Mayor Tina Walia placed the issue on the agenda after some residents reached out to her with complaints.

“I have brought this forward because lots of residents have, over the years, talked about this concern and recently there were a few people who had been reaching out to the council,” Walia said at the meeting.

Councilmember Rishi Kumar said he gets “lots of emails and comments from residents,” and he’s “never heard of this as an issue so far.”

After those 10 complaints were made, code enforcement officials with the city responded to the complaints and referred them to the Sheriff’s Department.

A Look at GM’s Grand Plans for Electric Commercial Vehicles – AutoInfluence

A Look at GM’s Grand Plans for Electric Commercial Vehicles

GM is hopping on the electric train (or truck, in this case) and wants everybody to go with them. In fact, they’ve put out a series of lively and catchy commercials as a part of their #EVerybodyIn campaign, showcasing how their plans to go electric include vehicles for everyone from ranchers to families to delivery companies. GM has been quite vocal about their dedication to being a part of the zero-emissions solution rather than being a part of the problem. So, they are dedicating an impressive amount of time, focus, and money on a new electric vehicle future. Owners and operators of businesses that rely on commercial trucks and want to build a greener future should look up “Commercial vehicle dealer near me” when they’re ready to see what GM has to offer.

They’ll have a lot to offer soon, too, according to some of their publicized plans. GM announced that they will spend $35 million more than originally planned on the rapid launch of their EVs. This push for the EV vision should be complete by 2025, says GM.

The company is making admirable sacrifices as well: they’re setting their sights on long-term sustainability over short-term profits—something other mega-companies should consider following suit on. They’ve stated that they understand it will take some time to turn a profit on their new line of electric vehicles. But, the investment will likely pay off. One big focus of GM EVs will be on technology that’s applicable across multiple types of vehicles—and even, hopefully, useful outside of the automotive industry.

First Steps

As of now, GM reports that they’ll release 30 all-new electric vehicles by 2025, the majority of which will be available in North America. The first commercial electric vehicle they released was the BrightDrop EV600. GM teamed up with another company that is prioritizing sustainability and going all-electric: FedEx.

The delivery company became the first recipient of a batch of five BrightDrop EV600s. That small group was part of the first 500 GM built. FedEx’s delivery fleet numbered over 87,000 in 2021 and a FedEx driver makes an average of 75 to 125 package deliveries per day. So, this collaboration between the two great American companies can be an important indicator to other national brands: get behind the zero-emissions plan. Next time FedEx pulls up outside of your home, you might get to see one of these spiffy new vans.

So who is next in line to receive GM’s innovative and optimized commercial vehicles? GM announced that by 2023 they will add a second electric delivery truck to their fleet, a medium-sized EV410, and they’ll provide Verizon Communications with one of the first batches. GM did not disclose the size of the order from Verizon, but one can guess it is impressive just based on Verizon’s sheer size. With a vehicle fleet of over 24,000 cars, Verizon Communications is an excellent addition to the #EVerybodyIn movement, and can widely showcase the power of going electric.

The EV410 is made for companies needing smaller vehicles that operate in spaces such as groceries and telecommunications. With grocery and parcel delivery estimated to grow by $850 billion by 2025, electric vehicles in these markets appear to be a worthy investment by GM. Whomever you get your supplies from, they might pull up in one of GM’s new electric vehicles sooner than you think.

Weighing the Costs

Those fearing GM is taking a large financial risk will likely be disproven. GM already has a long waiting list of commercial companies waiting to receive their electric commercial vehicles. GM estimates that most companies could see thousands in savings annually by switching from diesel engines to battery-powered cars. Doing something good for the planet is certainly a bonus, but several large companies are also seeing the long-term financial upside of supporting the zero-emissions vision.

Even Amazon and UPS have publicly promised to transition their vehicle fleets from diesel-engine to electric vehicles. It seems the world is behind this movement and GM is leading the way.

The Ultium Platform

The superstar behind all of the electric vehicles that GM will be releasing is the Ultium platform. You can see it in all of GM’s new commercials surrounding its EV plans. This electric vehicle platform uses flexible battery architecture that’s compatible with a large range of electric vehicles, from light-use to heavy-duty—or even commercial cars. Part of what makes the platform so efficient is that it enables a close to 50/50 weight distribution of the vehicle that sits atop it. The Ultium platform also creates a lower center of gravity, for a driving experience that is powerful yet efficient.

Here’s a bit more that we know about Ultium. An Ultium battery can go for over 300 miles on a full charge and can go from zero to 60 mph in as little as three seconds. While previous technology pertaining to electric vehicles had a reputation for lacking power, Ultium batteries break through that stereotype. An Ultium battery boasts energy ranges between 50 to over 200 kWh, and the platform accommodates front-wheel, rear-wheel, and all-wheel drive. GM developers are excited to continue building on this technology and, due to its flexible nature, that ambition seems within reach.

So with all of these plans to expand their vehicle fleets and technology behind them, where will GM dedicate production to these mass EV orders? Currently, the two major GM manufacturing plants are Factory Zero, the company’s first dedicated electric vehicle assembly plant that straddles Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan, and the Orion plant in the Orion Township of Michigan. GM will build a third electric truck factory to supplement its existing plants.
In early 2022, they announced plans to spend $7 billion on an electric battery plant in Michigan to create a long-term foundation for creating EV vehicles. The plant will create 4,000 jobs and the state of Michigan is offering GM $824 million in economic incentives to carry the project through.

Fear has struck the hearts of Americans regarding the sustainability and zero-emissions conversation: What about jobs? So much of the US job economy relies on factories that are anything but on the zero-emissions plan. Still, Americans need a paycheck. GM is demonstrating that going green doesn’t have to mean eliminating jobs. The new Michigan plant is a joint effort between GM and LG Electric and will sit on the lot of an existing plant.

GM has additional sustainable tricks up their sleeves. Alongside creating the Ultium platform, plans for new plants, and beyond, the company is doing something surprising. GM is teaming up with electric truck conversion company Lightning eMotors to take Class 3 – Class 6 medium-duty commercial vehicles (think ambulances, school buses, and delivery vans) and turn them into battery electric vehicles. Lightning eMotors will get to call itself the first GM Specialty Vehicle Manufacturer to churn out all-electric vehicles in this class.

 

A Hint of What’s to Come

These are just some of GM’s plans to continue to tailor their processes and efforts toward a greener future. Though there has long been financial trepidation around cutting back on emissions, GM is proving that there is in fact a lot to be gained by moving in that direction. Having a mega company like General Motors take the lead in the green sphere is an inspirational signal to others to do the same. With their massive spending in the EV space, new plants, and new technologies, they’re creating rather than eliminating jobs and setting the world of commercial vehicles up for a brighter future.

The question is how long it will take for businesses to update their fleets and stake their success on commercial EVs.
