A VW Golf model not known by most is the “Postgolf”, which was used by the German Federal Post for … well… delivering post. Today these cars are rare and expensive collectibles in Germany.
In a time without online trading, most they had to carry was letters and postcards. Those VW Golf models were poverty-spec diesel cars without rear windows, similar to “bestelwagen” in the Netherlands.
Early Mk.1 models still had rear windows, and I will allow them, as this allows for more variety of car bodies.

It is a fleet car, what else to say?
See above. The lower, the better.
You do not want to drive back to the post office to refill more often than you need.
Imagine the post uses 1000 of them… and they all go to annual service… Yep.
Just because it is a workorse it shouldnt handle like a semi truck.
The drivers spend their whole working day in it, so at least some minimal comfort would be preferred.
The minimum requirement is already a quite good score. But the more, the better.
The post would clearly prefer a well-engineered ugly car over a good looking trashcan. But the new vehicle represents the company, and so design is also something to consider.
