THIS MEANS BUSINESS: NEW SPEC PACKS BOOST VALUE FOR VOLKSWAGEN COMMERCIAL VEHICLES CUSTOMERS

Mar 21, 2018

  • New business packs set to debut at CV Show 2018
  • Specification packs add value to models at a competitive price
  • Available on Caddy, Transporter and Crafter panel van models
  • Can be ordered now, first deliveries from May

A range of new high value specification packs, tailored to suit the needs of businesses large and small, are now available to order from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, ahead of their UK debut at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham from 24-26 April, and deliveries to customers from May.

Business packs, which can be applied to Caddy panel van and kombi, Transporter panel van and Crafter panel van and chassis cab models, add items of specification which business customers most frequently specify, at a competitive combined price. Not only has Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles worked with customers to establish what they need on their vans, it’s also collaborated with influencers, resulting in a residual value uplift of up to £450 on models with business packs.

Caddy: The Caddy business pack can be added to the Startline model for £950 (basic RRP ex VAT) and adds an alarm, rear parking sensors and air conditioning (saving £520 if you were to add these options individually). This is on top of an already generous spec which includes front assist including city emergency braking, a five-inch colour touchscreen infotainment module, leather multi-function steering wheel and electric windows with electrically heated and adjustable wing mirrors. Prices for the standard Startline start at £14,155 (basic RRP ex VAT). Two petrol and two diesel engines are available.

Transporter: Volkswagen’s best-selling van is also available with a business pack on Startline models for £975 (saving £510 if you were to add these options individually). In this case, an alarm, rear parking sensors and air conditioning are also added, and are joined by a bulkhead. Prices for the Transporter Startline are from £19,870 (basic RRP ex VAT).

Crafter: A business pack with alarm, front and rear parking sensors and air conditioning can be added to Startline and Trendline Crafter panel vans for £1,250. In addition the pack for the Crafter adds two remote folding keys with the alarm and an overhead storage compartment in the cab to store documents and other items (saving £1,320 if you were to add these items individually). Prices for the Crafter start at £24,640 (basic RRP ex VAT).

The addition of the business packs is another example of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles bringing its Working With You promise to life, demonstrating the ways in which it partners with customers and Van Centres to become the manufacturer of choice for commercial vehicle operators.

About Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles

Over 60 years ago, the first Transporter arrived in the UK, creating a blueprint which others would follow: a van which gets the job done efficiently and reliably. Today, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles offers a diverse model range – from the compact Caddy, through the evergreen Transporter and sturdy Crafter panel vans, dropsides and tippers, to the Caravelle passenger carrier, California camper and the Amarok pick-up. The vehicles are as versatile and dependable as Volkswagens have always been, but now they’re more spacious, more comfortable and safer than ever.

Every van also comes backed by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ ‘Working With You’ promise. It’s a commitment to work in partnership with businesses, providing them with the best products and aftersales support, whether they’re buying one or a thousand vans.
