Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has announced details of its new Engineered To Go programme that offers off-the-shelf conversions to even more businesses.

Launching with a host of conversions on the Crafter model, the new programme kicks off with a range of Dropside, Tipper and Luton products available to buy direct from the standard price list.

The revamped scheme will eventually cover the range of Caddy, Transporter and Crafter models with numerous derivatives including fridge/freezer conversions, minibuses and a service workshop.

Specialist converter Ingimex will produce the first raft of Engineered To Go Crafter products, designed to the latest European design standards. The Dropside, available as a single and double cab, is modified ready for the addition of fall arrest rails or tail lifts with prices starting from £31,470 (ex VAT).

The Tipper, also in single and double cab form, starts from £33,310 (ex VAT) and is tough, safe and versatile with the tipper functions controlled by wander lead. The single cab Luton, from £36,220 (ex VAT), has a unique four-tier load restraint system for deck lashing, standard load lock lashing or for use with optional Ingimex telescopic load pole.

The Engineered To Go programme is designed to provide customers with high quality converted products through Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ dedicated network of Van Centres. The new scheme offers an easy way for customers to get the conversions that they want, plus a single invoice, matching vehicle/conversion warranty and peace of mind.

Nick Axtell, Specialist Sales Manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce the details of the new Engineered To Go programme which extends the number of conversions on offer to our customers.

“Having these van solutions available as off-the-shelf products ensures we are able to respond to the demands of businesses quickly and efficiently as part of our Working With You promise.

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. For more information visit
