Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has expanded the Crafter range with a raft of new model derivatives, now available to order.
Panel vans with 4Motion all-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox are now available, along with open body models in single and double cab variants.
At its launch, front-wheel drive versions with gross vehicle weights up to 3.5 tonne were available with three engines and a manual gearbox. The expansion of the range sees available gross vehicle weights now up to 5.0 tonnes.
The addition of open body models to the range opens the door to conversions via Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Recognised Converter scheme, meaning customers in the market for a Luton, dropside, tipper or other more unusual adaptation have the perfect base vehicle.
Further derivatives will continue to join the line-up in 2018, including a 122PS engine which will join the current 102, 140 and 177 PS powertrain options.
Prices for the entry-level panel van start at £24,640 (basic RRP ex VAT). The starting price for the Crafter with eight-speed automatic gearbox is £30,385, £30,590 for rear-wheel drive and £34,145 for 4Motion four-wheel drive.
