Almost 60 years ago, the foundation was laid for Volkswagen’s Hanover plant, now the main production facility for the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand. Today, the Group produces commercial vehicles at its four plants in Hanover, Poznań, Września and Pacheco. Deliveries by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in the past fiscal year amounted to 500 thousand vehicles,
representing a slight increase of 0.4% on the previous year. As a leading manufacturer of light commercial vehicles, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is making fundamental, lasting changes to the way goods and services are distributed in cities in order to improve quality of life, especially in inner city areas. At the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 in Hanover, the brand presented a number
of compelling solutions for using commercial e-mobility in urban areas on a sustainable basis. The e-Crafter has now become an important component of the Hanover-based car manufacturer’s delivery range. Another two all-electric vehicles for urban traffic – the ABT e-Caddy and ABT e-Transporter – have also been added. With a top speed of 120 km/h, the ABT e-Caddy can cover approximately 200 km on a single battery charge. However, the highlight of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ presence at the IAA was the ID. BUZZ CARGO concept car. The delivery van of tomorrow is all-electric, connected and automated for urban traffic. The successor of the “Bulli” is intended to meet the need for modern, emission-free and sustainable transport of people and goods. With battery ranges of 330 to more than 550 km achieved with the new Modular Electric Drive Toolkit (MEB) and a digitalized charging system, the brand will address the future needs of its customer groups.
