Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles launches new off-the-shelf conversions

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has revamped its Engineered To Go programme to bring new off-the-shelf conversions.

New off-the-shelf conversions offered include Tippers, Dropsides and Lutons

Launching first with the Crafter chassis cab, the new, expanded programme offers a range of Dropside, Tipper and Luton products available to buy through Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ dedicated network of Van Centres direct from the standard price list.

This will expand in the future to cover the range of Caddy, Transporter and Crafter models with numerous derivatives including fridge/freezer conversions, minibuses and a service workshop.

The first raft of new Crafter products will be produced by specialist converter Ingimex. 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 designed for versatility with the tipper functions controlled by wander lead. Meanwhile 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.

Benefits of using the scheme include a single invoice, matching vehicle/conversion warranty and peace of mind.

Nick Axtell, specialist sales manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “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. Beyond our Engineered To Go programme there is still the option to customise a van even further to suit the needs of your business with specialist and bespoke conversions.”
