Volkswagen has released first pictures of the new Crafter. The heaviest van of Volkswagen will be built in a brandnew plant in Poland, just outside of Poznan. The new van will have a brother with an MAN badge, soon to be unveiled as well. This MAN will be called the TGE, and we expect this will be the version with twin tyres on the rear axle and with higher load capacities.
Officially, the new Crafter will be introduced with diesel engines, but following the VW-scandal, we expect a hybrid and a fully electric version as well, on a longer term. The new Crafter will debut at the upcoming IAA in Hanover, hometown of Volkswagen Vans.
