IN the 2017 fiscal year, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles delivered 497,900 vehicles worldwide, setting a new record. This means that the Volkswagen Group brand responsible for light commercial vehicles, people movers, motorhomes and pick-ups once again reported an increase in deliveries (+4.2 per cent). The T model range, the Caddy and the Amarok pick-up recorded a considerable rise in deliveries.
Heinz-Jürgen Löw, Member of the Brand Board of Management responsible for Sales and Marketing, said: "We would like to thank our customers for the great trust they once again placed in our products in 2017. Of course we want to continue precisely meeting their needs with our products.
"The increased delivery volume is also thanks to our efficient sales network and the motivated sales team worldwide."
He looks forward to 2018 with confidence: "The e-Crafter opens up additional opportunities in the urban delivery and service sector."
Since December 2017 the vehicle has been undergoing final real-world tests at selected large customers and it will be launched in Europe in the second half of the year.
