Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched a new Engineered To Go conversion for the Crafter Luton van, featuring the Palfinger V500LQ tail lift, which is now available as a model in its own right.
The new off-the-shelf model of the Crafter Luton van from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles includes the Palfinger V500LQ tail lift, which has a 500kg lifting capacity on an aluminium load platform and is operated via dual controls on both the interior and exterior.
The off-the-shelf model means that customers no longer need to option the tail lift, with the standard-fit typically increasing residual values from £600 to £1,000. The Crafter Luton tail lift conversion is built on Volkswagen's chassis cab, which allows the van to be easily and safely adapted into multiple variations, including Dropside, Tipper, and Luton. The Palfinger V500LQ tail lift provides a 500kg lifting capacity on an aluminium load platform and is operated via dual controls on both the interior and exterior.
The Volkswagen Crafter chassis cab from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles can seat up to three people in its standard configuration, or up to seven people with the double cab option, both equipped with three-point seat belts and adjustable head restraints. The chassis cab comes in Startline trim, which includes features like Bluetooth, a full-size spare wheel, a 75-litre fuel tank, and driver assistance systems like Driver Alert and Front Assist with City Emergency Braking to enhance safety.
Customers can also choose to add the optional Business Pack, which includes air conditioning and an anti-theft alarm with interior monitoring, backup horn, and towing protection, among other features, starting from £1,380 (excluding VAT).
Additionally, the Crafter Dropside, Tipper, and Luton have been completed by Volkswagen's Premium Recognised Partner, Ingimex, and are available as off-the-shelf products through the Engineered To Go programme. This programme ensures the highest build quality, a three-year warranty, and certification to the latest standards.
