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 fiscal year 2019 stood at 492 thousand units and were slightly down on the previous year (–1.6%). As a leading manufacturer of light commercial vehicles, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is making fundamental and sustainable changes to the way goods and services are distributed in cities in order to improve quality of life, especially in inner city areas.
The brand is also the Volkswagen Group’s leader in autonomous driving as well as in services such as Mobility-as-a-Service and Transport-as-a-Service. For these solutions, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles plans to develop special-purpose vehicles such as robo-taxis and robo-vans to keep the world of tomorrow moving with all its requirements for a clean, intelligent and sustainable mobility. In the reporting year, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles introduced its extensive technically redesigned bestselling van, the Multivan/Transporter 6.1. Thanks to the switch from hydraulic to electro-mechanical power steering, the Transporter now has an extended range of driver assist systems, which significantly increase safety and comfort. The new assist systems include technologies such as Lane Assist, Park Assist and Trailer Assist. In addition, the vehicle has been tailored to the requirements of the digital world: now available as an option is the third generation of the Modular Infotainment Toolkit, which enables the use of new applications and online services with an integrated SIM card. The popular Campervan California has also been upgraded. Like its predecessor, the California 6.1 is available in three equipment versions: Beach, Coast and Ocean.
