VW Transporter now available as chassis cab 18 February 2016

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ sixth-generation Transporter is now available to order as a chassis cab, with prices starting at £21,265 for the LWB single cab Startline 2.0TDI 140bhp Euro 5 six-speed manual.

Options include six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG transmissions, and the new chassis cab is also available to order with a dropside body direct from the factory.

It’s an interesting alternative to the Crafter chassis and dropside derivatives available through VW Commercial Vehicles’ Engineered to Go scheme.

Single- and double-cab variants are available with the new Transporter chassis cab, the latter carrying up to six passengers, while the former offers a payload capacity up to 1339 kg.

The factory specification dropside bodies offer load space of 5.2 m2 in single cab form or 4.2 m2 with the double cab variant.

The new chassis cabs also get Volkswagen’s BlueMotion technology modifications as standard – including low rolling resistance tyres, regenerative braking and Start/Stop.
