Commercial E vans for VW

Thu Sep 29, 2016 3:46 pm

We knew the cargo delivery van would come into play very soon. Europe has a major quest for green sustainablity and it is no surprise they concept vans will be released there first.

VW E crafter
By Stephan Edelstein
"To realize truly significant reductions in carbon emissions, powertrain electrification will have to extend beyond just passenger cars.

But electric commercial vehicles have received relatively little attention from established manufacturers.

That is seemingly about to change, at least in Europe.

At the recent IAA Commercial Vehicles trade show in Hanover, Germany, both Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen unveiled electric commercial-vehicle concepts.

The smaller of the two is set to go on sale in Europe next year.

That would be the Volkswagen e-Crafter, an all-electric version of the automaker's Crafter commercial van."

Always Europe first it's too bad North America doesn't embrace environmental stewardship as intensely as parts of Europe does
