About the car:
The previous model of the VW Crafter model was the result of cooperation between Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. However, Mercedes has cancelled the cooperation, the Germans prefer to work with Renault. Since the Crafter was built at the Mercedes plant in Bremen, Volkswagen had to consider another production location.
The new production location is found in Poland, an hour east of Poznan. There, Volkswagen has invested 800 million euros in a completely new factory where the new model is built. A new cooperation was found with MAN Trucks and the model is also marketed as MAN TGE.
In the eighties and nineties of the last century, the predecessor of the VW Crafter, the LT, was also sold as MAN. It was then called G90 (photo) and was not very popular. The lightest G90 had a GVW of 7.5 tonnes. For MAN, the arrival of the TGE means an answer to the Iveco Daily and a substantial rounding off of the delivery program.
MAN customers now have a choice for all types of vehicles from three to 60 tons.
