Volkswagen eCrafter Electric Van To Make UK Debut At Commercial Vehicle Show At NEC (April 24–26)

Volkswagen will be officially unveiling its new all-electric van, the eCrafter, at the upcoming Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC in Birmingham (UK).

From the press release: “The eCrafter has been tailored precisely to these typical city operations with its 100 kW power output, range of around 160 km and top speed limited to 90 kph. The eCrafter’s lithium-ion battery is completely integrated into the underbody, meaning the standard vehicle’s entire cargo volume (10.7 m3) is fully usable. A maximum payload of between 1.0 and 1.75 tonnes is available. At a CCS charging station supplying the battery can be charged to 80% in just 45 minutes. From a wallbox, charging time to 100% is around 5.5 hours.”

With regard to commercial availability of the new Volkswagen eCrafter, it should be noted that while European deliveries are expected to begin later this year, presuming that real-world trials go well, deliveries to the UK and other left-hand-drive markets aren’t expected to begin until 2020 or 2021.
