Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Introduce Euro V1 Engine Technology to the Crafter Range

Volkswagen’s multi-award-winning Crafter panel van, chassis and double cab models are set to become among the cleanest and most refined vehicles in their classes with the introduction of EURO VI engines. As a result, the new Crafter Euro VI range meets the most exacting European exhaust standard for commercial vehicles

The Crafter achieves the strict limits with the help of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems, as well as a built-in Diesel Particulate Filter which works to purify exhaust emissions and almost eradicate particulate matter.

Volkswagen’s EURO VI range is offered on selected Crafter models with EU kerbweights between 2,355 kg and 2,815 kg in medium and long wheelbases. Available with Volkswagen’s 2.0-litre TDI engine with an output of either 163 PS or 114 PS, which is new to the Crafter range. Additionally, the 114 PS EURO VI engine can be specified with Volkswagen’s BlueMotion Technology, meaning customers benefit from fuel economy of up to 35.3 mpg (combined) and emissions of just 210 g/km.
