Development fully underway: air suspension for the new Volkswagen Crafter

Placed on 28/02/2017

The new Volkswagen Crafter was presented during the last IAA Nutzfahrzeuge. In recent years, the Crafter has been made in partnership with Mercedes-Benz, however the Volkswagen Group has now decided to take development and production of the vehicle entirely under its own roof. Under their auspices, it has become a completely new vehicle that fulfils the wishes and requirements of today's tradesperson.

As you'd expect, VB-Airsuspension started on the development of a range of air suspension kits for the new Crafter well before its launch. VB-Airsuspension works closely with most major vehicle manufacturers and, as a PremiumPartner of Volkswagen, we received the specifications to develop a number of new products for this vehicle very early on. Just as with other products, the full air suspension on the rear axle of the new Crafter will become available in phases for all versions:
 

  • Front wheel drive
  • Rear wheel drive
  • All 4Motion versions
     

There will be more about the development of the air suspension kits for the Volkswagen Crafter in the next newsletter.
