All the units of the VW Group need to be creative now to divert our attention from the ongoing Dieselgate scandal but we recognize VW Commercial Vehicles has successfully managed the feat.

That’s because they decided to tease through virtual reality their next new product – the all new generation 2017 Crafter that will be revealed later on this year. The model is on show – in a way – these days during the BAUMA show in Munich, Germany. This is one of the biggest and most important trade fairs for the construction equipment industry and it’s so massive it only comes to life once every three years. This year’s edition had Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles come up with a virtual reality display designed to offer a first preview of the new Crafter. The visitors wearing virtual reality glasses can freely check the versatility of the 2017 Crafter’s cargo space.

Technical details of the model have not been officially released yet, with VW only tipping the model would feature a solid wood loading floor and special adapters cut out of the floor covering. The automaker also said it’s going to be compatible with a host of racking and storage systems and use a versatile system for the roof to enable easy installation and removal without drill or glue usage. The all new Crafter generation will be manufactured at Volkswagen’s new assembly facility in Wrzesnia, Poland.
