The Volkswagen Crafter is a van produced by the German manufacturer Volkswagen in the 3 to 5 tons category. It’s the successor to the Volkswagen LT and, just like its predecessor, has been manufactured in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz. At Mercedes-Benz this collaboration resulted in the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The Crafter is available in a passenger edition, the Crafter Volt, as well as a van and pick-up edition, or as a chassis cab. The latter has a ladder chassis as standard, but can also be supplied with a lowered platform chassis, which offers more load capacity due to its lower weight.
