Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles looks forward to 2019

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has announced its 191 offers, the best and most comprehensive offers available in the market for Irish businesses.

The new and improved offers coincide with a strong 2018 thus far with a growth of 14% year on year (until end of September).

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will introduce a series of offers which includes; a contribution of up to €4,000 towards a 191 order, a market leading HP rate of 1.9%, Ireland’s only Commercial Vehicle PCP solution and now their own leasing offer from €209 per month with no deposit.

On the back of customer feedback, the brand will also offer market leading HP rates including 1.9% over 5 years, the first time a brand in Ireland has offered this length of repayments on such a low HP rate.

On top of having the most competitive commercial vehicle range offer in Ireland, the brand has also focused on providing the best solutions. This has been done by market leading HP and PCP rates and also the addition of the brand-new leasing product provided by Volkswagen Financial Services Ireland.

2018 has seen the brand increase both in volume and market share and exceed the market growth year on year. Overall growth has been delivered by all models however the stand out result is the Crafter, the fastest growing model in the light commercial vehicle market in Ireland, with 60% growth year on year.

2019 is a very exciting year for the brand and will see the introduction of the all new Grand California which will arrive in Spring 2019 and will start from €55,000. This new model will further enrich the world of globetrotters with one of the most advanced motorhomes of our time.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is using this model to extend the California programme upwards, tapping into a new range of possibilities. Later in 2019, the brand will launch new electric vehicles in the form of the ABT e-Caddy with a range of approximately 220 kilometres and the ABT e-Transporter with scalable designs and a range between 208 and 400 kilometres.

Focusing on the aftersales area of the business, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles saw continued growth in turnover and customer satisfaction levels. This growth has been brought about by customer offers such as major servicing offered at €259, all service and repairs are covered by a 2-year unlimited mileage guarantee.

Also, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles offer an Economy Parts range which are a cost-effective solution for older Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

Commenting on 2019, Alan Bateson, Managing Director at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles said: “We have looked at our successes in 2018 and want to continue this into 2019 and beyond. To do this we involved our customers and asked them what we could do to further develop. With that in mind our 1.9% HP which is currently the best HP offer in the Irish market has been extended out to 5 years or 60 months in order to make our market leading products more affordable than ever. With Ireland’s only commercial vehicle PCP and Ireland’s only commercial vehicle lease offer provided by our own bank, our mission is to ensure we give Irish customers the best solution for their needs.

When we look at next year we expect further growth, especially in Crafter, a new model and International Van of the Year winner that has grown hugely in 2018. We also welcome our new Grand California in 2019 with orders already being placed and our new electric solutions in Caddy and Transporter which offer a range up to 400 kilometres.”
