VOLKSWAGEN commercial vehicle activities are on a worldwide roll with a global delivery rise of 4.7 per cent.

In the first four months of the year Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles delivered 154,600 vehicles to customers worldwide.

With 41,500 vehicles, the brand's deliveries in April also exceeded the previous year's level by 5.8 per cent.

Particularly successful has been the T-Series range with 64,500 Transporter, Caravelle, Multivan and California models sold - an increase of 9.4 per cent.

The sales surge comes as the Transporter, now in its sixth generation, extended its award-winning year to claim both Best Medium Van and overall Van of the Year at this year's UK Trade Van Driver Awards.

The Transporter's handling, efficient engines and market-leading residual values helped to give it the edge over its rivals in the judges' minds.

The latest Transporter comes in a range of wheelbases, roof heights, load volumes and payload options to cater for a variety of needs within the medium van sector.

It's available as a passenger carrier, panel van or more recently chassis cab and dropside variants, the Transporter comes equipped with range of 2.0-litre engines with either manual of DSG transmissions and two- and four-wheel drive.

The Transporter also comes with a comprehensive list of safety equipment which includes Driver Alert and Automatic Post Collision Braking Systems coming as standard.

Priced from £22,281 (including VAT) the Transporter has additional safety feature options including adaptive cruise control, city emergency braking and high beam assist.
