Based on market predictions this year VW commercials expects to see a year-end increase of 49 per cent on their 2013 sales figures, and it says this is spread across all fou model platforms - Caddy, Transporter, Crafter, and Amarok.
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has announced that it is reintroducing 0 per cent APR which is now extended across the entire range for orders placed before December 20 for registration in 2015.
