Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus enters new phase to revolutionize the transport industry

September 18 2018

Until September 27, the IAA will be the stage for big changes: Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus enters its new era in terms of developing clean technologies and connectivity to support the evolution of the transport industry. In this new phase, the automaker revolutionizes with exclusive electric vehicle concepts in synergy with the other brands of the TRATON Group.

Also, the company makes advancements in the connectivity field: the tool RIO hits Latin America in 2019 to offer digital solutions for Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus’ customers. In its ninth participation in the show, this is the first time that the automaker will share its space with other TRATON Group brands in an exclusive hall.

One of the new exponents of this company’s movement is the e-Delivery, which brings a new modular concept in vehicle building, allowing to configure different load and autonomy capabilities, and is already winning over the market. Also for the first time, it brings electric traction components developed by the TRATON Group for its powertrain.

In the same line of diversifying to meet customers’ needs, the Volksbus e-Flex unravels an innovative flexible architecture system for electrification. The secret of this exclusive solution is allying technologies that combine several recharge and fuel possibilities with a concept that goes beyond hybridization.

Another attraction that proves the synergy between the group’s brands is the Constellation 33.400, which combines the robustness of MAN’s chassis and engine and the renowned cabin of the VW Constellation family. Volkswagen’s most powerful model will stand in the show side-by-side with the Delivery Express, the lightest in VW’s family and an outcome of a R$ 1 billion investment cycle, that also showcases the ready to load concept of selling complete vehicles.

“This is a historical moment for us. At the same time that we return to our core as Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus, we keep moving forward by maintaining the sales and production of MAN vehicles, in addition to Volkswagen products, in Latin America, and pave the path towards the future with the technologies that will win over the market. With this, we provide vital support for the TRATON Group in its mission to become a global champion by bringing innovation, global footprint and profitability”, states Roberto Cortes, CEO of Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus.
