Video release IAA 2018: VW Caminhões e Ônibus speeds up with electrical technologies and connectivity

VW Caminhões e Ônibus presents to visitors to IAA, the world's largest exhibition of commercial vehicles, sustainable technologies developed by Brazilian engineering. Connectivity is also present in the attractions that left the factory in Resende (RJ) for the hall in Hannover, Germany, and conquer the audience that passes through the fair, from many different parts of the world.

This is the company's ninth participation in this important event. Check out and know the attractions in the video: https://vimeo.com/291033757

e-Delivery truck and the Volksbus e-Flex are its prominent highlights. Presented as prototypes, the test phases for both have been defined, as well as the projected date for the start of serial production. The Volkswagen electric model for transporting passengers will begin circulating next year on Brazil's streets. It will enter the company's sales portfolio just six months after the e-Delivery truck, which is scheduled for serial production in 2020.

Always staying abreast of the latest developments, Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus launches RIO in Latin America to offer customers an advanced set of cloud-based digital solutions way ahead of the connectivity tools currently available in the market. Offering full integration between vehicle, fleet owner, aftersales, driver and end customer, Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus and RIO, part of TRATON Group, will provide the technology required by the modern transporter, regardless of its size or route.

Brazil will be the first market before RIO plans to expand into Mexico, Argentina and Chile. To meet the regional demands, the platform will offer exclusive services for Latin America, in addition to the global service portfolio from RIO, OEM's and third parties.
