All aboard the Poland express: Parkers Vans’ new long-term Volkswagen Crafter

  • Parkers Vans has a brand new VW Crafter
  • Social media from our six-month test
  • First job: collect from the factory - in Poland

Interested in the all-new Volkswagen Crafter? Then good news – Parkers Vans is getting one of the first in the country, and will be running it as a long-term test vehicle for six months to see how it stacks up against the large van competition.

The official UK launch isn’t until the 2017 CV Show in April, so how have we got one so quickly? Simples – we’ve agree to collect it from VW’s brand new van factory in Poznan, Poland, and drive it back to Britain.

The adventure starts on Monday 13 March, and the plan is we’ll be back by Wednesday – having visited no less than 12 countries on a rather circuitous route. You can follow our journey via this page, which we’ll be populating with pictures along the way.
