200,000 Crafter and MAN TGE vehicles have been produced in 39 months: at the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles plant in the Polish city of Wrzesnia. The landmark vehicle is a Crafter panel van with a 177 PS 2.0-litre TDI engine and 6-speed manual gearbox. Painted in a Deep Ocean Blue finish, the vehicle will be staying in Poland, as it is going to a small company in Zielona Góra. Since the start of production in autumn 2016, the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles plant has to date produced around 172,600 Crafter vans and, for sister Group company MAN, 27,400 Crafter-based TGE models.

Increasing numbers of customers in Poland are opting for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. During January to October 2019 over 10,700 Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles models were registered in Poland alone. That is 19 per cent more than in the corresponding period last year. In October 2019 nearly 2,800 Crafter vans were registered in Poland, also an appreciable increase of 17.6 per cent on October 2018. Crafter units shipped to customers globally totalled 56,400 from January to October 2019 alone, a year-on-year increase of 25.2 per cent.

Built in a record time of just 23 months, the factory began operating in autumn 2016. Since September 2018, the plant has been running three shifts with daily production of 420 vehicles. By October 2018, just two years after the start of production, the 100,000th vehicle, also a Crafter, had already left the line.
