Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has supplied The AA with a further 158 vehicles after an order of 500 Transporters last year, showing the confidence the company has in the VW brand.
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is extending its working partnership with the UK’s largest motoring organisation, The AA, by supplying more than 150 new Transporter vans. The vehicles will be used as roadside and recovery vehicles that will be converted at The AA’s conversion site in Oxfordshire to offer specially-equipped warning beacons, racking and deployable recovery trolleys.
Twin batteries and a higher spec driver’s seat, among other options, have been added to each vehicle. Out of the 158 Transporters, 24 have a DSG gearbox, allowing for a smoother drive and better fuel economy.
“We couldn’t be happier to continue the fantastic relationship The AA has with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.”
CHRIS WILTSHIRE – FLEET ENGINEER, THE AA
The AA will continue to replace a proportion of its 2,200 strong fleet of breakdown vans, which are coming to the end of their operational life, with Transporters, which have proved to be dependable, right for the job and efficient.
