The Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles range has proved itself with fleet operators throughout 2011 and has been named as the most reliable van manufacturer in the annual Fleet News FN50 reliability survey.

The Caddy and Transporter models performed well, both being honoured among the top five van models, while the Crafter finished a respectable sixth overall.

The FN50 reliability survey is compiled from the feedback and opinions of the UK’s top 50 leasing companies, and gives an impartial and valuable account of how commercial vehicles operate and perform in the ‘real world’.

Stephen Briers, editor of Fleet News, said: ‘Van reliability is arguably more important than car reliability as vital supply chains can be disrupted through unnecessary vehicle downtime.  Volkswagen has demonstrated with its leading position as a van manufacturer, and high placing for its models, that fleet operators can choose its vehicles in confidence.’

Alex Smith, newly appointed Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles UK added: ‘We all know that vehicle reliability is even more significant for van drivers and fleet operators as their business depends on them, so this award is very important and explains why we are on track to sell more Volkswagen vans in the UK this year than ever before.

Superior reliability delivers better business, while stronger demand for used Volkswagen vans and stronger residual values reduce whole life costs, making every Volkswagen van owner a winner!’

With the versatile Caddy, Transporter and Crafter models, the award-winning Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles range offers a van to suit every need, with load volumes from 3.2 m³ up to 17.0 m³ and payloads from 681 kg up to 2,480 kg.
