My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Volkswagen releases the first skeches for the new designed Crafter Commercial Vehicle.
Functional: new exterior and interior design
Best in Class: lowest drag coefficient in its class
Optimum workplace space
The first sketches of the new Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Crafter, which is due to be launched this autumn, have been revealed today. Clearly displaying Volkswagen’s design DNA and conceived as the ‘big brother’ of the T-series, the all-new Crafter promises innovation, plus a high level of functionality and quality.
The new Crafter is a completely new vehicle. Experts at Volkswagen Commercial vehicles have worked closely with current customers, frequently accompanying them during their daily routines, to explore their needs and find out their visions of what they wanted the new Crafter to be, allowing them to help shape the new generation.
This is now reflected in both the function and design: the approach, according to Albert-Johann Kirzinger, Head of Design at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles (VWN), was thoroughly analytical: "In the commercial vehicle sector especially, design has got to work for lots of different customer groups."
At 0.33, the new Crafter has a best in class drag coefficient; and inside it combines great everyday practicality with optimum cargo space. The new design language shown on the Crafter will continue across all new commercial vehicle derivatives and models.
Kirzinger adds: “Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles' T-series, the 'Bulli', is effectively being given a 'big brother' through the introduction of the new Crafter. With the Crafter, a level of surface quality, robustness and at the same time high qualitative value are achieved that have never before been available in this commercial vehicle class.”
