Milton Keynes, UK – The Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles all-new Caddy has been crowned Compact High Cube Van of the Year in the Great British Fleet Awards, while the Transporter was highly commended in the Medium Van of the Year category.
Despite fierce competition, the fifth-generation Caddy has scooped the award for Compact High-Cube Van of the Year. Launched in 2020, the compact van was praised for its state-of-the-art technology, comfort, and reliability.
The Volkswagen Transporter 6.1 was also honoured at the awards as it was highly commended in the Medium Van of the Year category. The judges recommended the model for its refreshed design and cutting-edge connectivity.
The annual Van Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards highlight the leading fleet managers, suppliers and manufacturers in the UK, and were presented virtually this year to an audience of industry and business leaders.
The expert judging panel is made up of Fleet World’s editors, all of whom boast decades of invaluable experience and industry knowledge used to decide the winners in each category.
John Kendall, Editor of Van Fleet World commented: “Caddy has helped to set the standard in the Compact High Cube van segment and the latest fifth generation model looks set to continue the trend. It’s larger and easier to load. Engines are tried and tested familiar diesels with petrol and hybrid variants to follow. Buyers will have a choice of analogue or digital instruments to suit a variety of users and the tablet-like touchscreen is intuitive to use. On the road, it’s as smooth and comfortable to drive as you would expect from a Caddy. In short the Caddy is an impressive all-rounder and looks set to win new fleet customers in its first year on sale.”
The fifth-generation Caddy, which has been redesigned from the ground up, offers increased space, efficient engine options, additional driver assistance systems to improve safety, and a new connected Digital Cockpit and infotainment system. The new Caddy is open for order, with retail customers receiving free option upgrades on orders placed before March 31 and a deposit contribution of up to £2,400, 2.9% APR Representative*.
Claire English, Head of Fleet at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “We are delighted that just as it is launched, our all-new Caddy has won this distinguished award, and that the Transporter 6.1 has also been recognised in its category. This early affirmation for our new model will no doubt give fleet customers, large and small, great confidence in its qualities.”
