Volkswagen Truck & Bus – less, you don’t want; more, you don’t need

High quality, advanced technology, and the tailor-made requirements for demanding areas – these features are combined in commercial vehicles from Volkswagen Truck & Bus.

Its light, medium, and heavy trucks for long-haul and distribution transportation, as well as its urban, intercity, and touring buses, are tailored to markets like Latin America, Africa, Middle East and Asia.

Volkswagen Truck & Bus also offers after-sales services and digital solutions, which are likewise perfectly designed for growth markets.
