Volkswagen e-Crafter practicality & load space

The Volkswagen e-Crafter has exactly the same cargo capacity as the diesel Crafter

Overall rating

3.5 out of 5

Practicality & load space rating

4.0 out of 5

Unlike some electric vans, the latest Volkswagen Crafter was designed from the outset to accept both diesel and electric powertrains, so there's no sacrifice in the carrying capacity of the e-Crafter compared to the conventional model. The load space measures 10.7 cubic metres – big enough for four Euro pallets.

Volkswagen e-Crafter interior space, storage and comfort

Up front, the e-Crafter is as spacious and comfortable as the standard Crafter, with plenty of storage spaces in the doors and dashboard for the day-to-day clutter of working life. The only difference from the standard Crafter is a tell-tale electric range indicator in place of the rev counter in the dashboard.

Load space

Volkswagen is initially offering the e-Crafter in two different variants, both with a high roof and standard body length. The 3.5-tonne version has a payload of 975kg, while the 4.25-tonne variant – a version which standard car licence holders can still drive – can carry a payload of 1.72 tonnes.
