Ahead of the new Volkswagen Crafter launch, Volkswagen has teased some initial details of its updated Crafter van.

The cockpit has been completely redesigned and now features the latest generation of infotainment systems.

The fresh features include the Digital Cockpit, a multifunction steering wheel, an electronic parking brake and various assist systems.

A key option is the digital voice assistant with ChatGPT integration.

Pre-sales of the new Crafter start in mid-April.

The new Crafter will come with digital instruments as standard.

A defining interior detail of the 2024 Crafter is a now 10.3-inch and optionally 12.9-inch infotainment display based on the latest modular infotainment matrix (MIB).

The visually free-standing Volkswagen system has a newly developed graphical interface and self-explanatory menu navigation.

The Crafter will also receive a new online voice control system for many vehicle functions.

This system features ChatGPT integration and responds to natural voice commands.

The handbrake and the switch for the automatic gearbox have been redesigned, as have the controls for the light functions, the buttons in the area of the centre console and all vents.

All new Crafter models will have the following systems on board as standard in future: Front Assist (Autonomous Emergency Braking including Cyclist and Pedestrian Monitoring), Lane Assist (lane keeping system), Dynamic Road Sign Display, a speed limiter and acoustic Park Distance Control for the rear area.

Travel Assist will be available as an option for the Crafter for the first time.

In combination with Travel Assist, Emergency Assist is also being introduced in the Crafter.

Full details will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
