Following a nationwide design competition run by the RSPCA, customised Crafter vans have been wrapped in the designs of young winners for the RSPCA ‘Networking Project’ vehicles.
These six new vehicles will be used to help transport animals around the country during rehoming programmes and help to continue the strong partnership between the commercial vehicle manufacturer and the animal welfare charity.
The converted short wheelbase models have been customised to transport animals and equipment safely and securely, with the van lined with waterproof material to help keep it clean and hygienic, and special ventilation has also been added so that there is fresh air continually circulating.
All are fitted with the 2.0-litre 136 PS BlueMotion diesel engines, one of the best diesel engines in VWCV range, and is paired with the six-speed manual gearbox.
These vans were displayed at the RSPCA’s ‘Big Walkies’ event in Hyde Park and whenever the vehicles are spotted out and about, the RSPCA are encouraging people to take pictures and promote these new vehicle designs.
The winning design from Kitty Wright, the youngest ever winner of the competition, was displayed and her van will be the first of the new models to be introduced into RSPCA active service.
Volkswagen’s Crafter was a superb choice for the job, thanks to the adaptable interior, excellent equipment as standard and great performance and comfort.
