We all love a trusty Volkswagen Transporter. And who doesn’t love a tippy truck? Well, a UK firm has developed a new tipper body cab chassis variant of the popular Volkswagen Transporter, uniquely combining two things we have a soft spot for.
Created and developed, in partnership with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles (UK), by Ingimex Ltd – the UK’s largest manufacturer of light commercial vehicle bodies – the tipper body conversion is available for both T30 (3000kg GVW) and T32 (3200kg GVW) versions of the Volkswagen Transporter, offering payloads of around 800kg and 1000kg, respectively.
The new custom is officially called the ‘Tip-Up’, and the busy bodies at Ingimex additionally offer dropside bodies for the Transporter.
Referred to as the ‘Pick-Up’ (pictured below), the T30- and T32-based variants boast higher payloads of around 1000kg and 1200kg, respectively.
Providing potential buyers with a more compact alternative to larger Volkswagen Crafter-based commercial vehicles, Ingimex says its Tip-Up and Pick-up Transporter conversions are also compatible with Volkswagen’s 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system, “making it a highly capable vehicle for use on- and off-road”.
Locally, 2017 Volkswagen Transporter vans kicks off at $34,490 driveaway, with two-door cab chassis models starting at $45,990 (before on-road costs).
