  • Dynamic and likable: re-designed Caddy now based on the Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB)
  • Compact outside, enormous inside: the new Caddy Maxi offers room for up to two Euro pallets
  • Efficient and sustainable: TDI engines' nitrogen oxide emissions appreciably reduced via twin dosing
  • Digital and connected: new ‘Innovision Cockpit’ makes Caddy the smart phone of the segment
  • Safer and easier to drive: 19 new or improved driver assistance systems on the new Caddy

Hannover / Düsseldorf, 21 February 2020 – It wins plaudits as a van, family MPV, shuttle and camper with limitless versatility: the Caddy. To date over three million have been built, and now, as a world première, VWCV is revealing the progressive, fifth generation of the Caddy. Every detail from the ground up is new, as for the first time the best seller is now based on the Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB). Thanks to the MQB, new high-end technologies now find their way into the range. Innovative driver assistance systems enhance safety and make driving easier; networked infotainment and digitalised control systems turn the Caddy into a smartphone on wheels; a new twin dosing technique makes the TDI engines cleaner than ever before. The exterior has been given a completely new and strikingly sporty design. At the same time the space in the interior has also been significantly improved. The Caddy is an all-rounder, the Swiss Army knife of urban delivery vans and family MPVs.


‘Project Qatar Mobility’: Self-driving shuttles set to take Doha's local public transport to the next level in 2022

  • Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) and Volkswagen AG announce pioneering autonomous, electric transport initiative to transform urban mobility in Qatar
  • Prototypes of ID. BUZZ1 AD shuttles from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and of Scania buses to operate on a self-driving system with zero emissions
  • MOIA ride hailing app is used to run the service, AID delivers self-driving system (SDS) knowledge
  • Autonomous Driving Roadmap pulled forward

Hannover/Doha, December 14, 2019 – For the first time ever a cutting-edge fleet of self-driving Level 4 electric shuttles will usher in a new era of urban mobility in a capital city in 2022: Earlier today in Doha, representatives of Volkswagen AG and the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) signed the ‘Project Qatar Mobility’. The goal is to develop a ground-breaking autonomous transport project and transform the future of urban mobility to a sustainable and commercial deployment of AD shuttles and bus services – even beyond 2022. Fostering a cross-brand collaboration as blueprint for future Autonomous Driving (AD) solutions, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Scania, MOIA and AID-Autonomous Intelligent Driving will play an important role in this project. During the largest sporting event in the world, Qatar will thus be the venue for the world’s first emission-free, electric and autonomous public transport system.
