Volkswagen Caravelle

From a mini-bus to a shuttle

If you’re talking about professional personal transport, most people will think of one name: the Caravelle 6.1. Over the past 30 years, it has become almost synonymous for the perfect shuttle bus. Its core expertise? Comfort and flexibility. Its unique skills? Smart digital services and cutting-edge infotainment. And at the end of the working day? It is often known to transform from an executive vehicle into your personal family mini-bus.

Space for plenty of guests – and all your needs

Your passengers can be very diverse, and the same goes for their individual needs. Four suitcases for a weekend away? A last-minute replacement for an overbooked trade fair hotel? No matter how surprising their needs may be: the Caravelle 6.1 will never bat an eyelid. The modular seat mounting system with a folding 3-seater bench enables you to create more luggage space at any time. And the back rests can be folded forwards to create a flat surface.

Safety is our priority

We understand that safety is on the forefront of your mind, given the number of passengers that the Caravelle can accommodate. As a result, we’ve built many clever safety features into our people mover.

The Caravelle 6.1 features an electromechanical steering system as standard, enabling a range of intelligent driver assistance systems including Crosswind Assist and Lane Assist, which detects road markings to keep the vehicle in its lane. Park Assist simplifies manoeuvring into and out of tight spaces by steering automatically, leaving the driver to operate the pedals.

Time for a break

The Caravelle includes Driver Fatigue Detection, a system that evaluates steering movements and other independent signals. If fatigue is detected, the driver is warned with an alarm and a signal is shown on the console display to recommend a break.

Direct-shift gearbox (DSG)

Reading the signs

Multi-Collision Brake detects potential collisions using the airbag sensors. If a collision is detected, the system will apply the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are activated.

The Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) is designed to provide a standardised measurement and enables the consumer to make reliable comparisons between vehicles in terms of energy (fuel and/or electricity) consumption, emissions, and electric vehicle range. However, it should be noted that the results of this test may not accurately reflect the actual fuel consumption, emissions, or range that a driver might experience in the real world. Actual results may vary depending on various factors such as driving style, road conditions, temperature, weather, vehicle load, and maintenance. Therefore, the WLTP results should be considered as an indicator of the vehicle's performance and not as a guarantee of the actual energy consumption, emissions, or range that a driver will experience in real-world driving conditions, or for making a vehicle-to-vehicle comparison. All WLTP test values are provided in accordance with New Zealand Land transport Rule: Vehicle Efficiency and Emissions Data 2022.
