What Car? has launched a new vans reviews, advice and videos channel in association with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

From launch, What Car? Vans will feature 40 reviews of the latest van models, as well as 12 essential tips and advice stories, creating a one-stop-shop for all van drivers and buyers. In addition, motoring presenter, TV personality and van aficionado Edd China, will also head What Car? Vans’ video reviews.

It is estimated there are four million light commercial vehicle and pick-up drivers in the UK. You can see all the stories in our new vans channel here.

What Car? editor Steve Huntingford said: "The UK’s van sector has grown from just over two million vehicles in 1994 to more than four million last year – with owners and drivers surging as a result of the boom in online retail, a rise in self-employment and the gig-economy."

"What Car? is already known for its car reviewing expertise and consumer advice, and as sales surged so we had more van and pick-up buyers asking us to apply those same levels of insight to help them. We’re delighted to be able to do so, and excited for the future of this new section of our website.”

Sarah Cox, Head of Marketing at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “Everything we do at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is aligned to our ‘Working With You’ brand promise, and this new platform is the perfect place for van buyers to find sound advice and compare vehicles.

"Owners of SMEs work hard and face numerous challenges, but choosing their next van shouldn’t be difficult. By working in partnership with What Car? Vans we’re aiming to make the process a little easier.”
