Revolution Campervans, which produces campers on new or used VW Transporters, has witnessed a noticeable trend in 2020 of customers buying them as somewhere to work from home and as a mobile office – then doubling as a base for camping adventures and staycations.
One customer was Chris Edge (above), the operations director of a house building company near Swansea, bought his Revolution VW camper as he wanted to get out of the house during lockdown, and said, “ I can park it on my drive or anywhere and use it as my home office. It’s got all the kit I need to use it as an office, such as USB points and a mains hook-up, plus the bonus of a fridge and cooker. It makes it really easy to work in.”
The new Stellantis group formed by the merger of PSA and FCA will build some electric models in Poland.
The new business will share platforms across model ranges and this will bring huge cost savings to what is the fourth largest car group in the world, but it might lead to big job losses by cutting overcapacity.
