Apart from the custom interior, Mastervolt and Bösenberg
were asked to make use of one of the new Crafter’s most
interesting features – the ability to have the electrical and
other systems monitored and controlled from the vehicle’s
dashboard and/or via a smartphone app. To facilitate this,
the two companies designed the first ever integration of a
Mastervolt electrical system with a vehicle’s own CANbus
system. The resulting system sets a new standard in its
class in terms of interior layout, in-vehicle automation and
ease of use.
For Mastervolt, this development is a crucial step in our
mission to be the market leader in autonomous power
systems that offer unprecedented ease of use. With
electrification and smart connectivity being two of the
main trends in the professional automotive market, this
extraordinary partnership with Bösenberg and Volkswagen
Commercial Vehicles sets the tone for other upcoming
Absolutely fail-safe components and straightforward
communication in all circumstances.
