Caravanning Utility Vehicle (CUV) by KNAUS – BOXDRIVE FIRST EDITION
Tried‐and‐tested Volkswagen quality with many features plus the innovative power and speed of KNAUS – the result is the new CUV (Caravanning Utility Vehicle) BOXDRIVE. With the SAINT & SINNER concept based on the VW Crafter, the KNAUS brand has again demonstrated what it is capable of doing and how quickly it can accomplish it. In order to underscore the exclusivity and dimensions of the new BOXDRIVE series vehicle, it is initially only available as a FIRST EDITION. Strictly limited to 150 units – all of them developed by hand through our CUV specialists in Nagyoroszi, Hungary. In its numerous innovative driver assistance systems, the BOXDRIVE is unique in the camper van/CUV segment. In doing so, at KNAUS we create a new standard in terms of quality, safety, and comfort.

Furniture in solid cabinet construction ensures stability and soundness. Practical handling is created by the furniture hinges featuring spring reinforcements and soft‐close functions, as well as the kitchen drawers with push‐to‐open and ball bearing‐mounted full extension. The open shelves with indirect LED illumination in the kitchen are not only functional, but are also wonderfully designed. The ceiling high wardrobe with an adjustable intermediate shelves always offers sufficient storage space.
