The new Scrum Wagon’s concept is ‘a family wagon a cut
above,’ with a stylish exterior and expansive interior. Its main
features are the convenient equipment it provides to all passengers
and the numerous ways to store items. The all-new Scrum Van, with its ‘everyday
working partner’ concept, bases its appeal on accessibility—the
ease of loading and unloading items to and from the roomy cargo space
as well as its wide door aperture.
The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices range from 1,244,250
yen to 1,659,000 yen for the Scrum Wagon; from 879,900 yen to 1,165,500
yen for the Scrum Van, both including sales tax. The monthly sales
target for the Scrum Wagon and Scrum Van together is 600 units.
