It could be an import,maybe some Hotel/MNC might have imported it. What kind of number plates did it have? Private/Commercial/Embassy/Test car.

Is VW gearing up to launch this as well?

Hope we don't have any branded caravan in India, apart form the custom made ones.

I saw a similar van with Transporter or something written behind. It was used by a hotel. Is it the same?
