2022 Knaus Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation

The new, 2022 Knaus Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation on MAN TGE now available at Davan.

Knaus will be unveiling the new, 2022 Knaus Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation at the 2022 NEC Motorhome & Caravan Show in February. Davan Caravans & Motorhomes of Weston-super-Mare, can happily announce to all UK customers that they will have them in-stock soon and available to order now!

KNAUS and MAN have already developed a very successful partnership, as demonstrated in the popular VAN TI Plus and VAN TI 640 MEG Vansation models. Demand for these superb motorhomes remains high and being built on the MAN TGE these vehicles are sporty, dynamic and fitted with the very latest driver assistance technology. Also built on the MAN TGE, the new 2022 Knaus Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation builds on this success.

Innovative use of interior space

These new, semi-integrated motorhomes, featuring a very practical lift bed, incorporate many Knaus innovations, including the FoldXPand rear which increases the interior length dimensions while keeping a compact exterior. In this latest model, Knaus have positioned the furniture at an angle and together with the wave-shaped roof, makes brilliant use of the available space. The 2022 Knaus Van Wave also delivers amazing driving comfort with maximum driving safety, achieved by the dual-channel air suspension on the rear axle with compressor.

Knaus have also managed to create 190cm of headroom below the lift bed  in the new 2022 Knaus Van Wave (just a little under the 196cm elsewhere), together with the largest ‘VAN’ seating group by means of a side seat and comfortable 195cm and 201cm single beds. The seating can also be extended to create a relaxing sunbathing area.

The 2022 Knaus Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation on MAN TGE also has many other highlights, such as:

A great drive

The standard Knaus Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation with front-wheel drive, 140hp with 6-speed manual transmission can also be ordered with 177hp and 8-speed automatic transmission. Due to the low gear ratio, the automatic transmission delivers a positive effect on fuel consumption together with superb driving dynamics. The 3,500kg total permissible weight of the Vansation can also be increased to 3,850kg or 4,000kg as an option. The number of seats allowed in the Vansation’s drive mode has been reduced from four to three or two, which therefore increases its load capacity or provides greater space for your kit.

Options and Packages

The Knaus Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation has an array of optional extras and packages, which can be added on request, including:

  • Alarm system
  • Gas sensor
  • Velocate GPS tracker,
  • Lithium-ion battery
  • A battery master switch that switches off all the vehicle’s electrical consumption, which eliminates discharging the battery with standby power
  • TVT body (top value technology), for greater vehicle durability with moisture-resistant polyurethane plastic strips to prevent rot and providing better body stability while maintaining both weight and insulation properties.

There is also a ‘Winter Package’ providing a heated windscreen with thermal insulation glazing, heated front washer jets, floor heating and heated driver’s cab seats.

Driver assistance technology is also available within the ‘Light & Visibility’ package. This provides high-beam assistance, fog lights incl. turning lights, LED headlights with LED daytime driving lights, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and automatic headlights (reacting in darkness and rain).

Knaus are also providing an ‘Energy Basic’ package that includes a touch-control panel, which creates a user-friendly operating concept of interlinked components. This includes indoor and outdoor temperature sensors (instead of the standard control panel) plus there’s an intelligent charger delivering 25A charging power. There is also an ‘Energy Plus’ package to include an additional on-board battery together with a battery sensor for the body battery.

Additional highlights of the 2022 Knaus Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation

As a result of innovative assistance systems provided by MAN you will always feel safe and secure. The Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation also comes with an array of technological advancements fitted as standard:

  • Cruise control and speed limiter
  • Hill start assistance,
  • Electronic immobiliser
  • Drowsiness detection
  • ABS
  • Emergency brake assistance
  • Start-and-stop system with brake energy regeneration

  • Knaus CATEYE evolution tail-light

Additional MAN assistance systems can also be ordered as optional extras, such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with speed limiter, Lane Departure Warning and Traffic Sign Recognition.

Another highlight of the Van Wave 640 MEG Vansation comes in the form of the multifunctional display ‘Plus’ with monochrome TFT display. You can clearly see valuable driving information, such as outside temperature, remaining range, average consumption, assistance systems and vehicle functions.

Then there’s the “MAN Media Van Business Navigation”, which is just so much more than a navigation system. Additional to the navigation function (which comes with a two-year license) you’ll be able to obtain live traffic reports and access regular MAN map updates. The 8″ TFT colour display with touchscreen and proximity sensor technology incorporates two additional speakers, an AUX-IN interface, USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, wireless MAN SmartLink (to connect smartphone to WiFi) and voice control.

Inside this exceptional motorhome are original MAN cab seats which are height-adjustable and rotatable and come with fitted, high-quality seat covers in the Knaus Wohnwelt design. Both the front and side windows can easily be darkened with the ‘exclusive’ cab-darkening system. There is also the practical Knaus ServiceBox, which provides convenient access to the motorhome’s important supply elements via the flap in the side – the drain taps for both fresh and waste water tanks, fresh water tank filling opening and the water filtering system.

The gas box is also just as easily accessible via a separate service door located in the side wall. The gas cylinders are arranged longitudinally, making them that much easier to change individually.
