    12V socket in rear of Kombi?

    Hi all, Searched on the forum for the answer to my question but no luck so far, hoping someone can help! Are 12v sockets fitted to the rear on a kombi as standard or dealer fit option? If so, which models & where? I ask as my 2019 Edition doesn't have one much to my disappointment.. Thanks Rob
