Ahead of its official world premiere on 15 April 2015, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has revealed a sketch of the sixth-generation Transporter.
Same Transporter with new insidesWhen it made its debut in 1950, few could have predicted the enormous impact the Transporter would have on the commercial vehicle market, creating a timeless van that could be used for just about every automotive task considered.
The ethos behind the Transporter hasn’t really changed since the 50s, keeping people moving and carrying things about. The chassis is likely to stay the same as well as VW has hinted at this earlier. Obviously the interior will come in for an update including a new multimedia system and cabin.
No further details are available on the new Transporter but traditionally not much changes so there will almost certainly be a derivative of the group’s 2-Litre turbodiesel. A seven-speed DSG or manual will probably be available as well.
The sixth-generation Transporter will go on sale in Europe later this year.
