Volkswagen is further expanding its Transporter range to include a single cab and double cab variant.

Hot off the launch of the Transporter 6.1 during March 2021, VW is adding more utility-minded versions of the famous model. Soon you will be able to buy a single or double cab Transporter for under R500k. This isn’t the first time the brand is offering these models as they were offered in the previous generation as well.

The single cab offers a single engine option of the 81 kW and 250 Nm turbodiesel mated with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Both models are equipped with a long-wheelbase chassis with a maximum load capacity of 3.2 tons.

Obviously, the single cab has a bigger load bed and is said to be able to load up to 4 Euro pallets while the double cab can load 2 Euro pallets.

Dimensions for the bakkies are as follows:
