The right one for everyone: the next Transporter generation completes the VW Bus trio

The right one for everyone: the next Transporter generation completes the VW Bus trio

  • Alongside the Multivan and the ID. Buzz, the new Transporter joins the most innovative range of VW Buses of all time
  • Commercial vehicle successor to the T6.1: with a payload of over a tonne, as a turbodiesel, plug-in hybrid and with electric drive
  • Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will present the new Transporter and Caravelle product line in 2024.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will launch the successors to the current Transporter 6.1 and Caravelle 6.1 in 2025. This new generation of the product line has been significantly improved in all areas. This next generation offers significantly expanded standard equipment compared with its predecessors – including a digital cockpit, central display and the latest assist systems – as well as a completely redesigned range of highly efficient drive systems. With the new models, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has for the first time developed a product line that will be available with turbodiesel, plug-in hybrid and electric powertrains.

Tools for professionals: “With our new Transporter, we have developed state-of-the-art tools for professionals. Together with the Multivan and ID. Buzz, we can offer a VW Bus range that is tailored precisely to all our customers’ wishes,” says Lars Krause, Member of the Board of Management for Sales and Marketing at Volkswagen Commercial vehicles.

New VW van portfolio: the range of completely redesigned Transporter and
​Caravelle variants will be huge. The portfolio will include a panel van in two different
​lengths and heights, a Kombi, a dropside vehicle with double cab and the Caravelle.
​This range of bodies can be combined with state-of-the-art turbodiesel engines (TDI)
​as well as a plug-in hybrid drive (eHybrid) and all-electric drives (e-Transporter and e-
​Caravelle). The systematic division of the T product line and the associated separate
​development of vehicles for different purposes and target groups has now resulted
​in a new Transporter that has more commercial vehicle qualities than ever before.

Evolution of the VW van: when the T1 was presented to the press in November
​1949, no one had any idea that this compact, new van would one day become an
​extraordinary model family consisting of three product lines and countless
​derivatives. But this is exactly what happened. First, we have the Multivan (in two
​lengths), which – with up to five removable individual seats in the rear – is not only
​the perfect all-rounder for driving for leisure and for work and a perfect shuttle, but
​will also form the basis for the next generation of the iconic California camper van.
​And then there is the ID. Buzz, which electrifies journeys for families as a bus and, in
​the Cargo version, electrifies urban delivery transport and provides an electric vehicle
​option for tradespeople. Also in 2024, the latest ID. Buzz version with a long
​wheelbase and larger battery will launch in Europe and North America. As the third
​new product line, the new Transporter and the new Caravelle complete the VW van
​transformation. From 2024 onwards, the new multi-talented commercial vehicles
​will continue the success story of their legendary predecessors. Pre-sales of the new
​Transporter will start in Germany before the end of 2023. In light of this, Volkswagen
​Commercial Vehicles will soon announce the specifications of the new Transporter.
