Volkswagen starts countdown to launch of new Transporter in 2024

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has released some details of the next generation Transporter, and its people-carrier version, the Caravelle, ahead of their launch in 2024.

“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.

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).

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.

The Volkswagen Transporter has a long history. The original T1 was presented to the press in November 1949, and no one had any idea that it would one day become an extraordinary model family consisting of three product lines and countless derivatives.

In 2024, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will also introduce the latest ID. Buzz version with a long wheelbase and larger battery for Europe and North America.

The new Transporter and the new Caravelle will complete the VW van transformation.
