Volkswagen’s latest Transporters, Multivan and Cab Chasis

Volkswagen Australia has just launched T6.1

Volkswagen Australia has just launched T6.1, a makeover of the sixth generation of their Transporter and Multivan range. This is the latest version that has evolved from their Type 2 vehicle platform first released in 1950 which became widely known as the Kombi.

The sixth major generation was first released in 2016. This model is now called the Volkswagen T6.1

This range of vehicles exudes versatility with the different model variants being:

  • Transporter Van (front seats and a big load area)
  • Crewvan (two rows of seats and a good cargo area)
  • Cab Chassis (a single or dual cab ute with an aluminium tray)
  • Multivan (a people mover although VW would probably prefer an official categorisation of SUV)
  • Caravelle (a long wheel-based people mover)
  • California (a camper van)
