60 years with Volkswagen Transporter

VW Transporter is much more than just a Van! It’s an icon, and that’s why it matters so much when it turns 60.

Since its birth in March 1950, over 10 million units of this vehicle through five generations have been produced, and along with the Ford Transit, it’s been always known as the ultimate multi-purpose vehicle.

60 years with Volkswagen Transporter Volkswagen Transporter

The first T1 ‘split-screen’ model was powered by a four-cylinder, air-cooled, 1.1-litre petrol engine mounted at the back of the vehicle.  It produced 25 PS of power and had a top speed of about 60 mph.  By comparison, the new Transporter enjoys the refinement of Volkswagen’s latest 2.0-litre, common rail, turbocharged diesel engine, available with power outputs ranging from 84 PS to 180 PS and a top speed of up to 119 mph, plus the latest stability control systems and braking technology that would have sounded like something from a science fiction novel 60 years ago.

So what we have here is a paradox. Because the vans are not cool, but the Transporter because of its character and heritage, is actually quite cool!
