What’s New About the VW Transporter T7?

The VW T7 marks a significant leap in the iconic series with a focus on hybrid technology. Riding on the advanced MQB Evo platform, the T7 will debut with a mix of petrol, diesel, and, for the first time, a plug-in hybrid powertrain, showcasing Volkswagen’s stride towards sustainable innovation. This evolution reflects a commitment to environmental stewardship without sacrificing the versatility and performance the series is known for.



What’s the Difference Between the VW T7 and the T7 Multivan?

The T7 Transporter, distinct from the T7 Multivan, offers a more versatile and innovative solution for a new generation of enthusiasts seeking to explore the world in comfort and style. Unlike the Multivan, which is a car-based people-mover, the T7 Transporter is a panel van built on a separate platform.

While the T7 Multivan is underpinned by the MQB architecture, the T7 Transporter and Caravelle share a distinct platform. Both the Transporter and Caravelle will be available with turbo diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrains, similar to the T7 Multivan, but with their own unique capabilities and target audiences.

What’s the Difference Between VW T6 and T7?


The transition to the MQB Evo platform in the T7 not only brings in hybrid and electric drivetrains but also elevates the interior experience with modern luxuries and enhanced flexibility.

The shift towards a more opulent MPV segment, along with innovative features like electric sliding doors and a more car-like driving experience, marks a pivotal evolution from the T6, promising a blend of tradition and cutting-edge technology for the contemporary traveller.


Should I get a VW T6 or T7?

No, both the T6 and T6.1 maintain similar dimensions to the T5, focusing on updates in technology rather than size changes. Both series offer comparable length, width, and height, ensuring the T6 and T6.1 remain as practical and versatile as their predecessor.


Should I get a T5, a T6, or a T6.1?

Choosing between the VW T6 and T7 comes down to a preference for traditional performance (T6) versus advanced technology and sustainability (T7). The T7’s introduction of plug-in hybrid technology, along with significant improvements in space and modern amenities, presents a compelling proposition for those seeking the latest in automotive innovation. It’s worth noting that these innovations mean the VW T7 will have a higher price point than the older VW T6 model.
