After facelift last year, Volkswagen Multivan expects a significant update. The new generation was tested in the cold, where he was caught by spies.

The T7 has an evolutionary style that supports the body of its predecessor, adorned with modern elements that we can find in the newer VW models as a new front design repeating it from the new Golf.

According to expectations, it will be based on a completely new platform, in particular, on MQB, although this remains to be confirmed. In any case, power will come from the familiar 2-liter VW gasoline and diesel engines, while we are likely to see soft hybrids joining the family.

The biggest news, however, will be the introduction of a plug-in hybrid. According to rumors, it will be called GTE, like other PHEVs produced by VW. A couple of weeks ago it was tested and it will be the union of a four-cylinder gasoline unit with a small electric motor and battery.

The new T7 will also be implemented with electric transmission, as VW experimented with such an option in an outgoing iteration, which was developed jointly with ABT Sportsline. Named e-Transporter, it came with an electric motor delivering 111 hp. (110 hp / 82 kW) and a 37.3 kWh or 74.6 kWh battery for a total driving range of 208 km and 400 km, respectively, in the old NEDC test cycle. However, the new one will probably have nothing to do with the German tuner.

The T7 is reported to be sold along with the T6 and is expected to debut at the end of the year or early 2021.
