VW Transporter T7 van prototype seen on testsOctober 11, 2019
Judging by the “spy” photos of the seen prototype of the updated VW Transporter T7, the car has already received some serial panels of the new body. And yes, this was the first time we saw a new T7 German van. The presentation of the news is unlikely to take place in the coming year.
The photographs presented here are a kind of our first look at a German novelty. Yes, foreign journalists have noticed test prototypes of a German van a couple of times in the past, but they were all “dressed” in the body of the current generation Transporter (T6). Now we have two new batches of “spy” snapshots, thanks to which we first saw the upcoming T7, in camouflage, of course, but still this is our first look at the German novelty.
Because of the camouflage film, we can’t see the car from all sides and in all the details that are of interest to us. However, the fact that the van received an updated front end we cannot but notice – the outlines of another false radiator grill, located significantly below the headlights, are already visible.
Now it’s hard to say whether there are false panels on the prototype seen. Several different test T7s were spotted this time, and some shots suggest that there may be a small window in front of the front desk, at least on some models. At the rear, the window looks a little smaller, and the new taillights have a more horizontal orientation. Journalists even managed to capture the VW Transporter T7 interior into the lenses of their cameras, although it is now very difficult to understand what should we expect from this part of the new product.
The German van will be built on the VW MQB modular platform, customers will be able to choose either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. It is reported that the car will be available both in the regular version and in the version with a long wheelbase. It is also expected the appearance of a plug-in hybrid powerplant, as well as an all-electric motor.
