Over the years, we have had the opportunity to test and explore Volkswagen’s modern transport vehicles — This T6 generation, Mainly in its Camper From form — We have been fascinated by this damn thing, its usability and versatility, as well as its clever design and packaging, so much so that it is always distressing to remember that Volkswagen has no plans to sell any of these products in the United States.Volkswagen has now released The latest version of the transporter-T7 — It looks great, and its breasts are as tough as ever for any American who wants one.
The name “T7” comes from the fact that if you don’t know, this is the seventh-generation transport vehicle manufactured by Volkswagen, starting from the original Type 2 air-cooled minibus in 1950.
It is also worth noting that this generation of T7 finally changed the balance from the algebra of the same number of rear-engined transporters and front-engined transporters, so more front-engined transporters have now officially appeared.
The new 2022 T7 Multivan (passenger version, Transporter cargo version will be launched together with the camper) is now based on Volkswagen’s modular MQB platform and can now be equipped with a plug-in hybrid system: 1.4-liter TSI inline four-cylinder engine and 85kW electric motor, The total power is 215 horsepower.
The 13 kWh lithium-ion battery is installed on the floor. So far, Volkswagen has not released the range of pure electric vehicles. Multivan also offers 134 hp/1.5 liter TSI, 2 liter/201 hp TSI or 148 hp diesel flavors, all installed on the seven-speed DSG.
It is a bit larger than T6, the internal layout and design are new, and the rear seats are independent instead of benches.
There is also a cool pop-up center console with wings that can be folded into a useful table, which is also cool.
The cockpit seems to have been upgraded with some interesting-looking new materials and textures, a larger screen, a head-up display, and some mood lighting.
The appearance is brand new, but still very much in line with the development of the transporter series. From the beginning, it has become the iconic visual touch of Volkswagen trucks, such as the two-tone paint scheme divided at the waistline, which retains the excellent effect, and this latest version seems to emphasize the waistline more than the upcoming waistline.
The lighting unit has also been modernized and features a unique headlight logo, including a full-width lighting strip that intersects the main headlight unit in a clever way.
The grille and various air intake screens have new and technological-looking textures. I am proud of the Volkswagen designers because they just let the front radar transmitter hang in the front and the middle, without shame or clumsy camouflage attempts. .
It looks beautiful, very useful, a huge van. I still think this kind of thing is very popular in the United States. It offers more flexibility than most SUVs or crossovers on the market, but Volkswagen makes it beautiful. Obviously this will not happen, so, you know, it’s too bad.
