Volkswagen is working on an electric successor to its iconic Microbus based on 2017’s ID Buzz concept car. It’s confirmed to reach the United States around 2022 and may even be built here.
However, concurrent with the development of the new electric van is development of a new generation of VW’s popular Transporter series of vans sold overseas.
The sixth-generation Transporter, the T6, was just updated last year. It’s been in production since 2015, though, and thus due for a redesign in the not too distant future.
It should come as no surprise then that prototypes for a seventh-generation Transporter, the T7, are already out and about. Sadly, we’re unlikely to see a local launch but elsewhere it should hit dealerships in 2021.
