Volkswagen unveil shape of the new Transporter T6 with teaser sketch
- Created: 26 March 2015
Volkswagen have set pulses racing with the release of a concept sketch for their next generation Transporter model the T6.
This will be the sixth-generation of vehicle released as part of the Transporter range and is looking set to follow in the footsteps of it's predecessor the Transporter T5.
Paying homage to it's heritage this new vehicle is looking to be an evolutionary release rather than evolutionary. The teaser sketch released by Volkswagen shows the rear profile of the vehicle and reveals that the T6 will be adopting the 'family look' that the previous generations have sported.
The Transporter line dates back over half a century to the 1950's when the first generation T1 was released, since then over 11 million vehicles from the Transporter line have been sold worldwide making the Transporters some of the best-selling and well known light commercial vehicles on the market.
Towards the end of last year Volkswagen released images of their VW Tristar concept vehicle, interestingly there are similarities between the Tristar and this new T6 teaser image.
Showing off the well known sharp lines and neatly-designed tail lights that Volkswagen have become known for, the teaser sketch is showing some of the same styling that we loved from the Tristar.
Even though this is the sixth installment into this range Volkswagen has stated that, "getting the job done efficiently and reliably" is at the core of their Transporter range and this ethos will continue into the T6.
The vehicle is expected to be unveiled in full on the 15th April 2015 with a release date further on in the year. We'll have more information for this new vehicle once it is released.
