New Volkswagen Transporter teased with headlight and wheel designs

June 28, 2024

The first proper details of the upcoming Volkswagen Transporter have been released ahead of its reveal at the IAA Hannover commercial vehicle trade show in September.

The digital renderings released by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles show minor details of the what will be the seventh-generation Transporter including the headlight and rear light design as well as alloy wheels and the PanAmericana name currently used on high trim level Volkswagen Amarok pick-up trucks.

Accompanying two official graphics of the alloy wheel design and PanAmericana name badge is a short video where viewers get a glimpse of the new headlights and electric vehicle charging point, and the rear light cluster.

The new model will be made by Ford and is based on the Ford Transit Custom and Ford E-Transit Custom but VW says the new Transporter “seamlessly follows the classic Bulli DNA” adding that they have “systematically enhanced the design – as is perfectly demonstrated by the new PanAmericana”.

“The new Transporter combines a high degree of utility with the distinctively clean and iconic style of Volkswagen Design. It is not just the vehicle’s overall lines, but also its individual elements that have become hallmark features of the product line,” says says Albert Kirzinger, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ chief designer.

For the first time in the history of the Transporter, the PanAmericana will be launched with 19-inch wheels as standard. It will get a diamond-cut rim and black spoked star – a nod to the Indianapolis wheel recognisable as a Transporter design.

“The headlights and tail light clusters have long been more than just sources of light. Even the first Transporter had round headlights that made it look like the commercial vehicle had eyes, giving the front end a face. The new Transporter also has an unmistakable face – and this is once again thanks to its striking light design,” Kirzinger adds.

PanAmericana trim will also include the top-spec version of the new LED headlights, however, even the entry-level new Transporter vans will also have LED headlights.
