VW Transporter T7 Spied Inside And Out Showing Golf-Like Cabin
The new Volkswagen Transporter, more elegant, more efficient and more refined, is approaching the day when it will be revealed to the world. Until then, however, we’ll have to deal with some unofficial spy photos of the model, and today we can share a new batch of snaps.
This time around we have a huge gallery of over 50 photos taken at two different locations in Europe. Some of the photos even give a glimpse of the interior of the new T7 and it can be said that it is heavily inspired by the interior of the new Volkswagen Golf 8.
If you take a closer look at the digital dash, you’ll even notice that the image shows a vehicle that looks a lot like the sedan. This could explain why there’s a laptop attached to the car, but it could also be used for measurements and adjustments to some of the T7’s electronics.
The spy prototypes are both powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain. We saw a PHEV test car before riding the Nürburgring and our bet is that the vehicle will rely on the Volkswagen Group’s 1.4-liter plug-in hybrid system, with a combined output of 241 hp (180 kW). . The same mill is also available in the Golf GTE, as well as in the Skoda Octavia.
Volkswagen hasn’t said a word about the vehicle’s specifications, but it’s possible the engine could be tweaked to deliver more power and torque at lower revs to better meet the needs of the new Transporter. After all, the main applications of the bus include the transportation and transportation of passengers or heavy luggage.
Volkswagen is expected to unveil the new Transporter before the end of this year. It has not been confirmed if the PHEV model will arrive on day one and we believe it will join the lineup at some point next year.
