The new Multivan

Ready for a new era

Innovative, digital, forward-looking – that’s the public face of the new Multivan. But it’s also safe, comfortable and functional. It is ready for a new era, but still maintains the strengths of its predecessors.

Let’s look back to the year 1985: Frankfurt am Main, September. Visitors to the International Motor Show that year who were lucky enough to stop at the Volkswagen stand at the right moment experienced the unveiling of a new mobility concept – the world première of the first Volkswagen Multivan. After the production of more than 4 million Transporters, the product range now boasted a new addition: the Multivan. The development contract in Stöcken, Hanover, was to create an all-rounder in the Multivan, alongside the Caravelle and the Kombi. At that time, the demands made of the vehicle were formulated as follows: “Accommodation option, generous cargo room and space for a family with luggage and leisure equipment” – demands that had never been put into practice in this way before. This was the birth of an idea that was to become an icon.

The Multivan idea: innovation from tradition
