VAG SSP 310 – The Transporter 2004 PDF
In March 1950, series production of the first VW Transporter starts at a rate of 10 vehicles per day. For engine and axles, standard parts from the VW Beetle are used. The vehicle is characterised by a self-supporting body on a ladder frame chassis and it is driven by a rear engine with rear wheel drive.
The T2 continues the success of the Transporter series further. Single piece windscreen and larger windows offer more light and greater driving safety. Dimensions and load apacity increase. For the first time, a side sliding door in installed.
With a new body design, the T3 (T25) offers more space, improved all-round view and greater active and passive safety. Load volume and payload capacity increase. A new front axle provides improved road handling and safety.
With the T4, a completely new vehicle concept with front wheel drive and front transverse mounted water-cooled engine is introduced.
The new Transporter is launched on the market. The great variety ranges from drop-side and panel van variants up to the Multivan. It is again a trendsetter in its class.
