Self Study Program 453 – For the T5 2010

VAG SSP 453. The T5 from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. Series production of the first Volkswagen Transporter started in March 1950. An initial production of 10  vehicles per day quickly developed into one of the most successful careers for an automobile, and one which laid the foundation for a new vehicle segment. Multivan and Caravelle also founded a new vehicle segment in which they have continued to set new standards right down to the present day.

Today, as in the past, the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand stands for innovative technology and a product range that is tailored to  requirements. At the same time, e.g. TDI, DSG and 4MOTION represent  unique technical solutions that are only available in this segment in models from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

The T5 2010 will be available in the following equipment lines:

  • Transporter: Panel van, window van, chassis, platform van and back-to-back cab
  • Caravelle: Trendline and Comfortline
  • California: Beach and Comfortline
  • Multivan: Startline, Comfortline, Highline and PanAmericana
