VW calls it Multi Utility Vehicle (MUV), known in the vernacular and appreciates him as a VW bus or, more loving even when Bulli. Since 1950 he is built, and whether the generations T1 or T6 were called – the overused term of the automotive icon had over the decades away always justified.
Unwise it would therefore have been to shake the established in the perception of a worldwide fan base anchored style. Also called Multivan T7 Bulli looks so beautiful from familiar: What remains is, with all the typical modernization, but now from a chrome strip refined horizontal character line, well below the windscreen significantly forward engine bonnet.
In classical dress but puts a completely new vehicle. For while the T7 remains one of the range of Volkswagen s commercial vehicle division (Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles) and runs in Hanover from tape, uses the modular transverse toolkit (MQB) but the first time a car platform, they are known for example from the Golf, Tiguan and Passat,
Even as a long-wheelbase version
The most important reason is to purchase a van that is where space behind it stand for at least five exclamation marks. And from the space, the new model has a lot to offer. T7 on the T6.1 stretches nearly 7 centimeters out and bring it to a length of 4.97 meters, at the same time he has gone to 3.7 centimeters in width, makes 1.94 meters. On the other hand, he crouches 4.3 centimeters deep; the reduced height dimension of 1.91 meters has the advantage that car parks or parking garages now no more taboos are. As an alternative to the standard model, in turn, a long-wheelbase version stands ready with an identical wheelbase it comes to 5.18 meters in length.
Interior: Fully digitized, the mini-shifters for the DSG gear stages sitting on the dashboard. Manufacturer
Always the T7 is equipped with double-sided sliding doors, depending on equipment they open electrically and by Fußgeste, as well as the tailgate. Getting so: The interior has changed much more than the exterior. The cockpit layout draws Golf & Co., a digital screen area incl. The central monitor is up to 10 inches tall, a head-up display provides the configurator. That the Multivan the unlit and uncomfortable Slider for temperature and volume control has adapted, however, is a rather dubious progress. And on our first exit infotainment got out rude.
The mini-shifter for the standard DSG dual clutch transmission have the interior strategists positioned on the dashboard, the same applies to the electric parking brake – with a center console that does not allow the unimpeded through-cab backwards, drivers must (in) and thus not around plagued passenger (in),
individual seats instead of three-back seat
From the three-seat bench in the last row, the T7 adopted. Instead, there are individual seats, up to seven in number. All rear seat can be moved, to fold or expand, also a communicative Vis-à-Vis positioning. That the pews has slimmed down and weighs nurmehr 23 to 29 kg, facilitates the conversion and expansion measures, even if it is still extremely moving mass. As a novelty, VW announced the energization of the rail system to allow the rear seat armchairs can now be heated. On said rails and the height-adjustable and folding multifunction table, which can be used as needed as a center console between the front seats or moved backward running.
Good Night Package
The many customers have wanted: The seats have become easier. Manufacturer
To the estimated possibilities of Multivans always included the chance to use it as a place to sleep. In the absence of triple rear bench is so over temporarily – at least as long as the Good Night package is included in the program, including a foldable mattress to 2022nd
As for the trunk volume, so stay in the basic version, even with full seating still 469 liters behind the second row of seats to do 1,844 liters, and the Multivan can be loaded up behind the two front seats, he swallows 3,672 liters away, in each case calculated roof high. Also as a powerful driving force, the T7 actuated brakes it takes 1.6 to 2 tons on the hook, the predecessor there, however, were still 2.5 tons. The load shrinks slightly, depending on the variant of 410 to 848 kilograms.
Had the precursor still set solely on diesel, the driving position in the new model will change fundamentally. With the launch this November, the customer may initially two four-cylinder Turbobenzinern select – with 100 kW / 136 PS (1.5 TSI) and 150 kW / 204 PS (2.0 TSI). It was not until next spring followed by a 110 kW / 150 hp diesel. You start from a migration, says Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles spokesman Jens Bobsien, many buyers would go to the Otto, others in the PHEV.
Multivan with plug
The PHEV, which is a plug-in hybrid, the 110 / employed a 1.4 liter turbocharged gasoline engine kW 150 HP and an electric motor of 85 kW / 116 PS, jointly, the duo achieves a performance of 160 kW / 218 hp and a torque of 350 Nm., A lithium-ion battery is of comparatively modest 10.4 kWh net capacity than current donor on the household power outlet, it is recharged in five hours, the procedure at the wallbox or public charging column is reduced to three hours and 40 minutes. The charging power is 3.6 kW, which is not huge, but is within the bounds of what plug-in hybrids commonly offer. Fast charging is not possible for shuttle services, the schedule could be tricky.
50 km electric range
After WLTP standard of Multivan eHybrid intended to provide to 50 purely electrical kilometers on a single charge 46th On our first trip the battery was not fully charged, as the situation in real life be like, a more detailed test show. For the time being the plug-in is still able to enjoy 5,625 euros net environmental bonus – applicable from January 2022 new electrical minimum range of 60 kilometers, it can CO2 emissions of less than 50g / km oppose, 34 g / km, therefore. If, as discussed, the CO2-way be blocked, while the supply stopped threatening.

On the way, the eHybrid s always electric. Pleasant feeling at this, gentle, smooth and powerful acceleration takes place. But as soon as the combustion engine is running or completely takes over, it s over with the relaxed easy-going feeling. the driver gets higher speeds, the machine is something hard sound, the interaction with the 6-G-DSG does not always harmonious.
however, a positive surprise was provided by the small gasoline engine, whose 100 kW / 136 hp we met with not too high expectations. But the beginner is nothing to reproach, he pulls neat and sufficiently strong to acoustic obtrusiveness he does at no time, the DSG – unlike in eHybrid has seven steps – turns accurately and unobtrusively.

All drive options provide a very handy and actually car-like driving experience, the high seating position allows a serene view over the traffic situation, the characteristics of a relaxed cruiser is comfortably tuned suspension adjusts the front-wheel drive.

Not least via car-to-X communication is the exchange of warnings with other vehicles and the traffic infrastructure.
A bargain has never been the Multivan, and it also changes in generation T7 nothing. Entry is at 44,839 euros gross, and for the e-Hybrid will be at least 57,174 euros due.
The T6.1 remains – and comes ID.Buzz
The T7 way, is just one of several members of the Bulli family. to lose your sight, falls not easy: During the Multivan is recommended as a family friendly Großraumvan with lifestyle attitude, and the T6.1 still remains in the program, including 204-horsepower diesel and all-wheel drive, it primarily serves commercial customers and provides the basis for the camper classic California.
