2021 Volkswagen Multivan Revealed
The all-new Volkswagen Multivan has been introduced, which marks one of the largest reinvents in its 71-year history for the firm.
Volkswagen has given the moniker Caravelle to symbolize the MPV’s thorough redesign and its absence from the transport company. It is indeed now a solo model, which will be replaced shortly by a Ford-built replacement, coupled with the Transit, with a commercially oriented transport concept.
The 7-seater has instead changed to a larger version of the MQB platform of the Volkswagen Group, which is already available for Seat Tarraco, Skoda Kodiaq, and Volkswagen Tiguan. This change opens the doors for a series of key technological, aesthetic, and ergonomic improvements while allowing the MPV to take up its first-ever hybrid plug-in motor.
The 7-seater was entirely redesigned with the mechanical changes, featuring among its defining traits aesthetic nodes to the 1985 T3-Transporter generation.
Typically, it is possible in a two-tone livery, which is split horizontally, but it is distinguished by a wide grin and a sharp LED light.
The 2021 Volkswagen Multivan is 1,941mm broad, 4,973mm long, and 1,903mm high as normal, however, an extended wheelbase with a length of 5,173mm is also available. In context, the size of the Kia Carnival in India resembles its LWB shape. More efficient aerodynamics are also claimed.
Following a new model seating system and multifunction table, Volkswagen argues that the Multivan is more roomy and flexible inside than its predecessor. The five back seats may be completely removed, and in the second row, a communal sitting configuration may be turned around.
The removal of the center console by removal of the traditional brake and gearbox, Volkswagen says, made possible for a flat floor across the entire cabin, giving 469 liters of boot space in base and extending to 1,844 liters with the most rear seats removed. It is important that the center console is removed.
The driving region has also undergone substantial alterations to make the Multivan closer to the current automobiles of Volkswagen. A redesigned multifunction steering wheel, 10.25-inch digital instrument display, and 10-inch touchscreen infotainment are standard features while a head-up display and a wireless smartphone charge are optionally upgraded.
A range of innovative safety features including traffic sign identification, lane support, and automated emergency braking. are also incorporated. The updated IQ is also available. Drive system which employs the features of adaptive cruise control and lane maintenance.
The 2021 Volkswagen Multivan hybrid PHEV combines a 150 hp turbo-charged, 1.4-liter petrol engine with a 116 hp front axle electric motor for a combined output of 218 hp, however, the 13 kWh battery beneath the floor only permits “smaller urban trips.”
There are 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter turbo-loaded petrol engines available for the 2021 Volkswagen Multivan, and next year a 204hp diesel engine will be added.
The standard petroleum models employ a known 8-speed transmission, while the PHEV is equipped with its unique 6-speed double-clutch (DSG).
While it is quite improbable that the German auto manufacturer would bring the MPV into our market, they are about to introduce the all-new SUV in Taigun. VW also plans to replace the Vento sedan, which will be based on the Virtus in 2022.
