2025 Volkswagen Transporter: more T7 details teased

Volkswagen T7 wheels

Volkswagen is continuing to slowly tease details of its seventh-generation Transporter: the Volkswagen T7.

Its latest offering is a glimpse of a particularly charismatic and versatile model which will be available within the new VW T7 range: the PanAmericana.

“Right from the outset and across the generations, the Transporter has been a robust and practical vehicle. And it achieves this in its most beautiful form. That’s why it has become an icon,” said Albert Kirzinger, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Chief Designer. “Now, with our seventh Transporter, we have managed to create another vehicle that meets precisely these criteria – a robust vehicle with a highly aesthetic design. It seamlessly follows the classic Bulli DNA, but we have systematically enhanced the design – as is perfectly demonstrated by the new PanAmericana.

“The new Transporter combines a high degree of utility with the distinctively clean and iconic style of Volkswagen Design. It is not just the vehicle’s overall lines, but also its individual elements that have become hallmark features of the product line.”

These include wheel rims, headlights and tail light clusters.

The Chief Designer adds: “Even supposedly small details such as side sill panel moulding or wheel arch extensions are elements where this combination of robustness and aesthetics fuse together to give the Transporter its unique DNA.”

The new PanAmericana demonstrates this perfectly with its all-terrain attachments on the sides: They are useful because they protect the body.

They are aesthetically pleasing because their design is clean and precise.

And they are a visible evolution of the PanAmericana design, as they add further emphasis to the allroad character and robustness of this Bulli built for globetrotters.

Another example of the striking Transporter and Volkswagen details is the new 19-inch “Indianapolis” alloy wheel.

The PanAmericana will be launched with this first 19-inch wheel as standard, the first in the history of the series.

It features a premium design with a diamond-cut rim and black spoked star.

According to Kirzinger, “Even if you covered up the VW badge on the hub cap, the Indianapolis wheel would still be recognisable as a Transporter and Volkswagen wheel thanks to its clean, iconic design.”
