500,000th T6 produced
JUST three years after production of the sixth-generation Transporter began, the 500,000th T6 rolled off the line in Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ main Hannover plant in June.
The 500,000th vehicle is a Multivan with two-tone paint finish in Candy White and Curcuma Yellow.
In total, since production of the series began in Hannover on 8 March 1956, around 8.8 million Transporters have been made.
Dr Eckhard Scholz, chairman of the brand board of management of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles said: “This milestone is, above all, the result of consistent customer focus. We are gearing our production more than ever to the wishes of our customers and with intelligent solutions we are creating added value for their everyday routines and leisure activities.
‘At the same time the excellent production figures are indicative of committed employees and thus of a highly efficient site. This story of success is one that we will continue to write together!’
The T-series is produced on a three-shift basis both in Hannover-Stöcken (Multivan, California, Kombi, Caravelle, Transporter) and at the Poznan plant in Poland (Kombi, Caravelle, Transporter, pick-up).
