Volkswagen Celebrate Transporter's 60th Birthday

Volkswagen are celebrating the birthday of their iconic Transporter van this month. The van, which is their biggest seller, was presented to the press by Heinrich Nordhoff 60 years ago. While it may not be the model one first thinks of when Volkswagen are mentioned but it has been consistently popular and the latest model will be available next year.

The Transporter is Volkswagen’s best-selling model in the UK and worldwide. Over one million of the current model have been sold since introduction in 2003, making a total of over 10 million since production started in March 1950.
The most sought after Transporter model is the T1 split-screen as shown in this previous post. The new model is expected to be available for sale in January of 2010 and will feature "a new range of common rail TDI engines offering lower emissions and improved economy by an average of ten per cent across the range".
