Transporter of the future

Last month at IAA, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles presented a concept vehicle with the legendary name of TRISTAR. The utility style vehicle with extended cab, styling bar and short wheelbase has a permanent four-wheel drive with mechanical rear axle differential lock and 30 mm additional ground clearance. Fitting its name, the designers have developed a high-precision, new and yet familiar design language: the sharp, wrap-around lines, LED headlights and a changed architecture of the whole front give the concept vehicle a powerful and wide appearance. The monolithic dashboard is reminiscent in its shape and simple functionality of the earlier models of the VW Transporter. The load can be distributed on two separate levels: there is a spacious, dust-proof and watertight drawer under the flatbed section, where a deep-tread spare wheel is also housed. The interior has a 20-inch tablet table and state-of-the-art video conferencing and sound systems alongside the turning and sliding driver and passenger seats, turning the TRISTAR into a potential meeting place (with rather limited space). There is even an espresso machine installed.

All-rounder for specialists

Its off-road capability in combination with flexible transport and storage capacities make the TRISTAR into a mobile workshop, a mobile high-tech office or into a surf mobile. Safe and flexible, the new Volkswagen TRISTAR is a versatile tool for many users. Whether an architect, a film crew, service expert, landscape gardener or an expedition participant.
