Volkswagen Tristar concept previews next-generation Transporter

The Volkswagen Tristar concept was revealed overnight at the IAA commercial vehicle show in Hanover, and it previews the look of the next-generation Transporter.

Reports indicate that the next-generation Transporter will debut at the 2015 Geneva motor show that takes place in March. It’s expected that the next Transporter will feature a new body draped over a reworked version of the chassis used in the current Transporter range.

With LED headlights, twin-bar grille and a rectilinear style, the short wheelbase, extended cab Tristar features a new, yet very familiar look.

Under the concept car’s plastic fender extensions are chunky off-road tyres wrapped around 17-inch alloy wheels. According to Volkswagen, the Tristar has an extra 30mm of ground clearance compared to regular Transporters.

The Tristar measures almost 4.8 metres from nose to tail, is 2.32m wide and has a roof that’s 2.07m off the ground. Although it can only seat two people, both the driver’s and passenger’s seats can slide and turn, and behind the driver’s seat there’s a 20-inch tablet computer on a swinging arm and videoconferencing equipment.

The cabin is also equipped with a large touchscreen entertainment system, plenty of faux metal trim and a much more modern dashboard design than the current Transporter.
