  • New version of the top seller from Hannover voted best van of the year 2016

Hannover – An international jury of commercial vehicle journalists from 24 European countries has made its decision: the sixth generation of the successful model from Hannover is the best van of the year 2016.

The Transporter from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is receiving this coveted award for the third time in its history.

Yesterday evening Dr. Eckhard Scholz, Chief Executive Officer of the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand, accepted the award from Jarlath Sweeney, head of the jury, in the context of the Solutrans trade fair in Lyon. “The prestigious International Van of the Year 2016 award for our T-series is a great mark of recognition for the achievements of our team, which by implementing the correct measures has made our icon from Hannover the best transporter ever.
We are especially pleased to receive this great honour in these difficult times for us and we see it as a signal and an incentive for a successful start into what is set to be an eventful year in 2016.”
