Volkswagen has a production record bragging about. And it’s not Golf, as everyone would think. The record-breaking Volkswagen Transporter has celebrated its 70th birthday, making it the world’s longest production run for a commercial vehicle.

The Transporter – also known as Bulli, Kombi, VW bus or microbus – first rolled off the Wolfsburg production line on 8 March 1950, and since then 13 million have been sold.

For six generations, globetrotters have traveled the world in it, businesses have relied on it and families have driven it every single day.

The future is bright for the icon, with the latest iteration, T6.1, launched in 2019, showcasing a new dashboard and greater connectivity.
