Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has been awarded its third International Van of the Year (IVOTY) title for the Transporter model. The 2016 award follows the success of its Transporter T5 in 2004 and the Transporter T4 in 1992.
The accolade was presented at the Solutrans Commercial Vehicle Show to Dr Eckhard Scholz, head of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
He commented: “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 dedicate this prize to all Transporter users and accept it with great pleasure on behalf of the whole Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles team. This great honour makes us very proud and gives us a positive impetus for a good start into what is set to be an eventful year in 2016.”
Both stylish and practical, the new Transporter looks sure to continue its success in 2016 as the van of choice for commercial and private buyers. Available as a panel van, kombi or shuttle shape, the model is well suited to a variety of businesses. Strong residual values and low running costs make it a sensible investment too.
