Microbus concept was introduced for the first time in the year 2001 at the Detroit auto show. The micro bus has moved nearer to production after the ideas and project were cancelled in the year 2006.
2014 Volkswagen Microbus is very much likely to be smaller and will resemble the actual concept version. It looks very much identical to the concept model. The production model will be unveiled in 2013 and the vehicle production will start in the year 2014.
Motivation for the production version has come from various other engines in the company’s parts bin. Power is transmitted to front wheels through 6-speed or 7-speed dual clutch transaxles. It might also get an all-wheel drive train. Sales of the vehicle in US are almost a certainty.
Production of the new VW Microbus will coincide with the other bigger van and it replaces new Routan.
