2021 Volkswagen T7 Multivan Renders Shed New Light On Latest Spy Shots

Earlier this month, we brought you a big gallery of spy shots featuring a VW minivan that looked like the next-generation T7 Multivan except it featured slightly different proportions.

The test prototype featured a completely new body with a more horizontal bonnet than we’ve seen on the Multivan over the years, longer overhangs, an extended windshield and a cabin moved further back.

According to reports from German media, all these changes foretell a major shift for the next-generation T7 Multivan, which is said to migrate to the MQB platform instead of continuing with the aging 7H/7J commercial vehicle architecture. Therefore, it will become a true passenger car-derived minivan.

Using the spy shots as a basis, Russian website Kolesa‘s resident Photoshop artist imagined what the production T7 Multivan will look like when it debuts sometime next year, possibly as a 2021 model. As you can see, the people carrier will adopt sleeker headlights and taillights, in line with VW’s passenger car lineup, as well as a sportier stance — if we’re allowed to use this word in relation to a minivan.

At the front, the T7 Multivan looks bolder than the current model thanks to a massive lower grille and an upper grille that fits flush with the “angrier” headlights. Seen from the side, an additional window appears between the windshield and the front door in order to improve visibility. As with the VW Multivan 6.1, a belt line will link the headlights with the taillights, which will be horizontal and will adopt a modern LED signature.

Also visible at the lower end of the doors is a pronounced concave surface which designers likely added to visually break the massive sheetmetal. The switch to the MQB architecture will allow VW to offer the T7 Multivan with mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains, as well as the latest safety and connectivity tech.

    Arguably the most awe inspiring design I’ve seen in some time.

    Yet another car we likely won’t see in the States.

    My guess is that it will not be as boxy as that. To me it looks like the surface radiuses (radii?) on the test protoypes are a bit larger, which will make it look a little bit rounder.

    For YEARS I’ve read stories about VW bringing back the ‘Bus’. Whatever happened to that?

      Yep ,the “Microbus” that was a brazilian idea. Now they say it will be produced as an electric only Microbus ID buzz…
