At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, VW unveiled their concept e-Co-Motion. The German manufacturer are going to be launching the new Volkswagen Transporter series in 2015. The question is, how much will it look like the futuristic concept?

What is clear is that van manufacturers are moving toward more car-like interiors. The new Volkswagen Transporter will probably have the touch-screen infotainment system and other electronic driving aids found in the latest Golf and Passat. Some reports have suggested a racing car-esque flat-bottoms steering wheel but we’re not sure how likely this is.
With Euro safety requirements tightening, the new VW Transporter will have numerous airbags as standard and various safety features. It will also have more efficient engines, and there are rumours of the possibility of a hybrid version but not in the first production. Front and all-wheel drive models are likely to be available.
