The Transporter is a light commercial vehicle for the transport of goods or people produced by Volkswagen, in various series, starting from 1949.
In the spring of 1947 Ben Pon, the Dutch importer of Volkswagen, was visiting the Wolfsburg factories and saw a trolley set up on the base of the Beetle to transport heavy materials from one department to another of the factory.
Hence the idea of designing a freight or people carrier truck.
The van was sturdy, simple and versatile, when the vehicle became a generational fashion it was used as a means of transport by the Hippies and flower children and the following versions came out: Samba Bus and Westphalia
