Paying homage to the DNA of its Kombi predecessor, the 7th generation Multivan can be specified with a classic two-tone finish, complimented by a chrome band that runs centrally from the headlights to the rear.

It’s a modern take on time-honoured style.

Importantly, this Multivan heralds a new world of efficiency for both energy and space. The PHEV technology provides travel for distances up to 42km of pure electric motivation (tested to Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles standards) making typical daily commutes or school drop-offs ‘guilt-free’.

Meanwhile flexible and spacious packaging provides up to seven seats and extra room for luggage, an ideal combination of practicality, comfort, and safety for whatever your needs may be.

With modern families in mind, an innovative multifunction table can be moved between seating rows and features three cupholders with extra storage capacity. Perfect for working on the go or keeping the kids occupied on longer journeys.

General Manager of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles New Zealand, Kevin Richards, is excited to introduce the first electrified commercial model to a Kiwi audience. 

“The brand new T7 platform has evolved from a long-standing heritage while providing an electric solution to suit Kiwi families. The iconic design has undergone evolutionary development, that ushers in a new era for the brand and for mobility. “

“This iteration’s high-tech features and flexibility gives busy families especially, solutions to today's rapidly changing transport needs,”

With up to seven seats, the Multivan PHEV assumes more than ever the key role of the variable all-rounder. Designed above all for families and active, sporty people, its completely new seating and cargo space system accommodates countless mobility scenarios. 

This seventh generation is also the most progressive Multivan ever, launching with a Plug-in-Hybrid solution that can deliver lower emissions while still providing the range assurance needed to tackle long journeys and New Zealand roads.


Pricing for the family model starts from $78,800 plus on road costs. Coupled with the government’s Clean Car Discount, the Family variant will qualify for a rebate which ultimately enables a price-point to spec that puts the Multivan head and shoulders above the competition.
