Volkswagen Transporter is the first minivan and the second civilian manufactured by Volkswagen after Volkswagen Kafer. For the first time, Volkswagen Transporter was introduced to the public in 1950. During several decades, five generations of Volkswagen Transporter were premiered. The demand for Volkswagen Transporter was very high among buyers and transporters. In 1979, the next generation of Volkswagen Transporter was presented, which was continued its production till 1992. In South Africa, its production continued for another 12 years.
