Family in Volkswagen Multivan PHEV

Five reasons why you need the Volkswagen Multivan Plug-In Hybrid

The Volkswagen Multivan PHEV is the ultimate game changer with its fresh new design and the first ever Volkswagen van with a plug-in hybrid solution. Wherever your day leads you, the Multivan PHEV offers flexibility, high-class passenger comfort, and an incredibly spacious interior. Whether you’re wanting range assurance when tackling long roadies with the family or wanting to reduce carbon footprint for everyday school runs, this van is filled with endless possibilities. There are many reasons to love the Multivan PHEV, but here are five reasons why you need this van.

1. A new seating concept

Inside the Multivan PHEV is space for up to seven seats. It features five rear removable and adjustable seats that are light enough to be repositioned and easily removed to suit your set-up, allowing you to create different seating arrangements in just a few simple steps. You can adjust the seats in a way where the passengers are facing each other or even take them out if you need the extra space.


2. Safety first

The Multivan PHEV is one you can rely on when it comes to prioritising your passengers’ safety. Not only does the Multivan offer extreme comfort but also high-class safety driver assists systems, allowing peace of mind and assurance while on the road. The driver assist system includes the latest safety features which includes City Emergency Braking, Cruise Control, and the Lane Assist system. In addition, the Multivan premiers an ‘Area View’ where the van shows a real 360-degree representation of the vehicle using four cameras which are visible on the 10-inch infotainment display, making parking and manoeuvring as safe and easy as possible.


3. First class comfort

Besides the roomy interior that your passengers will surely appreciate on those long trips, they can also enjoy sky views with the optional two-part panoramic sunroof. Getting in and out is also a breeze with two power sliding doors with an Easy Open feature which has a Virtual Pedal, allowing the doors to be operated via a kicking motion for ease of entry. This feature, plus a keyless entry are perfect for when you’ve got your hands full!


If that’s not enough to convince you, the Multivan has an innovative multifunction table which can be moved between any of the seating rows or used as a centre console between the front seats. It is height adjustable and features three cup holders as well as a deep storage compartment. Of course, the driver’s comfort is just as important as the passengers. The driver can relax in ultimate comfort through long journeys with the Multivan Energetic feature, complete with massage functions.

4. Eye-catching exterior

Not only does this Multivan offer superior comfort and convenience, but also an aesthetically, eye-pleasing exterior. Turn heads with the eye-catching solid tone or classic two-tone finish, which is complimented by a chrome band, running centrally from the headlights to the rear. This Multivan is definitely out of the ordinary.


5. Get the best of both worlds

The new Multivan PHEV combines a 1.4 TSI 110kW engine with an 85kW electric motor, to produce a combined power output of 160kW. Enjoy silent, zero-emission pure electric driving for up to 50km1 while having the flexibility to enjoy longer journeys through an efficient automatic combustion engine.
