Volkswagen unveils Tristar Concept at the IAA
Multifunctional like a Swiss Army knife. Variable, reliable and an all-rounder: on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the first Syncro concept car, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles presents the TRISTAR, an unprecedented combination of all the good features of the current T model series.
Its extreme off-road capability combined with flexible transport and storage capacities make the Tristar the perfect service, transport or surf mobile, at your choice.
Transporter of the future. On the occasion of this year’s IAA, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles presents a concept vehicle with the legendary name of Tristar.
The beefy pick-up with extended cab, styling bar and short wheelbase has a permanent four-wheel drive with mechanical rear axle differential lock and 30 mm additional ground clearance. Fitting its name, the designers have developed a high-precision, new and yet familiar design language: the sharp, wrap-around lines, LED headlights and a changed architecture of the whole front give the concept car a powerful and wide appearance.
The monolithic dashboard is reminiscent in its shape and simple functionality of the earlier models of the VW Transporter. The load can be distributed on two separate levels: there is a spacious, dust-proof and watertight drawer under the flatbed section, where a deep-tread spare tire is also housed.
The interior has a 20-inch tablet table and state-of-the-art video conferencing and sound systems alongside the turnable and slidable driver and passenger seats, turning the TRISTAR into the perfect place for meetings. We even thought of having an espresso machine installed.
All-rounder for specialists. Its extreme off-road capability in combination with flexible transport and storage capacities make the TRISTAR into a mobile workshop, a mobile high-tech office or into a perfect surf mobile. Safe, high- quality and flexible, the new Volkswagen TRISTAR is a versatile tool for every user. Whether an architect, a film crew, service expert, landscape gardener or an expedition participant.
