VOLKSWAGEN-BASED campervans could gain genuine off-road capability if a concept vehicle from the German manufacturer goes into production.


Great versatility inside will please motorcaravanners

The Alltrack concept is certainly a looker


A four-wheel-drive version of the Transporter was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show yesterday. Badged the Multivan Alltrack, it comes with a 4MOTION drivetrain and is packed with off-road technology.

VW claims the vehicle is “equipped for any task and every route.” Powered by a 2.0 TDI engine producing 180 PS, the Multivan Alltrack has a Haldex multi-plate coupling mounted to the rear axle. In addition, off-roaders will applaud the 21-degree approach angle and 15-degree departure angle.

A concept campervan that is capable on- and off-road


As well as being happy off-road, the Multivan Alltrack can also be used for moving luggage and shopping, towing trailers or as a general runaround in town, where its good looks will attract admiring glances. High-gloss, 19-inch wheels are paired with a mother of pearl effect colour, and the sophistication continues inside.


Stitched grey-blue natural leather seats contrast with the brown wood boat floor. A distinctive hand-width decorative aluminium trim strip beneath the window's edge runs at hand-rail height along both sides right into the cockpit, creating a visual link with the central infotainment system. Its functions are accessed via a large, eight-inch touchscreen, while sound is delivered by a Dynaudio surround sound system with centre speaker.

High end details abound within this VW concept


Of great interest to converters and motorcaravanners alike will be the Volkswagen Multivan Alltrack’s sturdy floor track system, which gives the interior true versatility. This track system serves as a base for movable individual seats and can also be used to securely mount a mobile kitchen module; this can be located either on the left-hand side of the vehicle or behind the front seats.


Along with a cooling box, the kitchen module also provides a gas cooker and a sink with a fresh water tank, and is easy to install or modify. It can be individually removed for external use, or the entire module can be stowed in the garage if it will not be needed during an upcoming journey.

Great versatility inside this VW will please motorcaravanners


As this is a concept vehicle, there’s no indication of how much the Multivan Alltrack will cost, but VW is keen to emphasise that it has been developed in response to genuine customer demand – one in five commercial vehicles sold by VW in Europe is ordered with all-wheel drive. This indicates that a production version could be a possibility. Watch this space!
