Historical
: The decision to manufacture a vehicle with a higher payload than the 1.000 kg of the VW Transporter was made in the early 1970s. A prototype was shown in 1973, and on April 14th 1975 the LT series with the models LT 28 and LT 31 was introduced. The LT 35 came on the market the following year.
Both petrol and diesel-engined versions were available. The 2 liter petrol engine came from the contemporary Audi 100. The early diesel-equipped models had a British Perkins 2.7 liter engine developing 65 hp. The LT series was the first VW to be equipped with a diesel engine.
A major up-date occurred in 1996 when the LT left the classic One-Box-Design the same way as the smaller
T4. Power was provided by a natural aspired diesel engine or TDI-engines ranging from 75 to 130 HP, and three different wheel bases became available.
In 2002 a 2.8 liter 4-cylinder diesel with 158 HP became available.
