Volkswagen LT 35 Overview

The Volkswagen LT 35 is classed as a light commercial van which was produced by the German automobile manufacturers The Volkswagen Group. This vehicle has been in production since 1975 up until 2006. These light commercial vans come under the subclass of panel van. The LT 35 panel van has since been replaced by the Crafter. They have the typical build quality of any Volkswagen, which is great but they are not the most comfortable ride. These vans were well equipped for their time, but were falling behind their competitors as time went by. Does this sound anything like your experience of the LT 35?

Volkswagen LT 35 History

The first generation (1975-95) LT light commercial vehicles were based on the Volkswagen Type 2. The LT refers to ‘Lasten Transporter’ which means Cargo Transporter in English, and the number after LT refers to the weight capability capacity, e.g. the 35 can hold up to 3.5 tonnes. These vehicles were rear wheel drive with the engine positioned underneath the cab.

The second generation (1996-2006) was a joint venture with Mercedes-Benz, who marketed the same vehicle as the Mercedes Sprinter. The VW Crafter which replaced the LT 35 in 2006, now shares the same design as the Mercedes Sprinter.
