The LT31 was one of the original vehicles in the LT-Series, introduced in 1975 and produced until the end of the LT-Series in 2006.

Volkswagen LT31 History

The first generation (1975-95) of the Volkswagen LT31 was introduced in 1975, and was one of the original versions of the LT-series. They were produced as replacements for the ageing Type 2 and were available in several different versions. They received a facelift in 1986 which mainly affected the headlights and again in 1993 with the main change affecting the grille design. The second generation (1996-2006) saw the introduction of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles who would produce all future VW commercial vehicles. This version was a joint venture between VW and Mercedes, who had their own version, the Mercedes Sprinter. This new design brought this vehicle up to date with current competitors. It was discontinued in 2006 when the Volkswagen Crafter was introduced.
