Volkswagen LT46 History

The Volkswagen LT46 was a 4.6 tonne commercial vehicle which was capable of holding a lot of weight and carrying big loads. It was introduced in 1996 when Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles started as a sub division of The Volkswagen Group. The LT series was introduced in 1975, and when the second generation was introduced in 1996 the range changed to 2.6 – 4.6 tonne. This new version was a joint venture with Mercedes-Benz who had their version, the Mercedes Sprinter. The design of this version was more inline with more modern transporter vehicles and was very competitive with other rivals. The LT46 was the largest of the LT series. It ceased production in 2006 to be replaced by the Volkswagen Crafter.
