The origin of all of today's vans and transporters can be traced back to the panel truck used for in-plant transport at Volkswagen's Wolfsburg plant in the late 1940s, which inspired Dutch importer Ben Pon to come up with an idea for a transport vehicle. VW developed several prototypes for a spacious vehicle suitable for transport purposes in the late 1940s. Since none of the initially desired names could be used without restriction, the new vehicle class was given the name Transporter.
