    Volkswagen Type 2 returns to Europe via Brazil

    Filed under: Classics, Minivan/Van, Europe, Plants/Manufacturing, Volkswagen

    Volkswagen buyers in the Netherlands will soon have the opportunity to get their hands on a brand-new 2012 Volkswagen Type 2 Microbus. That's right, the original hippie van will be available brand-new in Holland starting soon.

    How is that possible? Well, while the buses went out of production a long time ago in Europe and the states, South Americans have been enjoying unfettered access to the Type 2 (currently sold there as the Kombi) for decades. The Type 2s slated for the streets of Holland will be built and sold in Brazil with their South American-market counterparts and shipped to the Dutch market.

    For now, the campers are only scheduled to be available in Holland, but they'll be eligible for registration anywhere within the European Union. We think things will stay that way, so don't expect any to make it Stateside.Volkswagen Type 2 returns to Europe via Brazil originally appeared on Autoblog on Sat, 12 Nov 2011 14:03:00 EST.
