The name transporter is the name that Volkswagen has marketed its van vehicles as but the vehicle has many official and unofficial names like the T-series, Type 2, microbus, Kombi or van. The original Type 2 was one of the first mass market vehicles to offer a van body style when launched in 1950. The vehicles are fondly remembered as part of the hippie movement. Many Volkswagen Transporter parts changed over the years but the basic appearance remained the same. The earliest models have a split windshield and swing-axles. There were also pickup and panel van versions. The most popular tend to be the 21 or 23 window varieties. The vans were made in Brazil through 2013, having switched to water-cooling during the 2006 model year.
