65 years of the Bulli!

Production of the Bulli started 65 years ago at the factory in Hannover, and has now produced 9.2 million!

The legendary VW T2, lovingly known as the Bulli by fans, has been produced at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles' plant in Hannover-Stocken since 1956.

The production operation at the Hannover plant is currently being modernised and re-organised to prepare for production of conventional, plug-in hybrid and fully electric drive system vehicles for the first time. The launch of the new Multivan this year and ID.BUZZ in 2022 has brought this preparation forward faster than anticipated.

"We can look back with pride on what we have achieved here in Hannover. The history of the plant is as unique as the Bulli itself - and as the people who have built millions of these vehicles here... we're looking to the future on this site, with the launch of the new Multivan this year and the ID.BUZZ from 2022." says Carsten Intra, Chairman, Brand Management Board, VWCV.

At Breeze Van Centres we'd like to wish the Bulli and the team at Hannover a very happy 65th Anniversary! A lot of hard work has gone into the production of this plant, and we're very proud to be a part of it.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
