VW’s Electrifying Future!

By cmathias | Posted in Volkswagen, VW Model News on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019 at 3:32 PM

We’re seeing more and more signs of VW’s seemingly all electric future and we’re excited. The VW Group plans to release 70 electric models over the next 10 years. While other car brands are toying with hydrogen, hybrids, and plug ins, VW plans to focus solely on electric vehicles, especially after the diesel emissions scandal, they see that this is the only way to make a stand.

According to CNN, “Purely electric vehicles allow VW designers to take full advantage of the flexibility electric power offers. Electric motors are small and can be placed out near the wheels while the big and heavy battery packs can be shaped to fit down in the floor. This allows a car like the ID to have the interior space of a mid-sized VW Passat within the exterior dimensions of a compact Golf.”

The electric drive technology also makes it easier to create different body styles using the same basic engineering, which is referred to as platform-sharing.

What do you think of the electric future? Are you a fan of the looks of the new models? We love them and are excited to see what’s in store for our future showroom!!

The 2020 VW Golf Spied In Person!!

By cmathias | Posted in VW Model News on Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 at 9:58 AM

The 2020 VW Golf was spied in person the other day! What do you think of it? VW announced plans to start in June, and from the looks of the photo, it seems to have an Audi type feel. According to Motor1: “Although not noticeable, a minor bump in size is expected from the eighth generation, which corroborated with better packaging enabled by the updated MQB platform, should translate into a more spacious interior. The revised hardware might enable a minor weight loss, although nothing to write home about”
