LEAKED: This Is The All-New 2020 Volkswagen Golf - CarBuzz

VOW

2019 promises to be a landmark year for Volkswagen, with the launch of the brand's first electric I.D. We know production is starting this June, but the only official images VW has released so far are some vague design sketches teasing what the 2020 Golf will look like. But thanks to leaked photos posted by Instagram user johannes.vag, we’re getting an early look at the all-new Golf ahead of its official reveal. The photos allegedly show the eighth-generation VW Golf virtually undisguised outside a McDonald's restaurant while the test driver stopped for lunch. Much like the 2020 Porsche 911, the new Golf’s design changes aren’t very dramatic since Volkswagen understandably doesn't want to mess with a successful formula since the iconic hatchback's inception in 1974. As expected, we’re looking at an evolutionary update compared to the current seventh-generation model.

VOW

In an interview late last year, Group CIO Martin Hofmann talks about the burden of VW’s technological legacy, cultural change within the company and the opportunities afforded by new technologies. Mr. Hofmann, the Volkswagen Group has deliberately decided against establishing a board-level digitalization and IT division. What consequences and challenges does this pose for Group IT?

Small electric cars may be unaffordable for some: VW chairman to newspaper

VOW

Small electric cars may be unaffordable for some: VW chairman to newspaper. BERLIN (Reuters) - The move to electric vehicles will make cars significantly more expensive, meaning they may become unaffordable for people on low incomes in the future, the chairman of Volkswagen said in an interview published on Sunday. The German carmaker is still reeling from a 2015 scandal over cheating on emissions tests and needs to ramp up production of electric vehicles to meet toughened European emmissions-cutting targets. "We have the clear goal of making electromobility accessible to a broad section of the population, that is to make it affordable," Hans-Dieter Poetsch told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper. But he said it could be difficult to maintain the prices of many entry-level vehicles.

REVIEW: VW Alltrack a cure for the common crossover

VOW

Volkswagen has kept the Alltrack's grille simple and clean, resisting the urge to follow the raging razorblade trend that seems to be so popular these days. The Alltrack offers a pleasing environment that features a clean, straightforward, uncluttered design, although a little more cabin storage space would be a welcome addition. It’s all the practicality, but with the pleasure of driving a car. However, the Alltrack was launched a few years ago, and everywhere I look people are still buying crossovers. Volkswagen is one of the last manufacturers on the market to resist the urge for over-styling. As the Alltrack is part of the Golf lineup, that means a pleasantly bland appearance, with squarish lines and a minimum of add-ons.
