Re: The "I Want to be #1" VW Mega Thread

Are the Ford numbers based on their global stats or North America?

So VW, Seat, & Skoda holding company number for 2014 at 2.7% is a good to not bad percentage?

Re: The "I Want to LIVE" VW Mega Thread

all part of VW's big No-No-I-Don't-Wanna-Go-Out-Of-Business plan...

New VW MEB electric vehicle, with up to 373 miles of range, coming in 2020
It's all part of VW's big electromobility plan.


Sep 14th 2016

yada yada crooks yada yada seems that the people in charge at VW realize that something needs to change. That's going to happen at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.

VW's new slogan is not subtle: "Think New."
During an promotional event this week in Germany focusing on electromobility, Jürgen Stackmann, a member of the VW Board of Management, said that an upcoming concept will show the world the company's new public face after a year full of "hard work" for the company. VW's new slogan for Paris is not subtle: "Think New,"

Christian Senger, the head of VW's BEV series group since January, said that VW's new production EVs will use the upcoming MEB platform. MEB is the German acronym for Modular Electric Model line-up, and the platform will be used with wide number of EVs. The MEB platform is built around the battery, and with the wheelbase increased and the overhangs shortened, interior design space is opened up. According to Senger's vision, he imagines a large HD display, haptic feedback, and gesture controls as part of the package. "The car of tomorrow must feel like a mobile device on wheels," he said...

...Which brings us back to the electric concept that VW will show in Paris...

...Stackmann said more details on the MEB EV and the future of VW will be available soon. "We want to use Paris, basically, as the lighthouse to show you where we are heading as a brand," he said. "There are so many tremendous things happening at VW at the moment. We are taking big, bold decisions fast to really get the brand moving and we are excited to show you the first glimpse of that at the Paris Motor Show." The Paris show starts October 1.
