The Salon of the car of Shanghai this few days open their doors. This quote increasingly is gaining more impact because it has emerged as the best showcase of China. Why brands do not want to miss it since it allows them to reach a very large number of customers in the country. Volkswagen is aware of their need to change their image and also should be cleaned as soon as possible, since the Dieselgate is yet to be resolved.
The strategy to use already know it: electrify its range and tipping on autonomous cars. China is one of its strengths, because the authorities of the country are providing many facilities so motorists can acquire this type of vehicle. For this reason, the group Volkswagen has confirmed that in the Chinese appointment we will see his second 100% electric model on the new platform modular MEB.
According to Kaus Bischoff, head of Volkswagen design, the model that will present the German in the Hall of the Shanghai automobile brand will be a SUV. Therefore, we should forget to see a final version of the Volkswagen I.D. Buzz. The reason you have given is that SUVS have been confirmed as the future of the automotive industry (until they burst the bubble) and must therefore meet the needs of customers first and foremost.
The Steering did not want to clarify which kind of SUV will see in Shanghai. In the appointment could find anything, because the MEB modular platform allows you to create vehicles from 4 metres to the nearly 5. What if wanted to confirm is that new electric Volkswagen SUV you already have light green to move to production, so once is presented formally, not should take a long time to reach the market.
The rumors speak of the year 2020, but can perhaps come a little to these forecasts. Either way, if the German brand wants to bet their future to this type of vehicle, you must create a believable and reasonably priced range of models. We will be attentive to the news arriving from Shanghai, because we could get a big surprise.
