The Story of VW's Beetle


Read more

CNET Finds 2015 VW e-Golf is Your Usual Compact EV


Read more

VW is really late to the US full-EV party, where models like the Nissan Leaf have gained serious popularity in the last few years.

Its battery powered entry is the e-Golf, and in true VW spirit, you get what you (expect to) pay for. If you’re not at all into your electric vehicle looking weird or unusual (like the Leaf does), then the look of the e-Golf will be refreshing.

You really have to be a bit of a nerd to notice anything different about it, aside from the complete lack of engine noise.

VW Calls on Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock for German e-Golf ad


Read more

Star Trek made William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy super-famous, though not necessarily by their real names.

Man Behind the Original VW Beach Buggy Explains his Creation


Read more

The VW-based dune/beach buggy concept could not have come from anywhere else but California. The original idea came to Bruce Meyers in the early 1960s, and by 1965 he had already hand-built 12 prototypes in his shop – he was formerly a boat builder with a background as an engineer and artist, and he admits that he “spent a lot of time in school.”
