VW Eos to Be Axed By the Middle of the Year

VW announced that its four-seater convertible Eos will stop its career sometime between May and June of this year, due to the decreasing interest in the market.

Featuring a folding hard-top, the VW Eos debuted in 2006 in order to rival the popular Peugeot 307CC and its successor 308CC. Since then, demand for affordable four-seater convertibles has dropped significantly in Europe, with Eos ranking 9th in its segment, a decrease of 14 per cent to 3,197 cars according to JATO Dynamics.

VW says that the Setubal plant in Portugal will not be affected after the production end of the Eos with the German giant to invest a further 677 million euros in the facility by 2018.

Apparently customers in Europe now prefer their convertibles softtop and VW will now concentrate on the Beetle Cabriolet and Golf Cabriolet as both of them finished in the first two places respectively, on last year’s sales chart.
