Beetle fans, mark your calendars for 2012!
What’s so important about 2012, you ask? Well, according to Stefan Jacoby, CEO and president of Volkswagen Group of America, that’s the year when the latest incarnation of the transcendent car will be released.
In addition to his bold proclamation that the new Beetle is set to arrive in 2012, Jacoby also promises that it will be more spacious than any other Beetle Volkswagen’s ever released.
Whether that means that the venerable car will come in a bigger package is not far out of the question now, especially when you take into account that the Beetle has always been considered a classic compact car.
For a while now, Volkswagen has made it known of its goal to become the biggest car manufacturer in the world and the impending release of the new Beetle should validate VW’s intentions of global auto domination.
With the new Beetle set to lead the charge, VW is making an extra effort to cater to the comments of Beetle-holics regarding the rather cramped rear seats of the last generation Beetle.
As one of the most iconic cars in the history of the world, it’s hard to think of another vehicle that holds the same passionate following as that of the Beetle. So you can bet that if VW has any plans of overtaking the Toyotas and GMs of the world, they’re ambitions rest on how the public reacts to the new Beetle.
From the looks of things, it seems that VW understands all the concerns and are working tirelessly to create a new Beetle that will carry on the legacy of its predecessors.
