Volkswagen is really serious about taking over Toyota. After the launch of the new UP! Concept, the company has announced that they intend creating more versions of the Concept.

Volkswagen AG Chairman Martin Winterkorn said that the new Up! Concept will go into production in a couple years. A second concept version, sharing the New Small Family platform, will debut in Tokyo, next month, while a third variant is on tap for November’s auto show in Los Angeles. Eventually, added Winterkorn, there could even be a fourth UP! model, and versions sold through other VWAG brands, such as Seat or Skoda.

Volkswagen also confirmed that the company is working on several new pickups, but they have no intention on bringing them into the States.

In the future Volkswagen will focus on four core product segments: compact sedans, such as the Jetta; compact SUVs, like the Tiguan; mid-size sedans, like the Passat and mid-size SUVs, such as the Touareg.
