VW Beetle: World premiere on 18th April, MTV-style

VW Beetle

VW will debut the new VW Beetle on 18th April during a 24 hour event starting in Shanghai.

Volkswagen announced today that they will officially unveil the next generation Beetle on April 18th during a 24 hour event starting in Shanghai, China, then moving on to Berlin, Germany and finally in New York City. In partnership with MTV, VW will pull out all the stops with headliner Black Eyed Peas playing in New York.

VW will officially drop the “New” designation and instead will call the next generation version of their iconic car “The Beetle”. Lower, wider and with a nod to the very early aircooled prototype Beetles, this new model will be the sportiest and most aggressive Beetle yet. We expect three engine choices (2.5 inline-5, TDI and 2.0T) and a variety of different models from basic to full sport turbo models. This new version of the Beetle will be the most customizable yet, with a wide variety of options so customers can tweak their Beetle to their own tastes.
