Vw to discontinue the Eos and replace it with a larger soft-top

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 5, 2012

The VW Eos will likely continue with a larger soft-top, which replaces the existing form, according to Volkswagen head of design Klaus Bischoff. He was present during the Los Angeles Auto Show launch of the VW Beetle Cabriolet, which is the latest addition to VW’s open-top line-up that also includes the Eos and Golf.

He said that the Eos will not be prolonged when it stops being offered in the market. He said that the market has lost sight of the retractable hardtops so this is far from his mind.

Bischoff confirmed that VW is planning to create a bigger, full-size four-seater convertible – one of the 100 design studies that his team is presently developing. He added that there’s room for a larger convertible in its lineup so it has every reason to do it.

He explained that since VW’s factories are already at full capacity, this means that the automaker will have to open new plants.
