New Beetle Next Generation

New Beetle Next Generation

http://www.luanpa.net

The Volkswagen Official explain that the next generation of the New Beetle will be available next year, it  will be focused more on the dynamics rather than on retro style. The serial version of the new Beetle will be showed at the Motor Los Angeles Show in November 2010, and its sales will begin in May 2011 both in the U.S. and Europe.

A little later will appear convertible version of the compact first, Like today’s version the new will also be assembled in VW’s factory in Puebla, Mexico, together with the VW Jetta. Both cars will be on a common platform and will have a number of other common parts and engines. The new platform will give the Beetle a wider track and longer wheelbase than today’s model. This will result in better dynamics and better road holding of the second generation Beetle.

The design of the car will have to do with a concept from 2005 called Ragste, basic design will continue to recall the original Volkswagen Beetle, round headlights and tail lights. Suspension will be MacPherson front and rear torsion. The wider track and longer wheelbase will increase the space and the interior volume, but relatively low roof will again create problems for the heads of higher passenger. Luggage storage will be increased to 250 liters.

The engine of New Beetle will be powered by gasoline and diesel engine that is base on gasoline will be 1.2 liters with 105 hp power, after 1.4 with power 160 hp, while the top will be two-liters unit with 210 hp power. Only for the U.S. version there will be a five-cylinder and 2.5 liters volume, which will power 170 hp. Among the diesel engines we will see a volume of 1.6 liters and 105 hp output and two-liters with 140 hp power. At a later stage we will see a hybrid version of a system as shown in Detroit in January Jetta CC – gas turbine engine compressor power with 150 hp and volume of 1.4 liters and an electric motor with output of 27 hp

2. Thou shall speak of Volkswagen several times daily and of a positive manner.
3. Thou shall enjoy the daily task involved in maintaining and clean one's Volkswagen.
4. Thou shall take interest in Germany. Interest in it's people and it's culture.
5. Thou shall spread the good gospel of Volkswagen, being of fine quality and dependability, to the blind man.
6. Thou shall learn, and take into study, Volkswagen's history.
7. Thou shall stand up for the values and beliefs of Volkswagen - of company, employees, owners, and of the fellow Volkswagenist.
8. Thou shall never pass another Volkswagen in distress. Love thy brother of both water and air.

On the road of life, there are owners and there are followers.

Eco-Friendly New beetle tour

Eco-Friendly New beetle tour

WORCESTER — Carrick McCullough has had a whirlwind couple of days and is about to have a whirlwind couple of months. Fresh off a taping of “The Bonnie Hunt Show” in Los Angeles on Tuesday, 9-year-old Carrick and his family are about to embark on a vegetable-oil-fueled cross-country trip to promote green causes and distribute their videos, which have developed a sizable following on the Internet.

Carrick and his father, Colin McCullough of Sutton, were at the University of Massachusetts Medical School yesterday as part of the school’s annual Earth Day event. The McCulloughs had their 2000 Volkswagen New Beetle on display in front of the school, and several eco-friendly groups and vendors set up shop inside the school.

The VW’s diesel engine gets 50 miles per gallon, but has been modified to run on vegetable oil. In about a week and a half, Carrick, Colin and the other half of the McCulloughs — Mr. McCullough’s wife, Jennifer, and other son, Gareth, will pile into the VW and take two months to drive across the country, stopping at points of significance to environmental causes and green industry. Carrick said he particularly looks forward to stopping by the Tesla dealership in Los Angeles. The Tesla Roadster, an all-electric sports car, reaches 60 mph in less than four seconds and has a range of around 220 miles per charge. He was at the taping of “The Bonnie Hunt Show” because she wanted to give ecologically friendly tips. “Bonnie was really nice,” Carrick said. “It was kinda fun. I didn’t have time to be scared.” He said he talked about small things people can do, like getting a home energy audit. “Things like sealing air leaks, putting in insulation, compact fluorescent light bulbs,” Carrick said.

Mr. McCullough said Carrick has taken a real interest in green causes, and when he and his son go on speaking tours, kids relate to him in a way that they just can’t with an adult. Vasilios “Bill” Tsaknopoulos, director of auxiliary services at the medical school, said vendors of everything from eco-friendly soap to clothing set up shop at the Earth Day event. As interest in green causes and products has grown, he said, so has the annual event now in its fourth year. “It heightens everyone’s awareness,” he said. He said the event dovetails nicely with the college’s efforts at energy efficiency: For example, the college is trying to achieve LEED Silver certification for one of its new buildings, and it will try for the same certification for another planned research center. Also, the school hopes to soon be recycling 40 percent to 50 percent of the trash it generates, up from its current 25 percent, he said. Mr. Tsaknopoulos said having an event like yesterday’s helps the staff at the school start thinking about what can be done toward achieving the energy efficiency goals the school has set. “What this does is that it allows our staff to come down and see what’s going on,” Mr. Tsaknopoulos said. “Then they’ll start asking, ‘What if?’ or ‘Can we?’ ”

 The McCulloughs’ Web site, www.ourrenewablenation.org , promotes eco-friendly, renewable energy, and sustainable design and living causes, and also has posted videos. They’re paying for their trip through donations, which can be made via the Web site.

Barbie Beetle

HERNDON, Virginia — Barbie now has her choice of at least two rides as she celebrates her 50th anniversary this week. Volkswagen of America has rolled out a customized dolled up with pink paint, rhinestones and a motorized vanity in the trunk. Last week, Fiat and Mattel presented a shocking pink Fiat 500 in honor of Barbie's golden anniversary New Beetle convertible

VW put its Malibu Barbie New Beetle on display at the Malibu Dream House, a real-life home decked out for Barbie's birthday. The house includes a chandelier made of her hair.

The Barbie New Beetle convertible gets a white leather interior and convertible top, hand-stitched floor mats and pink quilted leather door pockets and arm rests. "Even the dipstick is painted to resemble her favorite lipstick," VW of America said in a statement.

Car customizers including ABD Racing Werks, Katzkin Leather and Interiors and FoamMolders worked their magic on the Barbie New Beetle.

It's perhaps fitting that a German automaker decided to roll out a Barbie-themed vehicle.

According to the new book by Robin Gerber, Barbie and Ruth: The Story of the World's Most Famous Doll and the Woman Who Created Her, Barbie may have some German roots. The book says that Barbie's creator, Ruth Handler, noticed that her daughter, Barbara, was "fascinated with a buxom doll that Gerber said was based on a female German cartoon character, named Lilli, who used sex to get what she wanted." Handler took the doll back to the U.S. and insisted that Mattel designers use it for inspiration.

Barney's New beetle

Barney's Holiday campaign

source ; www.vortex.com

HERNDON, Va. – Volkswagen of America, Inc. announced today its partnership with Barneys New York for the retailer’s “Peace and Love: Have a Hippie Holiday” campaign, a tribute to the explosive creativity and iconic designs of the 1960’s. As a focal point for the campaign, Volkswagen and Barneys Creative Director Simon Doonan have commissioned New York artist John-Paul Philippe to custom paint a one-of-a-kind New Beetle inspired by the decade and its indelible iconography. “Volkswagen is proud to be recognized by Barneys New York and Simon Doonan as an iconic brand and an essential component in honoring classic 1960’s design and culture,” said Tim Ellis, Vice President of Marketing at Volkswagen of America. “The story of the New Beetle and the role it continues to play as a beacon of pop culture shows that smart, functional design can transcend time.” “While the counterculture of the late ’60s produced a host of cultural icons, none captured the vibe more poignantly than the Volkswagen Beetle,” says Doonan. “

The custom-painted New Beetle imparts to the campaign a modern and fresh take on something familiar and loved, while still capturing the essence of the era.” The one-of-a-kind New Beetle is featured in imagery in all of Barneys holiday marketing materials including windows, shopping bags, holiday mailers and gift cards. Also during the holiday season, the Barneys flagship Manhattan store will carry a limited edition Antique Jewel Box sterling silver cufflinks in the shape of 1974 Volkswagen Beetles designed by the Caroline Collection. After making the rounds on the fashion circuit in New York City, including serving as Simon Doonan’s official transportation at the Bryant Park fashion shows during New York Fashion Week, the New Beetle will be on display outside Barneys.

 The installation window display will be constructed from November 10-14, and will remain through the end of the year. Barneys, in partnership with Volkswagen of America will cap off the holiday season in style by giving away the featured vehicle. Tickets will be available to holiday shoppers in-store and online, with a suggested price of $100.00 and proceeds will benefit the Carbon Fund (carbonfund.org). Volkswagen and the Carbon Fund created the Carbon Neutral Project in September 2007 and so far, 278,496 trees have been planted in the Volkswagen Forest in the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley, accounting for 413,609 tons of carbon that the Volkswagen community has offset to date.

The partnership with Barneys caps off a year of celebration for the New Beetle’s 10-year anniversary. Originally unveiled as a design study car called “Concept 1” at the North American International Auto Show in 1994, the New Beetle made its worldwide debut in 1998. Over the last decade the New Beetle has solidified its place in American pop culture, transcending consumers’ age, income, education and gender to connect classic Beetle enthusiasts with contemporary audiences.
