New Beetle mania

New Beetle Mania

The Volkswagen New Beetle has been well loved in the U.S. since its launch in 1998, but like any car that has been on the market nearly unchanged for over a decade, the Bug is starting to get a little long in the tooth. But the wait for a new model will likely be worth it for Bug-lovers as the next-gen car will likely spawn two models.

The next Beetle is expected to hit our shores in 2010 or 2011, and will ride on the same platform as the next-generation Golf – due out in 2010. That model would be similar to size to the current car, and will offer a hybrid drivetrain.

To slot in below that car, Motor Trend says that VW is also considering building a smaller version of the Bug based on the up! citycar platform. Its styling would be unmistakably Beetle and could even include a rear-engine layout – a throwback to the original car.

If VW decides to green light a second Beetle model, it would essentially create a sub-brand for VW — similar to Toyota's Scion – and could spawn even more models in the future.
