New VW Microbus Coming to the US
Accoring to previous reports, a conventional powered version is believed to be produced at VW’s plant in Puebla, Mexico, where the third-generation Beetle is made using VW’s latest modular platform. That’s because the Microbus successor is actually much smaller than you’d think. At just 3,99 meters in length, it more of a car for the family than one for your band and their equipment.
InautoNews recently reported that the new Microbus is indeed earmarked for the US market, as the automaker tries to boost its sales there past the 1 million mark by 2018. “If that could come into the market at some point in the future, that would be great. Our first focus is very much making sure we expand the footprint of the existing products. We’re growing the business with Passat right now”, said the VW US chief executive officer, Jonathan Browning.
