Let's Tour The VW Autostadt Museum So You Can See How Clever It Is

The massive VW factory at Wolfsburg is nothing like I imagined. Sure, the building itself is familiar enough from old pictures, long massive brick blocks sprawling under four massive smokestacks. But I sure as hell didn’t expect the factory to be somehow surrounded by a massive, lovely park. But it is. » 8/20/15 9:25pm 8/20/15 9:25pm

The Volkswagen e-Golf Is About As Normal As Electric Cars Can Get

People who prefer consistency over radical new ideas love the Volkswagen Golf, and the electric version certainly won’t disappoint them, because it’s a Golf. No less, no more. That turned out to be its greatest strength and its greatest weakness at the same time. http://jalopnik.com/the-volkswagen... » 7/14/15 1:21pm 7/14/15 1:21pm

Guess What's Under The Hood Of This Orthodontist-Designed Car

For the second time this week, I find myself reeling from the buzz of learning about another obscure car I never knew existed. This one also hails from South America, and while it’s still satisfyingly weird, inside there’s some very familiar oily bits. The car is called the Emis Art, and who knows what makes it so… » 6/27/15 9:43am 6/27/15 9:43am

BMW, Audi, And Mercedes-Benz Want To Buy Nokia’s Maps To Fend Off Google

Keeping with old the adage of the enemy of my enemy is my friend, Germany’s Big Three are working together to buy a controlling stake in Nokia’s Here mapping unit. The move is partially to keep it out of the hands of Google, Apple, or Facebook, but mainly to give the automakers a leg up on both self-driving vehicles… » 5/06/15 6:17pm 5/06/15 6:17pm

Volkswagen To Formula One Rumors Go Nuts After Piëch's Resignation

Volkswagen is almost everywhere! They’re truly the People’s Race Car in some respects. They’re just not in Formula One. Rumors of a VAG-backed F1 effort pop up from time to time, most recently under the Audi brand. Now that supposedly anti-Ecclestone chairman Ferdinand Piëch is out, will we see VW in F1?

​I Just Want To Shove A Mattress In The New VW Transporter And Drive

I'm sure Volkswagen has a perfectly good business case to explain why it doesn't sell the Transporter in the U.S. I don't really care, because all I can think about is driving the new T6 cross-country and living inside, particularly now that I know the internal codename VW uses for its new diesel engine. » 4/15/15 10:30pm 4/15/15 10:30pm

The Volkswagen Golf R400 May Be Coming To A Dealer Near You 

Our collective reaction to Volkswagen's R400 reveal at the L.A. Auto Show was something along the lines of, "That's great, thanks for teasing us with something we can't buy." But ultra-bonkers hot-hatch fans shouldn't give up hope quite yet. VW's still making the case on whether or not to send the R400 to our shores. » 1/20/15 7:05pm 1/20/15 7:05pm

For a Totally Reasonable $220K, You Can Have This VW Type 2 Limo         + the Business That Owns It

I really like Type 2s. A common daydream for me involves the barn-find of an original 21 or 23-window or truck. I can't explain in words my desire for a first generation Type 2 double-cab truck. If I had the money, I'd have a fleet of them. » 1/16/15 10:38am 1/16/15 10:38am

This Lego VW Type 2 T1 Bus is absolutely incredible!!

Having already built what is probably the coolest Lego Beetle that ever existed, builder Sheepo has churned out another spectacular Technic model. Normally, Technic models barely come close to looking the part, but this thing is unmistakable as the hippie van of the 60's. If the looks weren't enough for you this… » 10/30/14 7:48am 10/30/14 7:48am
