Here is some exciting news for all of you Volkswagen Golf fans – the seventh-generation model is in the works and is scheduled to arrive at the “end of 2012 or early 2013,” according to a V-Dub spokesman.
According to Reuters, the spokesman was responding to an earlier report by Automobilwoche that said a person close to VW’s CEO said that the Golf model would arrive in showrooms in November 2012.
While we have little details on the new Golf, it is reported that the Volkswagen Golf MK VII will be the first Volkswagen model to be built on a new cost-saving modular transverse platform known internally as ‘MQB.’ Volkswagen expects to save in the double-digit percentage range thanks to a new production process that is different from the previous vehicle platform. Now we’re not sure if that will drive down the price of the new Golf, but it would be nice.
The MQB platform will eventually be used to build some 3 million vehicles by Volkswagen Group every year.
