Report: Volkswagen EOS to be discontinued

2012 Volkswagen EOS

Speaking to AutoCar at the 2012 LA Auto Show, Volkswagen’s head of design Klaus Bischoff said that the EOS convertible will be discontinued in its current form and may be replaced by a larger soft-top convertible.

“The Eos will not be prolonged when it comes off the market,” Bischoff said. “Retractable hardtops are disappearing from the market now, and to be honest that’s not something I mind.”

He went onto confirm plans for a larger four-seater convertible that is currently in the wroks.

“There’s definitely room in our line-up for a larger convertible, so why not do it?” he said. “The problem with such ambitions is that all our existing factories are at full capacity, so any new additions means building new factories.”
