Next Volkswagen (VW) Beetle May Get SUV, Roadster Styling

Volkswagen Ragster Concept According to the Channel4, VW is planning to launch the successor of new Beetle by 2011. Unlike the current Beetle which is available in only two body styles, the coupe and cabrio, the next generation Beetle will be a multi-variant version. By this we mean that future holds a two-seat Beetle roadster just like the 2005 Ragster concept, an SUV-type Beetle similar to the 2000 Beetle Dune concept and of course, a standard version.

The new 2011 Beetle model is expected to be based on the current fifth gen Golf/Rabbit platform, with technical development happening in Germany, styling in California and final construction at Mexico.

We may not be a potential customer for Beetle SUV but definately would love to see one. With BMW MINI steadily churning out new variants, its good that the competition is finally waking up.
