VW Under Heavy Pressure To Fix The Golf 8's Software Issues
Thursday 25/April/2019 - 08:58 PM
Hot on the heels of yesterday’s revealing spy shots، the next-generation Volkswagen Golf is making the headlines once again thanks to a new report published by Automotive News. There’s both good and bad news to share، as while the official reveal has been delayed، the car is still on track to go on sale early next year. Originally bound to debut in September at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show alongside the first electric I.D. production model، the revamped compact hatchback will be unveiled at a later date، but still before the end of 2019، as Car New said.
As for the market launch، VW brand chief Juergen Stackmann told Automotive News during Auto Shanghai in China the Golf Mk VIII will go on sale as planned at the end of February 2019. Naturally، Germany will be the first country to get the car، with other European markets to follow shortly. That being said، the production output has been drastically reduced as the new goal is to make roughly 10،000 cars at the Wolfsburg plant in Germany this year. It’s a lot less than the original plan to roll out 80،000 units at what is Europe’s biggest car plant and the place where VW currently assembles more than 2،000 Golfs each day. Edited by Ahmed Moamar
