The head of Volkswagen group Martin Winterkorn has shared his ideas of the new product of the largest car companies. In his interview to some German magazine he made the plans concerning a new super-budget car open to the public. Winterkorn noticed that he had already stated the price for a new coming economy model. The limit of €6000 - €7000 is the most acceptable according to the head of Volkswagen group. According to the official data, more than three million cars are sold every year in the Chinese region, taken separately.
Winterkorn noticed that Volkswagen will cooperate closely with the Chinese partner in creating a new model. He added that the company has to adapt to the changing world and be open to new methods of engine’s creating. The main design work on the new model is most likely to begin in Germany. There the engineers hope to come to the conclusion on the type of the future engine. After that the following project work will be given on to Chinese partners. The company also plans that the lineup will be produced on the plants of China.
The united plants in China have already been set up. The companies SAIC and FAW are in close cooperation with the German management segments and factories.
Previously, head of engineering department of Volkswagen group claimed that the future model would be available in different types of the body. But the overall design of the car wouldn’t look cheap. On the other hand, the interior and exterior are planned to look as decent as possible.
This month it was also noticed that recent 12-brand lineup of Volkswagen cars would definitely be wider than it was. So the budget-oriented trend of the company will definitely find its expression.
