VW Group design boss Walter de' Silva recently told Automotive News Europe that the concept onslaught in Geneva will include models for the Seat, Skoda and VW brands, “plus one -- if not two -- for Audi.”
De' Silva added that Italdesign Giugiaro, which VW Group took over last spring, also will have two concept cars for the VW brand.
Concept cars provide a glimpse of what to expect from a company in the years to come. Many concepts are never built, usually because of financial constraints.
That is not a problem at VW.
The automaker already has approved a stunning investment budget of 51.6 billion euros (almost $71 billion) from 2011 to 2015 for vehicle development and to boost production capacity at its plants.
So stay tuned: Geneva will be another crucial step in VW's quest to become No. 1.
