Volkswagen unveils the official sketch of the interior of the eighth generation Volkswagen Golf. This predicts greater digitization and transformation of the automatic transmission gear lever.
Volkswagen is introducing the new generation of golf this fall (outside the Frankfurt motor show) this year and will only start selling next spring. Nevertheless, the automotive market is eagerly looking for information about a car, which is among the best selling in Europe and has always been the technological "trendsetter" of its class.
The interior of the new golf course will be much more minimal
At the annual meeting of its shareholders, the management of the company presented a sketch of the interior of the new golf course. It shows that they want to (almost) combine a central digital display with digital dashboard meters. Below are fairly low openings for ventilation, which will be separated by a few buttons. At least in the sketch there is no classic center console, but in the center (according to the example of some electric cars) there is an opening.
Volkswagen will of course give up the classic gear lever (with the automatic transmission) and the new switch next to the electric parking brake button. There is also a room for wireless charging of a mobile phone under the storage rooms.
Evolution of the exterior design, otherwise it is in the drives
The official outline of the exterior of the golf course, confirming the elements already announced, also revealed during the meeting. Just like the pole, the golf gets quite low headlights and a more pronounced bonnet. Formally, golf will be the evolution of the seventh generation, which is already the traditional tactic of the Volkswagen group.
Between the discs, the novelty will be a 48-volt mild hybrid system, and for the first time, golf will also be available with a hybrid drive. With this, up to 80 kilometers of electrical range can be achieved.
