VW Will Not Replace the Eos Convertible

VW head of design Klaus Bischoff confirmed to Autocar at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week that the automaker has no plans for a new VW Eos hardtop convertible. "The Eos will not be prolonged when it comes off the market. Retractable hardtops are disappearing from the market now, and to be honest that's not something I mind," Bischoff stated.

Instead of building a new Eos, Bischoff confirmed that VW is working on a larger four-seater convertible with a sof-top. "There's definitely room in our line-up for a larger convertible, so why not do it?" he said. "The problem with such ambitions is that all our existing factories are at full capacity, so any new additions means building new factories."
