The Taigun is 3859mm long, 1728mm wide, and 1570mm tall. The little turbo engine displaces only 1L and promises a range of 1000km for the vehicle. The car can reach 100kph in 9.2 seconds making for decent performance.

The engine is mated with a 6-speed manual transmission. The concept has 17-inch wheels and a very attractive overall design on the inside and out. There is no indication of when or if the Taigun will come to market.

2015 Volkswagen Golf TSI 1.8T Manual Tested: Even the Basic Model is a World-Beater

Oct 27 2014 5:47pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

To be clear, our grumbling isn’t really aimed at the gearbox or the clutch, which are light and precise and rewarding to use, but rather VW’s product planning for its Americ ...

Fuel cells will flop outside Japan, says VW

Sep 12 2014 8:38am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Japan, Technology, Volkswagen, Electric "It may fly within Japan, but not globally," VW's Shoji said. It's long been battered into our beleaguered auto writer brains that the ultimate future source of motivation for tomorrow's cars and trucks is not gasoline, diesel, electricity, natural gas, propane or solar power - it's the hydrogen fuel cell.

As we told you back in June, Global Rallycross is preparing for a Beetle infestation. The clip below provides a closer look at VW’s super-mega-bad-ass GRC Beetle as it rips and snorts around a black lake at the hands of Tanner Foust. The video also shows off the mega-Beetle’s startup sequence, some engine plumbing all aglow, fire-breathing exhaust pipes, and some good-ol’ slow-motion four-wheel drifts. Also, you shouldn’t call the car Herbie, apparently. VW spokesman Mark ...
