We told you a couple weeks back that more Up!
variants are on the way
, and now we know what's coming soon to an auto show
near you. The automaker from Wolfsburg is set to unveil an Up!-based minivan
in Tokyo, followed by a plug-in hybrid
sedan at Los Angeles. Since the goal of the Up! concept unveiled in Frankfurt is to give VW
a low-cost, rear engine, affordable vehicle, both the minivan and plug-in hybrid should carry a meager price tag if they come to production. Both vehicles should also provide terrific fuel economy
too, with the plug-in hybrid possibly approaching the lofty 100 mpg mark. We're no experts, but we think there is a market for affordable, 100 mpg vehicles
with seating for four.
