Volkswagen Giugiaro Go Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Now that Italdesign Giugiaro is part of the larger Volkswagen Group, the famed design house has worked up a pair of VW-badged concepts for the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. In addition to the smaller Tex hatchback, Giugiaro has created the Go! MPV, giving us a glimpse at what a people-mover for The People could look like in the future.

Like the Tex, the Go! rides on Volkswagen's new modular transverse architecture which could accommodate a wide range of powertrain options. Here, the Go! is powered by the automaker's Blue-e-motion EV technology, and according to Volkswagen, the concept can travel about 150 miles on electric power alone.

The Go! is full of interesting design quirks, such as rear doors that push backwards before sliding back parallel to the vehicle, a large glass greenhouse and a high seating position. See for yourself in our gallery of high-resolution live shots below.

      the front is bland and the back looks like a '01 Opel Corsa. These Giugiaro concepts are utterly lifeless as is, and VW being VW will find a way of toning them down even more for production. I'm just struggling to see how.

      Dear VW, I love your concepts. With that said, would you please actually MAKE these cars now? You have teased us for years with the BlueSport and I am salivating at the opportunity to buy it here in the USA. When is it coming???? Make that car already!!

      The overall design appears very nice. It looks like a sveltely smoothed over Golf. I'd like to have one.

      Not sure how those mid-side-&-back-window objects help this thing. They almost seem like afterthoughts to solve an accidental creation problem. In fact they're so distracting that they speak louder than the entire design. I hope those things deliver for all the attention they'll garner.

      I like it. Make it a small TSI gasoline biased toward MPG than sporty power, or a small diesel with a 6 speed MANUAL transmission. Please, no hybrid or 100% "e."
      Maybe in 15 years we'll see it in the US.
