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.
