We will systematically press ahead with our model initiative in 2014 and modernize and expand our offering by introducing attractive new vehicles. Priority will always be given to what our customers want. We are also successively expanding our portfolio of vehicles equipped with alternative drive systems powered by gas or electricity.
Following on the heels of the e-up!, our first production vehicle to run on electrical power that we launched in 2013, we will also introduce the Golf GTE with a plug-in hybrid drive in 2014 to complement the e-Golf, the electric version of our bestseller. Furthermore, the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand will enlarge the Golf family by adding the Golf Sportsvan, the successor to the Golf Plus. In addition, the brand will unveil the new generation of the Passat saloon and the Passat estate.
