From mono-radio to online connectivity – the Golf radio generations

The Golf is a reflection of his time. No other high-volume model in the world has been offered under the same name for more than 40 years. Generation-by-generation the infotainment reflects the status quo of progress. The spectrum ranges from simple mono-radio (1974) to the current multimedia system with permanent online connection. If you look at this infotainment development, you open one time capsule after another, travelling from the past into the present.

“We share a love of cars.”

At Volkswagen, designing a new model always involves a large team. That was no different in the case of the new Golf: designers from a diverse range of disciplines helped to shape the car and contributed to the design of the Golf with their own individual skills, experience and passions. We spent a day with two such designers, discovering what moves them, what inspires them, and what drives them. “People shaping the Golf”, part 3 – Astrid Göring and Tomasz Bachorski on their favourite places in Wolfsburg and Braunschweig.

Electric mobility for all: Volkswagen is launching five electrified Golf models

With the models of the ID family Volkswagen continues to drive forward its electrification campaign and in parallel is launching an entirely new spectrum of innovative hybrid drive systems for its established product range. With three new eTSI engines (48V mild hybrid) and two new plug-in hybrid drives – Golf eHybrid and Golf GTE - , the Golf is now the Volkswagen model line with the most diverse hybrid spectrum. Together with the new, all-electric ID.3, for which there will be three different battery sizes, Volkswagen will therefore offer one of the most systematically electrified compact class vehicle ranges in the world.
