2011 Volkswagen Go.

Italdesign Giugiaro Volkswagen Go!, premiered last March during the Geneva International Motor Show, will join the Concorso d’Eleganza taking place in Villa d’Este (Italy) from May 20th through May 22nd.

For the Volkswagen Go!, first prototype developed by Italdesign Giugiaro for Volkswagen after the takeover last year, is the debut on the road.

Go! is an MPV that continues that subject owing to its improved ergonomics and passenger room while keeping the smaller exterior size that has distinguished a large part of Giugiaro’s career. It is a vehicle that is no more than 4 metres long, is eco-friendly, and is able to guarantee the utmost in terms of ergonomics and luxury, with an abundant loading volume.

"With this exercise I wanted to continue the design of a car able to offer maximum utilisation of its interior," Giorgetto Giugiaro stated. "The project started with the 1976 New York Taxi, and continued with the 1978 Megagamma, the 1998 Structura and then came to maturity with the 2010 Emas. The Go! is less than 4 metres long, but offers more passenger room than that of a large SUV and has a 400 up to 525-litre boot, ideal for city use."

Go!, based on a platform proposal developed by Volkswagen, showing the future potential of the modular transverse architecture (MQB= Modularer Quer-Baukasten), is equipped with the electrical Blue-e-motion system totally designed and developed by Volkswagen.
Ideal for city traffic, the blue-e-motion system lets the Go! travel roughly 240 km in the combined cycle without emitting even a single gram of CO2.

It's pretty Obvious what the Volkswagen logo is (a V over a W in a blue background, sorounded by a circle). It's origin is rather mundane though. The logo was the result of an office competition to see come up with a logo. The winner of the competition (who won 50 Marks for his troubles) was an engineer named Franz Reimspiess (the same man who perfected the engine for the Beetle in the 1930's).
