A high-ranking Volkswagen executive promises the Golf 8 will “set new standards” when it debuts in 2019.
Speaking to Automotive News Europe, Ralf Brandstätter, the VW brand’s chief operating officer, said the next-generation version of the automaker’s popular hatchback would be “in a class of its own”.
Brandstätter made mention of the Golf 8 while outlining the Wolfsburg-based automaker’s plans for Europe in 2019.
“We will complete the year with the next generation of the Golf, which will set new standards. The Golf is in a class of its own, and I am sure the new generation will convince our customers of that again,” the 49-year-old said.
“Toward the end of the year, production of the all-electric ID Neo begins and, last but not least, we will add an emotional model – the T-Roc SUV cabrio,” Brandstätter revealed.
In October 2018, Volkswagen seemingly revealed the taillamp design of the new Golf.
