History of the Volkswagen Beetle
On April 18, Volkswagen announced the new design, which gets rid of many of the adorable curves in favor of a flatter, edgier look that is expected to attract a more male demographic. The company went back to a more vintage look, taking advice from the original Beetle's design.
"It ties in more with our other products. It's more upscale," said Andres Valbuena, VW's lead Beetle project manager for the United States. It goes on sale this fall.
