Leaked pictures of the upcoming ID 4 give us a glimpse of the newest electric addition to the VW family.
Volkswagen have had their V6 Amarok advert pulled from the airwaves following a ruling from the Advertising Regulatory Board.
A drunken driver spent his Sunday morning ramming into a row of cars at a dealership in Johannesburg, and the CCTV footage of the incident isn’t pretty.
VW has hardly recovered from 2015’s #dieselgate, and already another scandal concerning emissions has reared its ugly head.
The Volkswagen scandal could be considered the worst ever in the 130 years of automotive industry. The thing is, they kind of knew it was going to happen.
VW are in more trouble, having to recall over 800 000 SUV models over a foot pedal issue. At least they didn’t lie this time.
Leo takes on VW. Playboy stops nudes. Anderson in Top 10. Cecil killer charge verdict. 2nd largest tech merger ever. SABMiller proposal increased. Mob used toddler as shield. Local actor klaps fan. Calvin Harris hand job drama.
As the stink around Volkswagen and their emissions scandal deepens Elon Musk has waded in with his views. He has a personal interest too.
In what could possibly be the worst timing of a product launch in the history of automakers, Volkswagen managed to make the Passat launch more awkward than the car’s name itself.
Volkswagen’s lil mess has created a global ripple effect that has now hit South Africa, but until there is a more solid understanding of what those effects will be, experts can only predict for now.
This is what happens when you get too greedy and aim to become the world’s biggest car brand, but can’t because the environment gets in the way. Damn the environment.

You guys remember that VW commercial that ran during the Superbowl with a tiny Darth Vader? Well, Greenpeace does. And they’ve made a spoof follow-up in an effort to call attention to the automaker’s environmental record. Liberal media sentiments aside, it’s cute – click through for a tiny Vader and a Message About The Environment.
VW are proposing a new technology that will allow drivers to take their hands off the wheel at speeds up to around 130km/h, and let the car’s system temporarily take over. Look, it isn’t exactly Knight Rider, but it’s good that VW’s looking after people who want to multitask while cruising down highways.
It’s quite big day for Volkswagen, and a big day for the internet really. VW is about to launch the new Beetle simultaneously in Shanghai, Berlin and New York, and the best part is you can watch it live. We’ve got all the info and VW’s brilliant Superbowl ad for the new Bug.
German research facility BrainDriver has put together a kit that lets people make rudimentary driving commands with their brains – you know, without using their hands. I have serious concerns about how this system deals with those brief suicidal thoughts that tend to pop up when knee-deep in traffic on the 9/5 commute.
Volkswagen just keep coming back for more! Remember the family-oriented advertisment from the good old days with David Kramer? Or the ones featuring “I remember the days of my life” by Andre de Villiers? Yeah, this advertisement is nothing like that, but damn it has its place.
