The EOS is dead! Long live the EOS?

The VW Eos is likely to be discontinued in its current form and be replaced by a larger soft-top, according to VW head of design Klaus Bischoff.

Folding hardtop to be replaced by a larger cabrio

Eos will not be replaced, says VW's design boss

Speaking at the launch of the VW Beetle Cabriolet in LA, which joins the Eos and Golf in VW’s open-top line-up, Bischoff revealed: “The Eos will not be prolonged when it comes off the market. Retractable hardtops are disappearing from the market now, and to be honest that’s not something I mind.”

Bischoff confirmed plans to build a larger, full-size four-seater convertible were under way as one of 100 design studies his team is currently working on.

“There’s definitely room in our line-up for a larger convertible, so why not do it?” he said at the LA motor show. “The problem with such ambitions is that all our existing factories are at full capacity, so any new additions means building new factories.”
