VW looks to future with eGeneration Golf

Giving fleets a taste of the not-too-distant future is the new limited edition Volkswagen Golf that offers internet-compatible technology.

The manufacturer claims to be the first in Germany to offer such a service in a passenger car and said occupants could now 'call up online information in the course of a journey on the weather, traffic conditions, stock exchange information e-mails, internet banking or route planning.'

It also comes with Climatronic air conditioning, a Beta radio and the technical electrics as standard equipment.

This package, said the manufacturer, includes central locking with radio-operated remote control, electric windows at front and rear, electric remote control outside mirrors and a multifunctional display (MFA).

The eGeneration Golf's list price is announced as DM 43,908.39 (22,450 Euros) and it will only be available via the internet at www.volkswagen.de. (July/August 2001)
