Volkswagen will add 12 new models by 2010

Apparently Volkswagen had enough Toyota monopole on the United States market. So, to have more of a say in the matter, the German maker will cut pricing while adding 12 brand new models.

`We have definitely added too many technical items that [American] customers don`t want to pay for` Mr. Winterkorn affirmed in an interview. He cited Volkswagen`s equipment of external mirrors, folding inward, accounting for narrow streets and small parking spaces. `Who needs that in the U.S.? The streets there are so wide` he said. The company wants to launch more autos in new segments, like a new compact sport-utility car called the Tiguan. Between the present and 2010, Volkswagen will add 12 models to the global lineup.
