After a motor show trip Volkswagen's three wheeler concept GX3 is going to get back to where it was born: California. Not only has it been created at the VW design studio in the sunshine state, it's the targeted market for the vehicle as well. Also the production is an all American issue as it will be assembled by a partner in the States. However the parts for the vehicle will be delivered by Euro-
pean companies.


Lotus help the German car maker with their know how and also some compo-
nents for the fun trike will be contributed by the British specialists. A 125hp 4-cylinder engine is planned to power the thing what should be enough to accelerate it in under 6 seconds to 100kph. Thus it's going to offer one of the fastest ways to speed up a VW badge. Volkswagen hope to meet ready markets in California since the make is more popular there than anywhere in the USA and the west coast's weather is suitable to ride an open top vehicle.

A hard top is under consideration in the moment. Volkswagen figure annual sales of 10,000 units when they ask prospective buyers for a 17,000 Dollar payment. The GX3 project is not necessarily about revenues but creating a fresher image for the German brand because the offers of the house aren't as hip in California as they have been a few years ago. And apart from decent quality, that's what Volkswagen need to do justice to the price tags.
