“It feels good to know you could” – this is the message of the advertising campaign for the new Tiguan. The TV commercial is in the same tradition as recent Volkswagen campaigns. With a slightly tongue-in-the-cheek approach, the short film promotes the off-road properties of the new SUV, which also puts up a good show on the road. For the market launch, the Tiguan commercial “Girls” is to be shown on German TV for the first time today. This will also be the start of the entire campaign, including printed advertisements, posters and a special website. The new Tiguan is to be promoted in this way in a number of European markets. “Our objective is to give the Tiguan a younger and cooler position without sacrificing its high-quality image,” explains Luca de Meo, Head of Group Marketing and Head of Marketing, Volkswagen Passenger Cars.

Bohemian South Austin. Rocking Red River Street. No-man’s-land North Austin, where each Sunday afternoon for the last 10 years, at a dive called Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon, you can eat free hot dogs and place bets on where a chicken will cop a squat, while premier honky-tonk practitioner Dale Watson croons in between sips of canned Lone Star beer. Spots like these are the ones frequented by people in Austin who know where to go to find good music. (continue reading…)

The Volkswagen Group supports the initiative of Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) with six fuel cell vehicles, the latest generation. From the end of October, two Volkswagen Tiguan HyMotion, two Caddy Maxi HyMotion and two Audi Q5 HFC under real conditions in Berlin’s city traffic will be tested. The aim is to demonstrate the suitability of hydrogen as a fuel in vehicles and to gain valuable insights into the evolution of this technology.
Prof. Juergen Leohold, head of research at Volkswagen: “The fuel cell is an important component of the fuel and powertrain strategy, Volkswagen. We are pleased to put our fuel cell vehicles available to the CEP project. The first Volkswagen models with a sufficiently durable and affordable fuel-cell drive could there be, in our view, at 2020th parallel, but also the development of a complete hydrogen infrastructure. ”

The aim of a three-phased project is the technological development of the energy source of hydrogen for transport. The second phase, lasting until the end of 2010 provides a technical update of the vehicles and the infrastructure and testing the technology before under everyday conditions. In the third phase by the end of 2016, the market in preparation for the hydrogen technologies for the transport sector at the center.
