With the Frankfurt Auto Show weeks away, Volkswagen and others are starting leak our information on what will be showing and or debuting. It was two years ago that Volkswagen showed us the E-Up at the 2009 Frankfurt IAA. During the show Martin Winterkorn said “We will launch a zero emissions Up! on the market in 2013″.
The 64th IAA will take place on September 15-25th and Volkswagen has released its first teaser titled “Something small is coming Up!”. The first is directed towards the small moments that make us happy. Could we see the first production models this year?
“Isn’t it the small moments that make us happy? That can make an ordinary day great? That make us feel like we’re floating? In September 2011, the time has come. The Up! is on its way.”
The second is a still image saying “A Small Bang With Great Sound!”. This is directed towards a digital concert with Royseven to take place on August 21st.
