Shaped like a cloud, the 8893sqm booth will accommodate more than 50 vehicles and will showcase the new up! city car, which is making its public debut along with the recently unveiled new-generation Beetle, Tiguan and Golf Cabriolet.

The NILS single-seat electric vehicle concept will also make its world premiere in Hall 3.

As well as the cars themselves, Volkswagen is using a 100ft interactive wall to give visitors a taste of mobility in the future, as well as presenting details on innovations and alternative technologies.

Volkswagen’s Motorsport and Commercial Vehicle divisions will also be displaying a number of new models in Hall 3.

The booth itself will be lit by 2100 lamps powered by roughly 50 miles of cables.

Roll racing is having a moment – or at least it was before COVID hit and shut down a year’s worth of events. The motorsport phenomenon that we first noticed through the likes of Texas2K two-plus decades ago and a few other copycat events around the country since had some momentum heading into 2020 before

In order to get the full story of Garage Active, and its animated founding father, you would need more than just a single feature.
