The Golf going greenAs the world goes green by leaps and bounds, the German automotive manufacturer Volkswagen with its ever-hip reputation does not want to be left behind.

The Golf will lead the way of Volkswagen’s first foray into hybrid technology. After their previous CEO dismissed the “trend” as he called it, Martin Winterkorn, the company’s current boss, has given the green light to go forward with all of the Volkswagen smaller vehicles in their portfolio for hybrid manufacture.

Volkswagen will also roll out a new vehicle in 2010, the Touareg. European manufacturers have been slow to catch the green wave, but with giant Volkswagen throwing down the hybrid gauntlet, look for more to roll off of Europe’s assembly lines in the future.
