VW Rabbit

There have already been major car shows in Detroit, Chicago and Geneva this year, but that doesn't mean there won't be a slew of new cars, concepts and hybrids at the New York International Auto Show.

First, the old news. Volkswagen announced that will begin mass producing Rabbits this summer. Volkswagen sold 1.3 million Rabbits over its original 10-year life span but sales of its successor Golf, introduced in 1984, were disappointing. The Golf brand is being replaced by the Rabbit.
