2022 Volkswagen Jetta First Look: Power to the People

  2022 Volkswagen Jetta First Look: Power to the People Americans still buy sedans for a number of reasons. At Volkswagen, the continued demand for the Jetta—including its sporty GLI variant—is evidence those reasons include value and performance. The seventh-generation Jetta gets a refresh for the 2022 model year. The German automaker thinks the current generation is hitting a sweet spot in the market—it is VW's third-best-selling nameplate in the United States, after all. The Jetta is key to a car lineup that also includes the Volkswagen Passat (at least for now) and the Volkswagen Arteon; VW announced in January that the standard VW Golf will no longer be sold in the U.S.

Volkswagen highlights its electrical strategy in a marketing campaign. But Greenpeace is obviously not convinced. The environmental advocacy organization believes that the change vaulted by the automaker is limited to advertising and the Wolfsburg Group will produce this year 95% of traditional vehicles.

Imposing a turning point

The NGO wants to impose a real electric turning point in Volkswagen as seen in the spring in the Netherlands against the Shell oil company. The complainants want the German manufacturer to cease to sell gasoline cars by 2030, and this worldwide.

Greenpeace relies on the judgment of the Karlsruhe Constitutional Court in the spring, which imposed on the German Government to take rapid measures to protect the rights of future generations by acting more strongly against global warming.

If Greenpeace's legal action was to be achieved, Volkswagen's CO2 emissions would be 2 GT lower by 2040, compared to the current forecasts of the German automaker. The stop against Shell requires the company to reduce its CO2 emissions by 45% by 2030. For Volkswagen, the reduction would be 65%.
