Volkswagen brand chief and former Chrysler exec Wolfgang Bernhard confirmed to TCC this morning that the VW-Chrysler minivan project is a go. Bernhard tells TheCarConnection that the minivan will be a long-wheelbase-only version that has a unique interior and exterior designed by VW, although engineering for the vehicle will be done by the Chrysler Group. The VW version will share powertrains with the Chrysler versions and it's expected that the VW version will carry a slight price premium when it hits the streets in late 2007, shortly after the new versions of the Chrysler minivans bow.
