Volkswagen has effectively ruled out the possibility of introducing a successor for the Eos coupe cabriolet.

The Eos was launched in 2006 at a time when hardtop convertibles were quite popular but soon after its introduction, sales in this segment plummeted and Volkswagen took quite a hit since in the years to come they sold only a handful of cars. This is why in 2014 they announced plans to kill the Eos but not before rolling out a 2015MY Final Edition in United States.

Talking to Autocar in Detroit at NAIAS, Volkswagen's technical boss Heinz-Jakob Neusser said there aren't any plans to replace the Eos and he also hinted about the demise of other models as a response to the criticism of having just too many cars in the lineup.
