Volkswagen will be celebrating the new Beetle almost simultaneously as a world premiere in Shanghai followed by World Stage events in New York and Berlin.

Not much has been revealed about the new Beetle, but here's what the folks at Volkswagen have said in their release - "The new Beetle’s exterior reinterprets the silhouette of the famous Volkswagen Beetle and combines stylistic elements borrowed from the original with the latest technology.

The World Stage show from New York City will be streamed live and highlights from the show will be broadcast later on MTV channels around the world.
