Volkswagen's upcoming Golf MkVII will be the first all-new model in the Golf line since the fifth generation launched in 2003, and these new photos show that development is well underway.

The new model is expected to make its global debut around the middle of next year, with a Geneva or Frankfurt debut the most likely course for the brand's most important model.

While the testcar shown here is heavily camouflaged, it is clear that the new model will continue the Golf's evolution toward a sleeker profile, with a longer windscreen and a bonnet that dips lower than on the current model.

Built on Volkswagen's new multi-purpose MQB platform, these images show that the new Golf will likely feature a wider track and a slightly longer body in both three- and five-door form.

The new Golf will also figure in the carmaker's new Blue-e-motion line-up, which will feature a range of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Volkswagen boss Dr Martin Winterkorn said recently that the company's first plug-in hybrid would hit the road in either 2013 or 2014, paving the way for a full range of hybrid and electric vehicles.

Volkswagen has also revealed its plans on the electric front, most recently in the form of the Golf Blue-e-Motion EV. Powered by an electric motor, the Golf Blue-e-Motion offers 85kW of power and 270Nm of torque.

By comparison, the entry-level diesel Golf 77TDI produces 77kW and 250Nm of torque, while the petrol-powered Golf 90TSI produces 90kW and 200Nm.

A market date for the electric Golf has still to be confirmed, although Volkswagen has launched a pilot programme with 500 hand-picked consumers throughout Europe.
