Doesn't make any sense that a government would back on something as important as their citizens' safety when the deep pocketed automakers complain that adding ABS and airbags is too costly. :rolleyes:

Adding ABS and airbags on a vehicle the charge the equivalent of $37.5K US for at that...

Volkswagen could have exploited the same regulatory loophole that allowed Ford to keep making the Troller without airbags, but it would be impossible to circumvent the ABS mandate. However, since even some small-displacement motorcycles are now fitted with ABS it didn't really seem impossible at all to also fit it to the Kombi.
