For Volkswagen, itís not just about innovation, itís also about domination. As one of its goals, the German company has pledged to become the leading automaker in the world by 2018 while still adhering to strict environmental standards. To that end, it opened a new plant in Chattanooga, refreshed vehicles such as the Beetle and Golf Cabriolet, and introduced new lines like the compact, urban-friendly New Small Family of cars. -- J.P.M.
