The name Eos is derived from Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn and wind.
The Eos differs from the typical retractable hardtop in that its five-piece folding roof includes an integrated and independently sliding glass sunroof — making the Eos the only retractable hardtop of its kind. The roof folds automatically into the trunk in 25 seconds, thereby reducing trunk space from 10.5 cubic feet to 6.6 cubic feet.
The roof was designed and is built by OASys, a subsidiary of Webasto Germany.
Prior production, the car was shown as the Concept C concept car at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show. The production Eos was presented in September 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with the North American introduction at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January, 2006.
Unlike the Cabrio, which was a convertible version of the Golf hatchback, the Eos is a standalone model with all-new body panels, although it shares the platform and components from the Passat (Mark 6 (B6 now PQ46 platform) (2005-present)). The wheel base matches the Golf (Mark 5 (2003-present)) and Jetta.
The Eos is produced in Volkswagen's Autoeuropa factory in Palmela, Portugal. Although production started in late 2005, first deliveries were delayed due to a wind noise problem. The Eos was finally released in Europe in the first quarter of 2006, and in North America in the third quarter of 2006. Right-hand drive market Japan began sales in October 2006 followed by New Zealand and Australia in January 2007. It was released in South Africa in the second quarter of 2007.
