Volkswagen will be bringing their hip, new Up! model to the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in four concept flavors to show off its versatility. The four concepts include a Swiss Up!, Winter Up!, Orange x Up!, and Cargo Up!

The Swiss Up! concept will sport the Swiss flag’s colors and a Tornado Red paint and contrasting white mirror caps. On the inside is a white dashboard, giving it a complete color scheme fitting for the Switzerland motor show. The Winter Up! will sport a white and blue theme while carrying a pair of snowboards on the roof. And to make it a snow-friendly car, the concept has a raised ride height, underbody protection, and an ESP with an electronic differential lock.

The bright Orange x Up! is a concept for “nighttime expeditions”, according to VW and has built-in searchlights on its roof box. Lastly is the Cargo Up! which appears to be a concept that could make it into production. The rear seats have been removed for extra loading space and has a carrying capacity of almost 940 lbs. It also has extra underbody protection panels and a higher ride height to compensate for the extra weight from its cargo. A plexiglas sheet separates the driver from its cargo.
