VOLKSWAGEN Phils. has announced that seven-year-old Cherub Nikolai Bedaño is the lucky winner of a 21st Century Beetle 1.2 TSI as the company culminated its People’s Car Celebration launch program.
The raffle draw highlighted the much-awaited return to Manila of Europe’s biggest carmaker.
Bedaño, who comes from Marikina, was with his family when he toured through Volkwagen’s two-day public display in Greenbelt Park, Makati.
“We think that a young seven-year-old winning the 21st Century Volkswagen Beetle is very symbolic. The boy certainly represents aspiration and optimism,” said John Philip Orbeta, president of Automobile Central Enterprise Inc. (ACEI), the official importer of Volkswagen passenger cars in the country.
ACEI said Cherub and his mother will receive the all-new Beetle next year.
