Voltswagen of America, a new unit of Volkswagen Group
 
Volkswagen inadvertently posted a press release on its website a month early on Monday announcing a new name for its U.S. operations, 'VOLTSWAGEN OF AMERICA.' Company spokespersons confirmed the authenticity but have declined to comment on the release, supposed to launch on April 29 date. Expected to take effect in May 2021, it was to bring the brand future-forward totally into E-mobility. They will preserve the iconic and historic 'VW' emblem only but will use light blue color and light blue lighting to differentiate its EV-centric brand vehicles. 'Voltswagen of America' will be an operating unit within the Volkswagen Group of America and subsidiary of Volkswagen AG. Just in time, GM just discontinued the plug-in hybrid Chevy Volt in 2019 and its all-electric Chevy Bolt EV sales down when the tax credit phase completely ended.

But as a station wagon.

Watt are they thinking?

Sounds either like a joke or a statement of them not willing to make anything affordable anymore. The volks might get shocked while looking at the price tags now...

No surprise here.

The journalist b*tt-hurt is hi-larious.

The FTC didn't think it was funny.

With just a little common-sense, they could easily spot it as an April Fools Day instead of whining.

To be fair, they called VW, who doubled down. And it was March 30th.
