Volkswagen EV experts suggest VW may adopt the moniker “Voltswagen” for their VWEV branding in North America.
Voltswagen began delivering its first battery-electric compact crossover, the ID4, to U.S. dealerships this month. A press release leaked online Monday revealed that Volkswagen of America will use the brand name “Voltswagen” to differentiate its line of electric vehicles, which began deliveries to U.S. dealers this month. Automotive News has independently confirmed the authenticity of the planned change with a person familiar with the company’s plans, and that it is not an April Fools’ Day joke. The person said the change is in keeping with the company’s “all electric” future in the U.S. U.S. SALES REPORT: Sign up for our quarterly newsletter and get U.S. sales data and news from the previous month sent to your inbox as soon as it’s compiled.
