Volkswagen has made a big revelation regarding changing their trade name in the United States. The company has planned to change its name to ‘Voltswagen’ as it increasingly focuses its production on electric vehicles. It is trying to distance itself from a scandal about measurement of emissions of its vehicles.
German auto giant on its official website posted in brief a statement announcing the name change but later the statement was withdrawn. Meanwhile, VW is accepting bookings for its newly launched ID.4 electric SUV. The sale of the model is only in the United States and surprisingly it is the company’s only new electric model for sale, although there are plans for more. Even with the ID.4 for sale, only a some of Volkswagens on American roads will carry the ‘Voltswagen’ name.
