The note seemed very real, said that “The company will preserve elements of Volkswagen’s heritage, maintaining its iconic VW Dark Blue color for gas-powered vehicles and Light Blue to differentiate the new EV-centric brand. As of today, a new brand will be implemented in all channels of publicity, website and social media of the company.
Moving forward, ‘Voltswagen’ will be placed as an external emblem on all EV models with gas vehicles bearing only the VW emblem. External and internal signage will soon be implemented at all Voltswagen properties and dealerships in the USA ”- revealed Volkswagen in a statement.
It is worth mentioning that everything was an early April prank.
