VW stole my totally brilliant and not terrible idea to rename itself ‘Voltswagen’

It seems VW of America is a little jealous about Tesla’s S3XY CARS meme, and supposed sense of humor. So much so, it’s committed the greatest atrocity of them all, and coming up with lame dad jokes.

What’s worse though, is they STOLE it, from ME!

According to Car and Driver, VW of America posted a press release announcing that it’s changing its name to Voltswagen, to make itself appear more EV friendly.

The post has since been removed, and it looks nothing more than perhaps a premature April Fool’s day gaff. Even though it was allegedly confirmed to CNBC.

But the biggest atrocity is they stole the joke from me. I’m pretty sure of that.

Nearly a year ago, after sharing the news that VW was focusing on EV production at its Zwickau plant in our company Slack, I suggested that it was high time that VW change its name to Voltswagen.

That was back in June 2020!
