VW totally stole my idea, wants to rename itself ‘Voltswagen’


It looks like VW of America is a little jealous of Tesla’s S3XY CARS meme and its supposed sense of humor. So much so that it committed the greatest atrocity of all, and making up some lame daddy jokes.

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

According to Car and Driver, VW of America issued a press release announcing that it is changing its name to Voltswagen, to make itself appear more user-friendly for electric vehicles.

The post has since been deleted and it looks like nothing more than perhaps a premature April Fool’s Day blunder. Although it would have been confirmed to CNBC.

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

Almost a year ago, after announcing that VW was concentrating on producing electric vehicles at its Zwickau plant in our company Slack, I suggested that it was high time that VW changed its name to Voltswagen.

It was back in June 2020!
