Volkswagen confirms changing US unit name to “Volkswagen”


The American unit of the German car manufacturer Volkswagen confirmed today, Tuesday, that it will change the name of its operations in the United States to “Volkswagen of America” ​​with the shift of its focus to electric cars.

“We may change characters, but we will not change the brand’s commitment to making best-in-class cars for drivers and for all people everywhere,” Scott Q., President and CEO of Woltswagen America, said in a statement.

The German automaker announced its commitment to selling one million electric cars worldwide by 2025 and launching 70 electric models of various brands of the Volkswagen Group by 2029.
