It’s Official: Volkswagen Will Change Its Name To Voltswagen

Voltswagen is the new name for Volkswagen’s new era of e-Mobility


  • Or is it?

  • The US name change takes place this May.

  • The new name will bring rebranding efforts as well.

  • There’s no official news from Volkswagen Canada yet.


Although only a letter changes in Volkswagen’s name, the differences, according to Volktswagen, are profound. The name change is a declaration of the storied car company’s new fully-electrified direction which coincides with the introduction of their all-new ID.4 electric SUV.

“We might be changing out our K for a T, but what we aren’t changing is this brand’s commitment to making best-in-class vehicles for drivers and people everywhere,” said Scott Keogh, president and CEO of Voltswagen of America. “The idea of a ‘people’s car’ is the very fabric of our being. We have said, from the beginning of our shift to an electric future, that we will build EVs for the millions, not just millionaires. This name change signifies a nod to our past as the peoples’ car and our firm belief that our future is in being the peoples’ electric car.”

This change is in accordance to the Group to become the first major automaker to support the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. The plan involves a 30% reduction in the company’s carbon footprint by 2025 and achieve net-carbon neutrality by 2050.

For the moment, Volkswagen Canada has not shared any official news on whether or not it too will see its name change in the near future.
