Scout Motors Names Could Include Reaper, Scythe, and… Baler?

Get ready for a troop of Scouts

  • Scout Motors has snagged more than 50 trademarks

  • List of names includes old IH model names and trims

Volkswagen’s Scout Motors, the rebirth of the classic industrial brand as a producer of EV SUVs, has some names. A ton of names. The company has filed for 50 trademarks, covering model and trim names and even slogans.

The full list was dug up by Inside EVs. Some of them are predictable, but some are, well, a little bit aggressive. And some don’t even make a lot of sense. Scout Baler? Really?

Some are old trim names, like Aristocrat. Others are just farm equipment names, like baler, scythe, harrow, and cultivator. Yes, the Scout Scythe sounds cool, but the Cultivator sounds more like an artsy left-leaning magazine full of esoteric essays and think pieces.

There are some slogans on the list as well. Like “The World Needs More Scouts” and “Surefooted as a Mountain Goat.” The Germans are really getting into the International Harvester ‘Murica imagery here.

It’s going to be a while longer (probably until 2025) before we find out what names Scout Motors will use. Production of the Scout line is expected to start in 2026 at a new plant in South Carolina (Scout Carolina) is one of the names on the list. The models will start with an SUV and a pickup will follow soon after.

Here’s a partial list, with the ad slogans removed.
