Change from Volkswagen to VW in the US … it’s just April Fools – El Financiero

Since the beginning of this week, the news started appearing in the various media outlets. In the United States, Volkswagen decided to change its name to the Volkswagen VW, as it increasingly switched production to electric cars.

Several agencies reported that the company led by Herbert Des on a global scale, decided to change the name of its branch in the American Federation, in line with the new philosophy and the electric future of the ship owner, as the company has strong investments in this type of mobility, such as the electric ID.4 models.

But … don’t believe everything you read, because they don’t realize that this was just a joke that the company will reveal this week as part of its April Fools’ celebration, as April 1st is celebrated with jokes in the United States, as well as in Poland, France, Finland, Austria, Australia, Germany and Italy. And Belgium and the United Kingdom, among other countries.

It is a celebration equivalent to the Day of the Holy Innocents in Mexico, which is celebrated here on December 28 according to Spanish tradition.

Some people close to the company tell us that the automaker this Thursday will come out to clarify this situation, but at the moment they were already a “popular topic” on the many social networks in the many markets where they have a presence, including Mexico. This is called a good advertising strategy.

So far, about 60 percent of groups come from Papalote’s popular partners Museo del Niño, which are companies like ADO, Herdez, Bimbo, GNP, Citibanamex, Bayer, Chedraui, and more. The path is missing.
