Volkswagen rebranding as Voltswagen in the US

Seems to a bit of a copycat of the GM line, too bad GM has basically abandoned the term.

They've abandoned the car production, not the name. I'm sure they still have it under copywrite even if they are not currently using it. Seems to close (possibility of general public confusion). I wouldn't be surprised if GM took them to court if money hasn't changed hands.

Volts and Volks, it seems like GM's marketing confusion with Volt/Bolt is contagious.

Will Ford be changing its name to Farad? lol

April fools jokes are released April 1. Pretty easy unless you are VW marketing. Release the rebranding news on March 30, then confirm it's true. Later claim it's an April fools joke that wasn't on April 1st. And their diesel engine exhaust cures health ailments...
