Official Fuel Economy Scores for the 2022 Volkswagen Taos

We are about a month away from the 2022 Volkswagen Taos compact crossover SUV arriving at dealerships around the country. Ahead of the much-anticipated vehicle’s delivery, our manufacturing partner has released the official fuel economy scores for the 2022 Volkswagen Taos from the Environmental Protection Agency. One thing we’d like to note to avoid any confusion is that the 2022 Taos and 2021 VW ID.4 are two different vehicles. The Taos uses a traditional efficient gasoline-powered engine and the ID.4. We have covered the new electrified crossover SUV elsewhere on the Team Gunther VW Blog. Let’s take a look at how much money the new Volkswagen crossover SUV can save its owners.  Read the rest of this entry »

It would be an understatement to say that we have had some feelings about it.

Volkswagen to keep name despite social media shocker

By Product Expert | Posted in FAQs, Just For Fun, News on Wednesday, March 31st, 2021 at 2:32 PM
The Volkswagen name and logo will be staying in place for the near future.

Is Volkswagen really going to change its name ‘Voltswagen?’

It is pretty common for companies to change their logos as the years roll on to keep them fresh and modern. However, it is pretty rare for a major corporation to make a wholesale change to the name that has been with customers for generations. So, is Volkswagen really going to change its name to ‘Voltswagen?’ In short? No, the name is changing. The global automaker made a big splash on social media with a playful announcement that a name change was coming to reflect the manufacturer’s commitment to electric vehicles. Charitably, one could say the online reaction was mixed. Volkswagen released statements confirming the change then quickly backtracking to say that it was all an early April Fool’s Day joke. For every Team Gunther VW staffer that liked the potential change, there were more that were skeptical it would really happen. VW will continue to mean Volkswagen for the foreseeable future. However, you’ll want to keep checking back with the Team Gunther VW Blog for any updates as they become available.  Read the rest of this entry »
