VW Logo Returns to 2D Look
Volkswagen AG will officially introduce a new two-dimensional version of its logo next month at the Frankfurt auto show.
The plainer and flatter logo (pictured) marks a return to the minimalist style of most post-World War II versions of the design. VW switched to the current bevel-lettered, blue-and-white logo in 2000.
VW has been using the new minimalist design unannounced at the end of the “Something Big” and “Hello Light” television ads in the U.S. to tout its electrification program. The first VW model to carry the new badge reportedly will be the eighth-generation Golf five-door hatch.
Last year Buick sold 219,231 vehicles in the U.S.
Outside of a pickup truck, there is no vehicle that’s sold in greater units than the Toyota RAV4. So when they developed the new generation, they had a whole lot to consider.
Ford has made an accomplishment that will never be bested, never even be tied.
