Volkswagen is preparing another novelty: Type 7 name is registeredDecember 24, 2018
Volkswagen is up to something, and it seems the Germans decided to recall the past of their company, so they patented the Type 7 name.
Once upon a time, VW just so simply called its cars. For example, the legendary Beetle was listed under the name Type 1, the spiritual predecessor of the Buzz ID Concept – was named Type 2. And Type 7 was also used, and then belonged to the military vehicle Schwimmwagen (literally translated “floating car”), and the 1940 model really was amphibian
Does this mean that the company is preparing a concept of a modern car that can swim? So far the details are not known, but it can be assumed that soon we will demonstrate the capabilities of electrical systems and on the concept of amphibians. AutoGuide suggests that VW may present a concept at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019 in March, but we would not count on it.
Will we see the embodiment of the Volkswagen Type 7 in reality is unknown. Modern brands can register and patent names and trademarks just in case, without serious intention to develop a new line under this name.
