Might this be for a brand new electrical amphibious idea?
Volkswagen is as much as one thing nowadays. Effectively, each automotive producer is, however the German marque appears to be up for nostalgia with its current trademark software. As noticed by AutoGuide, VW has filed for the trademark of the title “Sort 7.”
In case you didn’t know, the Folks’s Automotive model used to call its automobiles easier by utilizing “Sort” after which adopted by quantity designations.
To recall, the Beetle was known as the Sort 1, whereas the Kombi – the non secular predecessor of the I.D. Buzz Idea above – was referred to as the Sort 2. A compact automotive was then referred to as the Sort three whereas the Sort four was a wagon. Digging deeper, the final time VW used the title Sort 7 was for a army car within the 1940s referred to as the Schwimmwagen, which accurately interprets to “Swimming Automotive.” Does this imply that VW is engaged on an amphibious idea?
Furthermore, it gained’t be a protracted shot if the corporate makes use of the Sort 7 for a further electrical idea to increase the I.D. Idea vary. An electrical amphibious car? Why not, proper?
We could or could not see the Sort 7 in manufacturing nor as an idea car, as automotive manufacturers have the knack of submitting every part for a trademark with out really materializing into one thing.
