VAG-related EV announcements are like a car alarms in the shopping mall parking lot – background noise which is difficult to take seriously.

I get that and generally agree, but I did see ads for jobs building out their EV network across the U.S. That tells me they are doing something, as I doubt they’d spend money on the infrastructure if they weren’t going to have vehicles to take advantage of it. We’ll see.

Yes, you may get used to false alarms from VW group with concepts that never went anywhere. But it looks this time they are sending it to production for real.

The problem I have with Audi is they are supposed to be leading – advance cars that cost more because they are the best and newest technology. Nissan, GM, Tesla, Renault, BMW, even VW – Audi’s dumb cousin, know more than Audi at this stage. Those 3 new models better be pretty special or you may as well change the badge to Skoda.

Interesting side note my spell check suggest Kodak for Skoda – very apt.

LATE TO THE PARTY…….and how many gigafactories are they building to support all of these new EVs????


Being forced into EV because of diesel is a bit ironic. They win from lying.
