Photo of the Day: What's a 'Voltswagen'?Is this the new 'Voltswagen'?

No, it isn’t. This is just a classic Volkswagen Beetle decorated with social distance slogans, a mask and a giant vaccine hypodermic needle in West Kirby, United Kingdom. VW made an ‘April Fool’s Day’ false news release declaring it would rename its US operations as ‘Voltswagen of America’ in a marketing stunt to call attention to its electric vehicle efforts. Facing criticism online, the firm has pulled the statement.
