Video: Volkswagen Patented The Type 7 Name. It Used To Be The Name Of The Amphibian
Volkswagen has applied to register the Type 7 name with the European Patent Office. AutoGuide has learned about it.
What does it mean?
At the beginning of its existence, the Volkswagen brand used the word Type in the names of its models, followed by a number. So, classic "Beetle" bore a codename Type 1, but "Hippie van"who later became "Transporter" - Type 2 … The Type 7 model was also produced - it was a military vehicle of the 1940s, which was called Schwimmwagen, i.e "Floating car".
Volkswagen is preparing an amphibian?
Perhaps, but a more realistic option - this will be the name of the concept of an electric beach buggy, which will be presented spring 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show … VW has previously hinted at such a model.
