Volkswagen Attempts To Emerge From The Heart Of Darkness


With their newest advertisement, Volkswagen is going back to the 1960s with Simon & Garfunkel and hoping you will forget all about the nastiness of that Dieselgate mess.

Dieselgate, VW wants you to forget, is when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency discovered that VW had violated the Clean Air Act and intentionally programmed its turbocharged direct injection diesel engines to activate their emissions controls only during laboratory emissions testing.

In the advertisement, VW seems to acknowledge Dieselgate and tries to convince you that they are moving on from that with a focus on the new era of electric driving with the updated, electric version of their Sambabus.
