They used the P.R. disaster as a pivot towards the dramatic change with the tagline In the darkness, we found the light. The logo appears at the end of the spot. The new logo was implemented on Volkswagen's social media in the United States, but it is unknown whether the logo will be short-lived as the actual revamped Volkswagen logo launched in September in the same year.

In July 2019, it emerged that Volkswagen is planning a more substantial revamp of their logo, following their current refresh in June. The new logo debuted on jerseys for German football club VfL Wolfsburg[1] and Canadian football clubs HFX Wanderers FC and Pacific FC.[2] The logo also appeared as a vehicle badge in photos of a prototype on the 2020 Golf Mk8.[3]

Volkswagen later revealed in August that their new logo and brand, titled "New Volkswagen" will be officially revealed to the world in September during the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. The new brand is expected to keep the well-known blue of VW but will also give a new lighter shade to be used with white and dark blue as the brand colours. There will also be a new corporate typeface and the new logo is expected to be installed at the firm's headquarters in Wolfburg. VW also confirmed that the first car to use the new logo will be the upcoming 2020 Golf Mk8.

Their ID.3 electric hatchback, also to be revealed officially in Frankfurt, will have the outgoing logo.[4]
