Volkswagen 2019

On 5 June 2019, Volkswagen refreshed their logo as 2D black-and-white variant. It debuted in a TV commercial where Volkswagen acknowledges the 2015 emissions scandal and launches their entry into electric vehicles. They used the P.R. disaster as a pivot towards the dramatic change with the tagline In the darkness, we found the light. The refreshed logo appears at the end of the spot. The logo change was implemented on Volkswagen's social media in the United States, and it will be rolled out globally in the coming months.
