This post will be an oddball quickie. We found the news at a website called The Car Guide. Their headline is Volkswagen’s Next-gen EVs to Start with “ID.3”.
No doubt you’re asking: “Has the Curmudgeon gone totally bonkers? Why is he blogging about a new automobile model?” The answer will be obvious with our only excerpt. It’s their opening paragraph:
As you’re well aware by now, Volkswagen is about to move on from Dieselgate in a big way by launching almost 70 new electric models within the next ten years. These will be led by the new ID. family, a name that stands for “Intelligent Design.”
Ooooooooooooh! Volkswagen is coming out with a new line of cars called “Intelligent Design.” You gotta admit, dear reader, this is stunning news!
And we’re left with a bit of a mystery. How in the world did a major corporation like Volkswagen decide to use a name that — at least to some of us — is not what we want for our car model? We wouldn’t want to drive around in a “Flat Earth” model either. Who would want such a thing?
Three possible explanations come to mind: (1) the Volkswagen people are all creationists and want to shout it to the world; (2) they’re not necessarily creationists, but they don’t do any market research when naming new cars; or (3) they do a lot of market research, but the Discoveroid “theory” is so insignificant that they decided it was safe to ignore it.
Perhaps you can figure it out, dear reader. All we can predict is that a few of VW’s ID models will be sold to eager buyers in Seattle. Beyond that, we’ll be watching to see if the new line of cars becomes successful.
Because this news is so strange, feel free to use the comments for an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Have at it!
