This is the new advertisement for the VW hybrid (yes, well done, but that’s something Toyota have been doing for twenty years, so let’s not get over-excited about the news value here).
We all love a good villain, but the question is this: are VW acknowledging that, after the emissions scandal, they are (or were) Public Enemy no.1 and playing a delightfully mischievous game around that? Or is it just a coincidence? I like to think it’s a wonderful piece of self-deprecation. And if that’s the case, I’ll forgive them for being so close to the idea Jaguar used recently.
