The Eurish version of 'General Motors', maybe?
Don't like it.
Trying to imagine what the badge would look like.
Think they should stick with VW.

From a press note on home of sport uk
VW to change name? - 22 December 2004
The largest European carmaker not involved with Formula One, Volkswagen, may
be considering a change of name.
The Wolfsburg-based brand, though, denied the media speculation, the press
office insisting that the name is 'rooted in tradition.'
Earlier, the German 'Bild' newspaper said parent company VW may become 'Auto
Union' to differentiate between the Volkswagen and similarly-owned Audi
The VW holding company also controls Bentley, Lamborghini, Seat, Skoda and -
soon - Bugatti.
Planned insanity is best.
Remember that sanity is optional.
