Germans to catch up with Telsa
Volkswagen launches a new German subsidiary called Elli. “Elli” is a portmanteau-word made up of ‘electric life’ and the company will generate electricity for Volkswagen’s ID customers as well as non-VW customers.
ID is Volkswagen’s new line of electric cars which will be available in 2020. What I find remarkable about this is that Volkswagen doesn’t seem to have registered a top level domain for ‘elli’ yet and elli.de as well as elli.com are already used by someone else than Volkswagen. Maybe, they are going to use their own TDL (.volkswagen) though so Elli’s URL would be www.elli.volkswagen
Elli is a good complementary service for Moia, another of VW’s new subsidiaries. Moia is hybrid of taxi and shuttle service operated by electric Volkswagen vans in major German cities.
