The second generation was developed under the code name Phaeton D2. The project has reached the stage of a pre-production prototype, which we can see in the photographs. Unfortunately, in 2016 the project was canceled due to the reorientation of the brand towards electric vehicles. In addition, the first generation failed in sales and was incredibly unprofitable for Volkswagen.

At the same time, the car looks modern even now. For example, the dual display of the dashboard and multimedia complex called Innovision Cockpit debuted only in 2018 on the new generation of Tuareg. And now more and more automakers are moving to such solutions.

In a statement, the California Department of Motor Vehicles is requiring Tesla to change the description and positioning of the features mentioned above when advertising and selling electric vehicles in California. In particular, the department asks the company to communicate in promotional materials about the limitations of these options in the same way as they are reported on the official Tesla website. Otherwise, the agency will insist on revoking Tesla’s license to sell cars in the state. It is noted that in this case, the restrictions will not affect the owners of already sold cars.

Tesla has 15 days to defend its rights in court. The company has not yet commented on the situation.
