VW struggles with unwanted connection to German far-right

Volkswagen Group is struggling with an unwanted connection to Germany’s far-right AfD party, which is holding its national convention at a hall that bears the automaker’s name this weekend.

The company has urged the arena’s operator to cover its logo during the anti-immigrant group’s meeting at the Volkswagen Halle in Brunswick (Braunschweig), near Wolfsburg where VW is based.
