With its “TOGETHER – Strategy 2025” future program, the Volkswagen Group is paving the way for the biggest change process in its history:

The Volkswagen Group, with its headquarters in Wolfsburg, is one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers and the largest carmaker in Europe. The Volkswagen Group is also active in other fields of business, manufacturing large-bore diesel engines for marine and stationary applications, turbochargers and -machinery, special gear units, compressors and chemical reactors. In addition, the Volkswagen Group offers a wide range of financial services, including dealer and customer financing, leasing, banking and insurance activities, and fleet management.

the realignment of one of the best carmakers to become a globally leading provider of sustainable mobility. In order to achieve this, the Group will be transforming its auto- motive core business and will be launching a further 30-plus fully electric cars by 2025, as well as expand- ing battery technology and autonomous driving as new core competences. Furthermore, a cross-brand business unit for intelligent mobility solutions is to be established as a second pillar. The strategic investment in on-demand mobility provider Gett was the first step in this direction; over the coming years, further services such as robotaxis, carsharing or transport on-demand will be grouped around this nucleus. The successful transformation requires the Group to place its innovation power on an even broader footing: the Group is driving forward with digitalization across all brands, areas and functions. At the same time, Volkswagen will rely to a greater extent than before on partnerships, acquisitions and strategic investments. To finance investments in future topics, the Group aims to significantly increase efficiency across all areas, brands and regions.
