VW-Konzernchef Herbert Diess, der in Personalunion auch die Marke VW führt, will Porsche-Chef Oliver Blume nach Wolfsburg holen. Das hat auto motor und sport aus Unternehmenskreisen erfahren.

Porsche-Chef muss Golf 8- und ID.3-Probleme managen

Blume soll zum VW-Markenvorstand berufen werden, um die dramatischen Probleme mit dem Golf VIII und dem ID.3 in den Griff zu bekommen. Damit will sich Diess offenbar aus der Schusslinie bringen, weil er aktuell als VW-Markenchef die großen Probleme verantwortet. Unter anderem muss VW den neuen Golf in die Werkstätten zurückrufen, weil der Notrufassistent eCall nicht zuverlässig funktioniert, außerdem soll es große Produktionsprobleme geben, weshalb nur ein Drittel der Neuwagen fehlerfrei sind.

Als neuer Porsche-Chef ist Skoda-Vorstandsvorsitzender Bernhard Maier im Gespräch. Maier kennt Porsche bestens: Bevor er 2015 auf den Skoda-Chefposten wechselte war er Vertriebsvorstand bei Porsche.



Auch der missglückte Werbespot für den neuen Golf VIII, der VW Rassismusvorwürfe eingebracht hat, bleibt nicht folgenlos. Jochen Sengpiehl, als Chief Marketing Officer verantwortlich für den Clip, soll unseren Informationen nach vor dem Rauswurf stehen

Se le indiscrezioni di auto Motor und sport fossero vere ci sarebbe una vera rivoluzione nel management di Volkswagen. Oliver Blume, attualmente ceo di Porsche e capo della produzione di tutto il gruppo, verrebbe chiamato a dirigere il marchio Vw. Naturalmente è molto più facile essere il capo di Porsche mentre se sei il capo del marchio Vw devi combattere giornalmente con i sindacati (infatti Blume si guarda bene dal tagliare i costi come vorrebbe Diess), eppure sarebbe la conferma che l’erede di Diess sarà lui. L’attuale ceo di Vw continua a perdere potere, in parte anche volutamente. In 6 mesi Diess ha ceduto lo sviluppo tecnico a Mark Dusemann, la guida del mercato cinese a Wöllenstein e si apprestere e a lasciare il timone del marchio Vw. Blume dovrà risolvere i grossi problemi tecnici di Golf VIII e Id3.

Vor seinen Topmanagern hat der Lenker des Weltmarktführers die neue Fahrtrichtung annonciert: Strengste Kostenhygiene lautet das Ziel, dem Virus geschuldet. Herbert Diess fordert: "Jede Ausgabe ist zu begründen“. Er mahnt: E-Mobilität darf kein Zuschussgeschäft bleiben. Er prüft – die Modellpalette auszudünnen. Und den Rückstand auf Tesla soll das Projekt „Rakete“ mindern.

VW-Hauptmann Diess, VW-Vormann Osterloh: Die Chefs von Konzernvorstand und Betriebsrat dürften in nächster Zeit vermehrt kontroverse Debatten führen müssen; das von Diess gewünschte und von Osterloh hinterfragte Neu-Werk im türkischen Manisa wird so bald nicht gebaut – wenn überhaupt. (Foto: VW)

VW-Chef Herbert Diess verschärft den Sparkurs des Konzerns in der Coronakrise massiv. „Wir müssen die F+E-Ausgaben, Investitionen und Fixkosten gegenüber bisherigem Planungsstand deutlich kappen“, kündigte Diess in einer Rede vor Topmanagern des Konzerns am Donnerstagvormittag dieser Woche an. Die Nettoliquidität des Weltmarktführers werde „mindestens noch bis Juli wegen schwacher Nachfrage weiter abnehmen“, betonte Diess.
Wie Teilnehmer des Events berichten, müsse daher jetzt etwa die Hauptmarke VW Pkw ihre Sachgemeinkosten um 20 Prozent reduzieren. Für neue Vorhaben werden Budgets aus den Vorjahren nicht mehr einfach fortgeschrieben. „Jede Ausgabe ist zu begründen“, sagte Diess. Dennoch würden 2020 „nicht alle VW-Marken ein positives Jahresergebnis schaffen“.

Der Jubel rollt – wenn der ID.3 kommt

Zugleich machen Volkswagen negative Deckungsbeiträge zu schaffen. Beim rein stromgetriebenen Kleinwagen E-Up etwa muss Volkswagen laut Diess bis zu 5.000 Euro pro Auto zuschießen. Der E-Golf ist ähnlich defizitär. Umso wichtiger sei ein Erfolg von VWs künftigem Stromer ID.3, der Diess zufolge von Beginn an Geld verdienen werde.
Neben Produktverschiebungen „auch bei wichtigen Baureihen“ lässt der Konzernchef mit Hochdruck analysieren, welche Modelle komplett entfallen können. Damit stehen auch Arbeitsplätze auf dem Spiel. „Durch die neue Sparrunde ist weiterer Ärger mit dem Betriebsrat unter Bernd Osterloh vorprogrammiert“, sagte ein VW-Topmanager, der anonym bleiben wollte, der Automobilwoche.

"Rocket Launch" in Ingolstadt

Mit Blick auf den wichtigsten Einzelmarkt des VW-Konzerns unterstrich Diess: „Zu den unangenehmen Wahrheiten gehört auch, dass in China unsere Marktführerschaft kein Naturgesetz ist“. Nennenswertes Wachstum sei im Reich der Mitte nur noch mit E-Mobilen zu erreichen. Diess: „Bei E-Autos heißt in China der Marktführer jetzt Tesla“.
In einem streng vertraulichen Workshop prüfte der Konzern jüngst, wie man bis 2024 zu Tesla aufholen kann. Erstes Ergebnis ist das Projekt „Rakete“ unter Führung des Audi-Chefs Markus Duesmann. Kernelement ist ein neu aufgelegtes Software-Paket namens „E³ 2.0“. „Es werden noch Jahre vergehen, bis wir bei der Software die erforderlichen Kompetenzniveaus erreicht haben, um vorn im Wettbewerb mitzuwirken“, räumte Diess vor seinen Führungskräften ein. Und: „Noch heute kommt kaum eine Zeile Software-Code von uns.“
Um das schnellstens zu ändern, solle VWs neue Car-Software-Organisation „am 1. Juli vom virtuellen zum realen Player werden“. Diess: „Jeder Tag, den wir zusätzlich verlieren, ist ein Tag, den wir nicht haben.“

Diess si prepara a tagliare in maniera pesante per tutto il 2020, secondo le stime entro luglio saranno bruciati 12 miliardi di euro di liquidità. Scontri durissimi con Osterloh dureranno almeno fino al fine anno, l’impianto annunciato in Turchia non verrà costruito. Diess deve urgentemente rivedere parte del management, tutti si domandano perché Frank Welsch sia ancora capo dell’ R&D del marchio Vw, Dusemann sta ottenendo sempre più cariche.
Per Audi questa notizia è molto positiva perché negli ultimi 5 anni aveva perso moltissime competenze a favore di Porsche e Vw.

Ralf Brandstätter to lead Volkswagen core brand in future
Strengthening of the Group and brand management functions
Ralf Brandstätter appointed CEO of the Volkswagen brand

Ralf Brandstätter
The Volkswagen Group is reassigning responsibilities for the management of the brand and the Group. The Volkswagen core brand is to be led by the brand’s previous COO, Ralf Brandstätter from July 1, 2020. The CEO of the Volkswagen Group, Dr. Herbert Diess, who had previously been responsible for both functions, will therefore receive greater leeway for his tasks as Group CEO. Within the Group Board of Management, he will retain overall responsibility for Volkswagen Passenger Cars and the Volume brand group. The objective will be a stronger focus on the tasks at the top level of the Group and the brand in the current transformation phase of the automotive industry. The Supervisory Board took note of this at its meeting held today.

Following the laying of strategic foundations over the past few years with consistent orientation towards e-mobility and the creation of structures for the digitalization of the automobile, the company is now strengthening the top management structures of the Volkswagen Group and brand. The Group Board of Management therefore decided at its meeting held today to appoint Ralf Brandstätter as CEO of the Volkswagen brand effective July 1, 2020.

“Ralf Brandstätter is one of the company’s most experienced managers. Over the past two years, he has already led Volkswagen successfully as COO and played a key role in shaping the transformation of the brand,” said the CEO of Volkswagen AG, Dr. Herbert Diess. “I am therefore very pleased that Ralf Brandstätter will be forging ahead with the development of the brand as CEO following the far-reaching strategic decisions of the past few years.”

After a record year in 2019, the brand is outstandingly well- positioned for the future. Volkswagen has successfully completed the first phase of the Transform 2025+ strategy. The company is now embarking on the next phase. The broad-based electric offensive will now be-come tangible with new vehicles on the roads. Volkswagen is paving the way to zero-emission mobility for everyone. By 2025, at least 1.5 million electric cars are to be sold. In addition to elec-trification, the brand will also forge ahead with digitalization over the coming years.


“For Volkswagen, the course towards the future has been set. On the basis of the Transform 2025+ strategy, the brand is developing into one of the leading providers of carbon-neutral mobility and is on the way to becoming a digital technology company. I would like to thank the entire Volkswagen team for their tremendous commitment. We will follow our path resolutely together,” says Ralf Brandstätter.

Ralf Brandstätter was born in Brunswick on September 8, 1968. After training as a shopfitter at the Volkswagen plant in Brunswick, he studied industrial engineering and joined the Volkswagen Group in 1993. Following positions in international project steering in the procurement division, he became an assistant to the Board of Management in the General Secretariat of Volkswagen AG. In 1998 he took charge of metal procurement for chassis and powertrain components and was made project manager for new vehicle projects in 2003. In 2005 he moved to Spain as head of procurement at SEAT. He became the member of the SEAT Executive Committee responsible for Purchasing in 2008. Brandstätter was named Head of Group Procurement Exterior in 2010. He was appointed Head of Group Purchasing New Product Launches in 2012 and was made a General Representative of Volkswagen AG in October 2015. Ralf Brandstätter was appointed a member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand in December 2015.. Brandstätter has been Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand since August 1, 2018

Vw ha riassegnato le responsabilità del marchio Vw che verranno attribuite a Ralf Brandstätter, Diess era finito sotto accusa da parte dei sindacati per il lancio difficoltoso della Golf VIII e ID3.

Altra pessima notizia per Diess: dopo soli 2 anni lascia il gruppo Stephan Sommer, capo della divisione componenti e fino al 2017 ceo di ZF.
È un ulteriore segno che la base di potere di Diess si sta erodendo sempre di più. Ha perso parecchi incarichi e il suo tentativo di far diventare Blume ceo del marchio Vw è andato a vuoto, se fosse riuscito ad imporre quella decisione si sarebbe trovato un rivale di meno.
L’ Ig Metall come al solito è uscita rafforzata e potrà continuare a scalpitare contro ogni tentativo di tagliare i costi.

Per adesso è un trionfo su tutta la linea per Osterloh, la stampa tedesca ha fatto uscire alcuni dettagli sullo scontro nel consiglio di amministrazione e Diess è stato umiliato.

Volkswagen AG’s supervisory board accepted an apology from Chief Executive Officer Herbert Diess, with the unusual public statement reflecting the tension caused by an internal dustup.

Diess, already under fire for snags plaguing key models, accused supervisory board members last week of committing crimes by leaking confidential discussions, according to people familiar with the matter. The allegations were a serious affront to Volkswagen’s power players, who have orchestrated the ouster of numerous top executives over the years.

The CEO was stripped of a key operating role as a result of the dispute, which nearly cost him his job. While he has weathered the spat for now, the board offered only minimal backing on Tuesday.

“The members of the supervisory board accepted the apology of Dr. Diess and will continue to support him in his work,” the 20-member body said in a statement.

During an internal event last week, Diess told more than 3,000 managers that the leaks could cause problems with U.S. authorities, which are monitoring the company as part of the settlement from the 2015 diesel-cheating scandal, said the people who asked not to be identified discussing internal events.

Roused by the scolding and already unhappy with production issues, some board members pondered his dismissal as group CEO, but pulled back amid internal dissent as Volkswagen battles the biggest industry slump in decades, the people said.

The supervisory board instead decided on Monday to take away his direct control over the namesake VW brand, a high-profile position at the center of the auto giant’s operations.

Powerful Panel

Diess didn’t intend to suggest that members of the supervisory board were guilty of an offense and offered an apology over the weekend, VW said in an emailed statement. His remarks referred to media reports that were apparently based on leaked confidential information, the company said.

Tangling with Volkswagen’s supervisory board -- which includes labor leaders, officials from the state of Lower Saxony and members of the Porsche-Piech family, which owns the majority of VW voting shares -- is a risky endeavor. Past executives including Bernd Pischetsrieder, Wolfgang Bernhard and even former patriarch Ferdinand Piech were forced out after running afoul of the body.

The infighting comes at a critical time for Volkswagen. The German carmaker is trying to soften the impact of the coronavirus crisis, while also managing an epochal shift toward electric vehicles.

Volkswagen shares fell as much as 4.8% and were down 1.6% at 2:58 p.m. in Frankfurt trading, extending the company’s decline for the year to 17%.

Diess has been under pressure over concerns that VW’s flagship Golf and the electric ID.3 might face greater difficulties as software problems hamper production. On Monday, Volkswagen said that Ralf Brandstaetter, currently chief operating officer for the VW brand, will take over leadership of the group’s largest unit so that Diess can focus on overall strategy.

Delay Risks

The move is a blow for Diess and sets up potential conflict down the road. Except for brief periods, the CEO of the group has always run the VW brand, and Diess restored the practice when taking the reins two years ago.

After jumping ship from BMW AG, Diess has frequently been at the center of tensions at Volkswagen. He weathered a spat with powerful labor leaders, who openly questioned his credibility, to wrest the CEO job from predecessor Matthias Mueller in 2018. Last year, he caused controversy by evoking a Nazi slogan at an internal company event, forcing the executive to apologize publicly.

To move past the diesel scandal, Diess has pushed VW to invest heavily in electric cars and reached a key agreement with unions to cut labor costs.

“Were things to deteriorate further, the departure of CEO Diess from the group would at the very least mean a delay in the VW transformation thesis,” said Timm Schulze-Melander, an analyst at Redburn


La settimana scorsa i sindacati avevano umiliato Diess facendo trapelare le indiscrezioni riguardo ad una sua sconfitta nel consiglio di sorveglianza.
Diess se n’era lamentato apertamente durante una riunione di manager venerdì scorso. Lunedì è stato chiamato a rapporto, ha dovuto scusarsi pubblicamente e accettare di perdere l’incarico di ceo del marchio Vw nonché il siluramento di Sommer, manager pagato a caro prezzo.

Leggiti il comunicato ufficiale rilasciato da Vw:

Supervisory Board accepts apology of Dr. Herbert Diess
At yesterday’s Supervisory Board meeting, which focused on personnel matters, the Supervisory Board and Dr. Herbert Diess also discussed statements of Dr. Diess at an internal event. Dr. Diess formally apologised for these statements towards the members of the Supervisory Board, declaring that these statements were inappropriate and wrong. The members of the Supervisory Board accepted the apology of Dr. Diess, and will continue to support him in his work.

Immaginati un Marchionne che si deve scusare pubblicamente con Landini.
Diess è managerialmente parlando un morto che cammina, credo che entro fine anno lo cacceranno e l’erede è già pronto Oliver Blume.

Certo che ultimamente la Vw cambia più AD/CEO che altro.
Vista dall'esterno, è segno di una certa tensione all'interno del gruppo.
Comunque, possono mettere chi vogliono, ma finché i sindacati avranno tutto quel potere, la musica sarà sempre la stessa.

Ho letto tutto. Sconvolgente la figura di palta che gli hanno fatto fare. In autunno ne fa 62, non penso abbia difficoltà economiche o problemi di pensione, avrebbe fatto miglior figura a "sbattere la porta" e andarsene. Poi non so quali accordi particolari e ovviamente riservati ci siano, ma così è ridursi al livello di "MES no, Eurobond sicuramente si!" :piangi2

Lo sanno anche i sassi che a Wolfsburg valgono regole piuttosto peculiari che fanno sembrare il gruppo la versione aziendale dell’Unione sovietica.
Guarda caso qualche giorno fa Diess internamente aveva parlato della necessità di tagli pesanti a causa del Coronavirus, un’ovvietà in qualsiasi altra azienda ma non alla Vw.
Solo i Porsche lo sostengono ma si sono stancati anche loro.

FRANKFURT — Herbert Diess may want to watch his back.

The Volkswagen Group CEO, who earned almost €10 million ($11.3 million) last year, no doubt remembers how he came to run the carmaker: The ambitious Austrian went behind his aging predecessor's back to convince directors he was the best man to lead VW into the future.

Following a series of blunders by Diess, 61, largely centered around its flagship Golf model, the board may now be getting other ideas.

After finding themselves on the receiving end of a Diess attack, the 20 nonexecutive directors -- split equally between shareholders and unions -- delivered what can only be seen as a public censure of their CEO: Under pressure, he was forced to cede control over the VW brand to Ralf Brandstätter, 51, the operations chief installed at the behest of labor leaders.

"The unions have weakened Diess -- he's wounded," a source close to the board said. "As long as Lower Saxony doesn't side with them [to create a majority], they cannot get rid of him, though."

Despite suffering his biggest defeat since taking over in April 2018, insiders at the company say the hot-tempered and demanding Diess is not the type to back out of a fight or give in to adversity. He also continues to retain overall control over the volume brands that include Skoda and Seat as well as VW, and also groupwide responsibility for sales and for China.

A series of missteps around the all-important Golf hatchback -- built in Wolfsburg, near the company headquarters -- was the catalyst behind the warning he received.

Trade unionists had been furious with what they called "enormous pressure" to meet the car's launch date in December, when most Germans were planning for Christmas holidays. Not only did Diess dismiss their concerns, he inflamed them by describing it as "one of the best ramp-ups we ever had" in a LinkedIn post.

"In the time frame envisioned, it demanded everyone work at the limits of their capacity," said a company source. "We brought it a month too early."

But delaying it would have been costly, too. Since the hatchback lacked a standard center airbag — required for a five-star safety rating as of January — VW would have fallen short with its signature car, which one official said would have been humiliating.

Making matters worse, the subsequent European rollout, already difficult because of the coronavirus outbreak, was marred by a problem with a mandatory eCall safety system. All 30,000-plus Golf 8 models delivered in Europe had to be recalled, and VW stopped delivery of others for three weeks.

Tempers rose further after a controversial 10-second Golf ad was posted on Instagram that critics argued hid a racist message. An internal investigation found no racist intent, but VW apologized for the video, calling it "inappropriate and tasteless."

VW’S NEW BRAND CEO

Ralf Brandstätter
Age: 51
Hometown: Braunschweig, Germany
Start: Trained as a shopfitter at the VW plant in Braunschweig, Germany. Studied industrial engineering and joined the VW Group in 1993.
Career: Rose through corporate ranks in procurement and purchasing. Appointed to VW Passenger Cars board of management in December 2015. Became VW passenger cars brand COO on Aug. 1, 2018.

Anger over leaks

Finally, Diess was furious over a media report that published an internal VW document revealing that as much as 60 percent of the Golf production on a single day could somehow be flawed.

Personally embarrassing for him was another that aired his demand for an early contract extension -- possibly hoping for an outward expression of confidence in the midst of all these difficulties.

During an internal conference with more than 3,000 managers, he accused directors of being the source of the leaks and hence breaching compliance.

"It was an unprecedented faux pas," an insider familiar with the board's thinking said.

The other source close to the board added: "He effectively accused company directors of acting criminally. It was a serious error."

Volkswagen's official position is that the management change coincides with the completion of the first phase of the brand's transformation plan, allowing Brandstätter to focus on VW's ambitious electric vehicle rollout.

But it's unclear whether shareholders will protect Diess through any more blunders, sources say.

Family loyalty

For now his position is secured by the Porsche and Piech family, fellow Austrians who control a majority of Volkswagen.

Deeply loyal, having supported ex-Audi CEO Rupert Stadler all the way up to his arrest two years ago, the two clans have virtually all of their wealth tied up in the company founded in 1937 by the German government, which commissioned Ferdinand Porsche for its first designs.

Should another executive as ambitious as Diess promise to steer the ship to calmer waters, they might dump Diess as quickly as they did his predecessor, Matthias Müller, who was CEO for less than two and a half years.

It's considered extremely unlikely Brandstätter could replace his boss as his support among labor leaders could discredit him in the eyes of the family.

"Look at his CV. He's from the hometown, starting out doing his apprenticeship as a shopfitter at Volkswagen in Braunschweig. And after getting his degree, he spent his whole career at the company," the source said, explaining Brandstätter's appeal to the labor bench. "He has the right background and pedigree for the unions."

That contrasts with VW Group purchasing and components chief Stefan Sommer.

Last week, the former ZF Group CEO behind the TRW acquisition elected to leave VW at the end of the month.

After less than two years in Wolfsburg, sources said, he was fed up with the parochial politics and didn't even bother to negotiate an exit package.

USA is A-OK

The group's American operations led by Scott Keogh, meanwhile, have little to fear from Wolfsburg's latest internal drama -- even if the pandemic and recession mean the unit will likely fall short of the goal of breaking even this year.

Software problems dogging the company's European ID3 model are also not expected to delay the U.S. launch of the key ID4 electric crossover in the spring.

Asked whether Brandstätter's promotion could affect the U.S. operations negatively, the company source said, "I wouldn't know why. Scott is doing a super job."

Diess has bought himself time by humbling himself before the board for his outburst.

In a statement, Volkswagen said that directors had accepted his formal apology for his "inappropriate and wrong" comments and "will continue to support him in his work."

Still, Diess might want to post lookouts in Austria's Zell am See, home to the Porsche family farm, to keep tabs on any Volkswagen executives leaving the Schüttgut estate of Wolfgang Porsche.

Word is the family is grooming 52-year-old Oliver Blume to one day take over as group CEO.

Like Brandstätter, he was born and raised just outside of Wolfsburg and is a career VW executive.

But he enjoys one major advantage: For more than four years, he's been successfully running the sports car maker that bears their dynasty's name.

Blume's day could come relatively soon, if Diess commits any more blunders.



Qualche dettaglio in più sulla posizione di Diess all'interno di Vw, molto difficilmente mangerà il panettone a Wolfsburg. Le famiglie Porsche Piech lo hanno salvato ancora ma difficilmente potranno difenderlo contro Bassa Sassonia e IG metall.

Mi rendo conto di non essere obiettivo è di avere una visione romantica, ma non perdono a Diess di avere mandato in vacca Bmw (sotto il profilo tecnico) per la ricerca ossessiva del cost cutting. Se sparisce dalla scena automotive, non lo rimpiangerò. Quanto a VW, un bel bagnetto di umiltà non dovrebbe fare male.

Osterloh andrà in pensione nel 2023, la sua erede sarà Daniela Cavallo, che nonostante il nome è tedesca.
Osterloh è stato beccato a prendere 800.000 euro l’anno come stipendio, nonostante le leggi del sindacato lo proibiscano. Naturalmente sta ancora al suo posto.

Era uscito indenne pure dallo scandalo dei festini messicani ...

Ho letto un po’ la storia di Daniela Cavallo, tedesca di prima generazione.

Quello era un altro Betriebsratschef, Klaus Volkert, faceva festini in ogni angolo del mondo, pagati dallo zio Ferdinand.
Naturalmente mica dava il voto in consiglio di sorveglianza per la Phaeton senza nulla in cambio.

Naturalmente mica dava il voto in consiglio di sorveglianza per la Phaeton senza nulla in cambio.


@Questo ma con un'accezione positiva

UNICH -- Audi CEO Markus Duesmann will also head the Volkswagen Group subsidiary's research and development division, the company said Thursday.

Hans-Joachim Rothenpieler, 62, will step down as Audi's current board member for technical development. During his 34 years with VW Group he has also worked at the VW, Bentley and Skoda brands.

Duesmann, a mechanical engineer who was BMW's purchasing chief and became Audi CEO on April 1, will "realign the premium brand’s development division with a special focus on process quality," Audi said in the release.

He is tasked with injecting new meaning into the brand's advertising slogan Vorsprung Durch Technik (Advancement Through Technology).

Audi has had nearly a half dozen R&D chiefs in less than a decade. During that time Audi’s reputation as a technology pioneer suffered as its technology began to lag rivals.

New industry disrupters such as Tesla have overshadowed Audi and its German peers BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Audi's role in VW Group's diesel emissions-rigging scandal also damaged its reputation. Audi engineers were accused of creating so-called "defeat" devices used to cheat diesel emissions tests.

Dusemann è ceo di Audi da solo 2 mesi ma sta accumulando un sacco di cariche, oltre ad essere diventato capo dell’ R&D di tutto il gruppo sostituirà Rothenpieler a capo dell’ R&D di Audi. Voci di corridoio danno Diess in uscita dal gruppo prima della mega riunione di novembre quando il consiglio di sorveglianza si riunisce per il piano quinquennale. Per far capire quanto sono lontane le posizioni Diess vorrebbe tagliare la capacità di Wolfsburg del 25% mentre Osterloh richiede di portare o la Octavia o la A3 nell’impianto della Bassa Sassonia per saturarlo.
Il nuovo ceo del marchio Vw Brandstätter già è pappa e ciccia con Osterloh, di tagli non se ne parla. Le quotazioni di Dusemann stanno salendo molto, il fatto di essere il figlioccio di Diess (alla BMW Diess era a capo della divisione acquisti, Dusemann era il suo vice) potrebbe danneggiarlo eppure ogni mese viene ricevuto a Salisburgo dalle famiglie Porsche-Piech. Blume rimane di gran lunga il favorito però Dusemann ha qualche chance.

Auto Motor und sport riporta alcune indiscrezioni sui tagli necessari al marchio Vw. Dato che Diess non è riuscito a tagliare il personale si dovranno liberare fondi dalla ricerca e sviluppo.
La Sportvan verrà cancellata e la Touran non avrà eredi, Vw punta a mantenerla sul mercato fino al 2025. La Touareg subirà un destino simile, rimarrà in campo fino al 2017. Anche le elettriche non verranno risparmiate, è stato bloccato il progetto Id Vizzion (una specie di berlina ammiraglia elettrica) mentre l’elettrica low cost dovrà essere rivista.

Klare Worte: "Dass man Nutzfahrzeuge für 20.000 Euro in Deutschland schlicht nicht mehr bauen kann ohne draufzulegen", habe auch der Betriebsrat eingesehen. Nun setzt Thomas Sedran, Chef der VW-Marke Nutzfahrzeuge, im Stammwerk auf natürliche Fluktuation. Und auf Premiummodelle.

Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge (VWN) wird Teile der Fertigung nach Polen verlagern und in den nächsten Jahren im niedersächsischen Stammwerk rund 5000 Stellen streichen. "Ein weiterer Hebel unseres Kostensenkungsplans ist, über natürliche Fluktuation am Standort Hannover die Belegschaft von 15.000 auf 10.000 Mitarbeiter zu reduzieren", sagte VWN-Chef Thomas Sedran im Interview mit der Automobilwoche.
"Gleichzeitig haben wir eine Arbeitsplatzgarantie bis Ende 2029 – all das natürlich mit dem Betriebsrat gemeinsam vereinbart", betonte der Manager. Die Arbeitnehmervertretung sei überzeugt worden, "indem wir aufgezeigt haben, dass man Nutzfahrzeuge für 20.000 Euro in Deutschland schlicht nicht mehr bauen kann ohne draufzulegen."

Höherpreisiges aus Niedersachsen

Dagegen hätten gut ausgestattete Fahrzeuge mehr Preispotenzial und könnten für rund 10.000 Mitarbeiter in Hannover Perspektiven bieten.
Künftig sollen VW-Nutzfahrzeuge für Gewerbekunden entweder aus Polen oder vom neuen VWN-Partner Ford kommen. Hingegen baut VWN in Hannover weiterhin Premium-Vans, auch der vollelektrische ID Buzz wird ab 2022 dort gefertigt.

Il ceo di Vw veicoli commerciali ha annunciato tagli per 5.000 dipendenti nell’impianto di Hannover, ha fatto una cosa rara, ha detto la verità ai sindacati: “con le regole attuali è impossibile produrre un veicolo commerciale ad Hannover che costi meno di 20.000 euro”.
Il prossimo T7 verrà dalla Turchia perché verrà prodotto da Ford.

Volkswagen Group is in talks to acquire French car-rental company Europcar Mobility Group in a deal that would allow the German automaker to better capitalize on its fleet, people familiar with the matter said.

The acquisition would come as Europcar struggles to cope with the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has weighed on travel around the world and sapped demand for car rentals.

It would represent a reversal for Volkswagen, which sold Europcar to investment firm Eurazeo in 2006.

Volkswagen has reached out to Europcar to express its interest in an acquisition and carry out due diligence, one of the people said Tuesday. The talks are preliminary and a deal is far from certain given the financial toll of the coronavirus outbreak on Europcar, the people added.

Europcar, which has market capitalization of 390 million euros ($441 million) and net debt as of the end of March of more than 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion), has also attracted interest from private equity firms, including Apollo Global Management, the sources added.

Volkswagen, Apollo and Eurazeo, which currently owns close to 30 percent of Europcar, declined to comment.

When Volkswagen divested Europcar in 2006, it said it could be a mobility services provider without owning a short-term vehicle hire company. A new deal for Europcar would allow Volkswagen to buy it back at a significant discount to the 3.32 billion euros ($3.6 billion) it sold it for 14 years ago.

Europcar is hoping to avoid the fate of U.S. peer Hertz Global Holdings, which filed for bankruptcy protection in May.

Last month, Europcar said it secured a 307 million euro ($347 million) financing package to manage through the coronavirus crisis, which included a 220 million euro ($249 million) loan guaranteed at 90 percent by the French state.

Curiosi corsi e ricorsi della storia. Fino al 2006 Europcar apparteneva a Vw che la vendette per 3,3 miliardi di euro, adesso potrebbe ricomprarla per circa 400 milioni di euro dato che la società francese è vicina al fallimento. Non mi sfugge il fatto che comprando Europcar i tedeschi troverebbero il modo perfetto per scaricare tutte le elettriche invendute.

Volkswagen has decided against building a new multibrand plant in Turkey because collapsing car sales amid the coronavirus has left existing plants struggling to operate at full capacity.

VW had picked Manisa, 40 km (25 miles) northeast of Izmir on Turkey's western coast, for the plant.

It was scheduled to build the next-generation Passat its sister model, the Skoda Superb, starting in 2022, with a maximum annual production capacity of 300,000 vehicles.

The Turkish factory, which would be VW Group's 133rd worldwide, would only add to the automaker's excess capacity, sources told Automobilwoche, a sister publication of Automotive News Europe.

VW will now build the next generations of the the Passat and Superb at its plant in Bratislava, Slovakia, the sources said.

The VW Passat is currently built for European markets in Emden, Germany. VW plans to replace Passat prodcution in Emden with a new electric vehicle from its ID family of battery-powered cars. The Superb is produced in Skoda's factory in Kvasiny in the Czech Republic.

In October last year, VW put the Turkish plant on hold amid international criticism of the country's military operations in Syria.

VW said the decision to halt the factory was taken because the coronavirus has led to a collapse in demand.

The automaker started planning the factory when overall economic conditions, particularly in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, were positive. That is not the case now, the company said in a statement emailed to Automotive News Europe.


Vw ha cancellato la costruzione di una nuova fabbrica in Turchia, molti impianti in Germania e in Est Europa non girano al massimo, con il coronavirus era folle pensare ad un altra fabbrica.
Di conseguenza la prossima Passat arriverà in ritardo e sarà prodotta a Bratislava.
