  • CEO Matthias Müller: "Systematically making the Group fit for the future."

The Volkswagen Group handed over 9.93 million vehicles to customers worldwide in 2015. "Delivering almost ten million vehicles is an excellent result, particularly in view of the continued challenging market situation in some regions as well as the diesel issue in the final quarter of last year", Matthias Müller, CEO of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, commented in Wolfsburg on Friday, and went on to say: "While developments on markets in Brazil and Russia had a noticeable impact on deliveries by our brands, we made advances in Europe. We also recorded further growth in the North America region and in the USA." According to Müller, 2016 will be no less challenging: "On the one hand, as a global company we must handle the situation on world markets where trends remain mixed. And on the other, it is our wish and intention to systematically make the Group fit for a successful future." He said that not only involved overcoming the crisis, but above all related to the fundamental realignment of the Group. Müller added: "We are currently preparing our ‘Strategy 2025', which for me is the most important step towards a modern Volkswagen."
