During today's works meeting held at the Wolfsburg plant, Dr. Herbert Diess, the CEO of the Volkswagen brand, praised the work done by the company's approximately 200,000 employees around the world. The year of 2017 was a strenuous and difficulty one, Diess said. Nonetheless, Volkswagen was able to turn it into a very successful one, he added. The company must now remain on this course in months to come and speed up its efforts, the executive said. With 6.23 million deliveries, the brand set a sales record last year. In the process, it played a major role in the success of the entire Group as well.
