The Volkswagen Group will invest a total of EUR 85.6B in new models, innovative technologies and its global presence in its Automotive Division over the coming five years.

As a Group, we have the expertise and financial strength to continue to extend our technology leadership and to reach our goals for 2018.” Investments in property, plant and equipment, investment property and intangible assets, excluding capitalized development costs in the Automotive Division will amount to EUR 64.3B across the planning horizon as a whole, on a level with the planning approved in the previous year for the period from 2014 to 2018. In addition to spending on capex, the plans also include capitalized development costs of EUR 21.9 billion and proceeds from asset disposals of EUR 0.6B, net of investments in financial assets. The Group will spend most of the total capex in the Automotive Division on modernizing and extending the product range for all its brands.
