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. Around two-thirds of the total investment amount will flow into increasingly efficient vehicles, drives and more environmentally friendly production. This is the result of the Group’s investment planning for 2015 to 2019 discussed by the Supervisory Board of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft at its meeting. “We will continue to invest in the future to become the leading automotive group in both ecological and economic terms – with the best and most sustainable products”, said Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, in Wolfsburg. “Development costs will remain high in the future as a result of high innovation pressure and increasing demands on the automotive industry from CO2 legislation. 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.
