Audi Start RS Q3 & RS Q3 Sportback at Hungaria Plant

Audi Hungaria is starting production of the two most powerful Audi Q3 derivatives: The Audi RS Q3 and the RS Q3 Sportback. The two sport compacts offer outstanding performance, athletic design, and maximum everyday usability. The legendary five-cylinder engine from Gyor provides a special driving experience. The Audi RS Q3 and the Audi RS Q3 Sportback are synonymous with strength and outstanding performance. Virtues that are also reflected in the design. The Singleframe with no color-contrasting surround in the compact SUV creates an even sharper impression. The gloss black grill with three-dimensional honeycomb structure is inset deeper and directly into the RS bumper with its large side air inlets. The striking boomerang-shaped blades in the bumper are designed exclusively for the RS Q3. The RS genes are also apparent in the flat slits above the Singleframe radiator grille.

Mr Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH said that “The new version of the Audi RS Q3** with our award-winning five-cylinder engine is a highly emotional model. With the RS Q3 Sportback**, we are adding a completely new RS model to the product portfolio of Audi Sport GmbH.”

Mr Zoltán Les, manager in charge of vehicle manufacturing at Audi Hungaria said that “So far, we are producing 13 variants of five basic models in Gyor. This level of complexity requires our employees to be precise, flexible, and extremely competent. I’m very proud of our team that has once again implemented two further model start-ups successfully.”

VW wil kennis elektrisch rijden delen

Gepubliceerd op 4 okt 2019 om 09:32 | Views: 871

WOLFSBURG (AFN/BLOOMBERG) - Volkswagen kijkt of andere autobouwers willen samenwerken op het vlak van elektrische auto's om kosten te delen. De Duitse autogigant investeert miljarden euro's op dat vlak en hoopt zijn kennis door te kunnen verkopen.

Volkswagen probeert Tesla te onttronen als belangrijkste bouwer van luxere elektrische auto's en pompt daarom veel geld in zijn dochterondernemingen Audi en Porsche. Volgens het hoofd ontwikkeling bij Audi is er "zeker" interesse in samenwerking. "We voeren gesprekken. Het delen van technologie om schaalvoordelen te verkrijgen is de enige manier om een ommekeer te bewerkstelligen voor elektrisch rijden."

Er wordt gewerkt aan een platform voor Audi en Porsche dat in 2021 de basis moet vormen van nieuwe volledig elektrische auto's. Met welke partijen wordt gesproken over een samenwerking werd niet bekendgemaakt.

Volkswagen Wolfsburg Plant Gets Lean and Green Management Award

The Volkswagen Wolfsburg plant receives the Lean & Green Management Award 2019 in the Automotive OEM category for its efficient and sustainable production. More than 250 plants from more than ten countries and 20 different industries participated in this competition. In terms of production efficiency, Volkswagen's main plant focuses on its "PQM" strategy - productivity, quality and crew. Every year more than 400 workshops take place, where the Wolfsburg workforce improves processes and thus reduces the production costs per vehicle. The plant consistently uses the Volkswagen production system, which describes the basics, standards and methods by which the manufacturing processes are designed, executed and constantly further developed.

The Volkswagen main plant is also on course for sustainability and the implementation of the environmental program “Zero Impact Factory”. An important building block for protecting the environment and promoting biodiversity are, for example, the process water basins located on the plant site. Thanks to the internal operating water cycle, every drop of water passes through the system about four to six times, helping to keep water consumption per vehicle very low.

The "Lean & Green Management Award" is awarded annually with the consultants Growtth Consulting Europe and Quadriga Consult and the trade publication AUTOMOBIL INDUSTRIE. The award was recently ranked as one of the highest rated sustainability awards in Germany in a study by the University of Hohenheim.

RIO digitizes Volkswagen Group Logistics

The digital brand of the TRATON GROUP RIO plans to support Group Logistics of the Volkswagen Group in digitizing their processes. The collaboration aims to make significant savings with more transparent and efficient processes. Volkswagen Group Logistics GmbH & Co OHG is one of the logistics companies in Germany with the highest turnover. In Europe alone, it coordinates a daily average of 18,000 truck transports in an extensive network of suppliers, production sites, sales markets and dealers. Group Logistics is managing a constantly increasing flow of materials and goods together with 13 Group brands and requires an efficient and future-proof IT solution to meet this challenge.

Mr Thomas Zernechel Head of Volkswagen Group Logistics said that “There is a huge amount of complexity involved in our business. The planned cooperation with RIO will allow us to push ahead with digitization in the transport sector and gain more transparency. This will enable us to optimally control and continue to finely tune our business to perfection. Optimising utilisation by further reducing empty runs and idle times will also help us to achieve our climate protection goals.”

More than 150 forwarders work with the Volkswagen Group. In the future, each truck in this network is to be registered in the same digital environment.

Porsche Increases Production in Zuffenhausen

Porsche builds another 500 new jobs. The company increases production in Zuffenhausen for the first purely electrically powered sports car. This is Porsche's response to the great worldwide demand for the electric sports car, which celebrated its world premiere at the beginning of September. After the completion of a Depositor program, far more than 20,000 prospective buyers had signed up. Orders received to date also indicate strong demand. As part of the new introduction of the Taycan, the sports car manufacturer is creating a total of 2,000 new jobs at its headquarters in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.

Taycan's original production capacity was 20,000 units. This continues to be the requirement for the first year of production. By increasing its workforce by the end of the second quarter of 2020, Porsche is providing itself with the necessary flexibility to be able to produce more units if necessary.

Mr Andreas Haffner, Member of the Executive Board for Human Resources and Social Affairs at Porsche said that "With the Taycan, we are showing that e-mobility is by no means a job killer. Rather, we are underlining its future viability, especially in the sports car segment. In addition, more than 32,000 applications show how great the interest is in shaping the future of the sports car together with us."

New Volkswagen R Presents Sportiest Models

The performance brand Volkswagen R represents the sportiest models in the Volkswagen portfolio. Since 2002, the R models have been at home on race tracks throughout the world and, in addition to high performance engines, have offered their owners the combination of everyday usability and stylish understatement. Along with the Golf R in four generations, the portfolio includes the Passat R36, the Touareg R50, the Scirocco R and the Golf R Convertible. Aside from the Golf R1 and the Golf R Variant2, the new T-Roc R3 is also currently available.

Volkswagen R is introducing its realignment with the presentation of the new R logo. The new R logo symbolises the performance brand’s fresh start. It is more modern, distinct and sleek: Reduced to its essential components, it can be used for various purposes, remaining particularly suitable for digital media. The new logo was developed at the Volkswagen Design Center. The team surrounding Klaus Bischoff developed the new R logo together with Technical Development and the Volkswagen R Marketing team.

The new company logo is characterized by the pristine line width and a clearly horizontal arrangement featuring dynamic curves. Moreover, the prominent diagonal line serves as a stark contrast, thus underscoring the brand’s overall progressiveness. The elongated R creates a broader, more powerful impression and defines Volkswagen’s commitment to performance and exclusivity.

Mr Jost Capito, Managing Director, Volkswagen R, said that “Volkswagen R is all about excitement and thrill, and in the future, we will continue to focus our efforts on integrating these emotions into the Volkswagen brand. We are taking a strategic and operative approach to working on great products and creating a unique customer experience.”

Verkoop Volkswagens trekt aan september

FONDS KOERS VERSCHIL VERSCHIL % BEURS
Volkswagen AG
152,65 2,55 1,70 % Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse (Xetra)
Volkswagen AG
152,85 2,50 1,66 % Euronext Brussel

(ABM FN-Dow Jones) Volkswagen heeft in september 10 procent meer auto’s verkocht dan een jaar eerder, toen de verkoop haperde omdat auto's met name in Duitsland eerst nieuwe emissietests moesten ondergaan. Dat bleek donderdag uit verkoopcijfers van gelijknamige Duitse autofabrikant.

Wereldwijd werden er in september 533.700 Volkswagens verkocht, wat 10 procent meer was dan een jaar eerder. Met name in Europa en Duitsland steeg de verkoop sterk, met respectievelijk 45 en 74 procent, ten opzichte van de zwakke septembermaand van 2018.

Daarnaast laat de verkoop in China en Zuid-Amerika nog steeds groei zien, wat tegen de trend in is. Hierdoor wint Volkswagen marktaandeel in een krimpende mondiale markt, stelde het bedrijf.

In Brazilië werden er 16 procent meer Volkswagens verkocht in september. Daarmee blijft het Zuid-Amerikaanse land de belangrijkste groeimotor van Volkswagen in die regio.

Over de eerste negen maanden van het jaar is het aantal verkochte Volkswagens nog altijd lager dan een jaar eerder met 4,51 miljoen stuks, een daling van 2,3 procent op jaarbasis.

Audi is Transforming into Electric Mobility

Audi is transforming into a provider of electric mobility a process that involves all areas of the company. After all, the brand with the four rings intends to put more than 30 electrified models on the market by 2025, which constitutes a 40 percent share in sales. In doing so, Audi is consistently pursuing the path of sustainable mobility. Accordingly, the areas of Procurement and Production are also aligning themselves more strongly with sustainability-related criteria. The skills and experiences from the development and production of the Audi e-tron will be incorporated into the upcoming projects for the all-electric models. The activities are flanked by comprehensive training and development concepts.

Audi is becoming a provider of integrated, carbon-neutral premium mobility with the goal of taking the leadership role in the competition. To this end, the manufacturer is accelerating its electrification road map and company-wide decarbonization. By 2025, the carbon footprint of the vehicle fleet across the entire life cycle is to be reduced by 30% as compared to 2015. In the future, the return on investment as the central financial control parameter will also show the CO2 performance of the four rings, with sustainable management helping to increase it to more than 21 percent.

Volkswagen ID.3 Communicates Using Light

The ID.3, the first model from the new all-electric ID. family stands for the future of the Volkswagen brand – with a large range, impressive driving dynamics, pioneering design and the innovative ID. Light concept. The intelligent light concept in the interior supports the driver visually and makes communication with the ID.3 more emotional. Not only does this car’s voice control obey your every word, the ID.3 also communicates visually with its occupants thanks to the completely new intelligent ID. Light concept. An LED strip that runs across the cockpit assists the driver by changing colour according to the current function. Once they have settled into the driver seat, ID. Light signals to the driver that the vehicle’s drive system is active and that the car has been unlocked or locked. It accentuates information issued by the driver assist and navigation systems and signals braking prompts and incoming phone calls. In conjunction with the navigation system, ID. Light reduces the stress of driving in traffic.

By blinking, it recommends changing lane and can also warn the driver if their ID.3 is in the wrong lane. ID. Light also supports voice control: it responds to the voices of vehicle occupants by sending a light signal. This indicates whether the voice control assistant is responding to the driver or the front passenger.

Volkswagen Passenger Cars Sales Update in September

In September, the Volkswagen brand delivered 533,700 vehicles to customers throughout the world, 10% more than the same month last year. Volkswagen is therefore winning market shares in a shrinking overall global market. The brand recorded the strongest growth in Europe (+45.4%) and especially in Germany (+73.9%). This was due to the marked fall in deliveries in September 2018, when vehicle availability was severely restricted as a result of the changeover to the new WLTP type approval procedure. In the USA and China, Volkswagen succeeded in maintaining or further expanding its market share in a generally shrinking overall market. The situation in South America was similar. Brazil remains the strongest motor for growth in deliveries in the region (+16.0%).

Deliveries in the regions and markets in September developed as follows:

In the month under review, Volkswagen delivered 132,300 vehicles to customers in Europe, corresponding to a rise of 45.4%. This was due to the special situation last year; as a result of the changeover to the WLTP type approval procedure in September, many customers had brought purchases forward to the first half of the year and deliveries in September 2018 were very poor as a result of availability bottlenecks. Volkswagen was well-prepared for the second stage of WLTP this year and there were therefore no negative effects. For this reason, Volkswagen grew more strongly than the overall European market, which only grew by 11.7% in the month under review, and was therefore able to increase its market shares.

In Western Europe, the brand recorded a rise of 50.7% in deliveries to 110,100 vehicles. In Germany, with 40,600 vehicles delivered, growth reached 73.9%. In Central and Eastern Europe, the Volkswagen brand handed 22,200 vehicles over to customers in the month under review, 23.7% more than in September 2018.

In September, developments in North America ran counter to this trend. In the region, Volkswagen delivered 43,300 vehicles,. 11.7% fewer than in September 2018 and developed almost in line with the overall market. The situation was similar in the USA, where the brand handed 26,900 vehicles over to customers, 11.8% fewer than in September 2018. There were two fewer sales days in the month than in 2018. The upcoming model replacement for the Passat also had an impact. The SUV segment continues to account for more than half of all vehicles delivered.

The situation for Volkswagen in South America remained gratifying. In the region, the brand recorded growth of 10.9%, with 42,900 vehicles delivered, in a shrinking overall market. In Brazil too, the upward trend of the brand continued. Volkswagen handed 33,600 vehicles over to customers, 16.0% more than in September 2018. In Argentina, Volkswagen succeeded in boosting its market share despite a fall in deliveries of 21.9% to 4,800 vehicles.

In the Asia-Pacific region, the Volkswagen brand grew in September 2019, in contrast to the shrinkage in the overall market. The Volkswagen brand handed over 300,700 vehicles to customers in the month under review, 2.2% more than in September 2018. In China, the overall market once again shrank. In contrast, Volkswagen delivered 287,000 vehicles, 3.3% more than in September 2018, and therefore once again expanded its market share.

In Central Europe, the manufacturer delivered 159,500 vehicles in the first nine months of the year, which keeps SKODA on the same level as last year (January to September 2018: 160,800 vehicles, -0.8%). In September, the automaker recorded 16,500 deliveries, +7.4% year-on-year (September 2018: 15,300 vehicles).

In September, deliveries in the region rose to 7,400 deliveries, +8.8% on the previous year (September 2018: 6,800 vehicles). Compared to last year, SKODA increased its deliveries significantly in the first three quarters in Slovenia (5,900 vehicles, +5.4%) and Croatia (4,800 vehicles, +6.3%).

In Eastern Europe excluding Russia, SKODA delivered 37,200 vehicles between January and September, recording growth of 10.6% (same period last year: 33,600 vehicles). In September, deliveries in this region increased by 13.0% to 4,100 vehicles compared to the previous year (September 2018: 3,600 vehicles). In the first nine months of the year, the carmaker recorded double-digit growth rates in Serbia (5,900 vehicles, +16.5%), Ukraine (4,200 vehicles, +13.3%), Bulgaria (3,600 vehicles, +18.5%) and Kazakhstan (800 vehicles, +56.3%).
