VW is pushing the electric car. And even more vehemently than a year ago. And the VW boss is asking the other automobile companies to drop the principle of openness to technology that was previously considered sacrosanct. No wonder that leading car managers are storming the taboo break.
“The fact that VW of all people wants to set the technological pace in the future is a perfidious kind of arrogance that the industry cannot actually accept. VW - the mother of almost all of our credibility problems as the pacesetter for drive technology. That is downright bold. ”So a senior manager of a Bavarian automobile manufacturer who does not want to be named. "I'm not a coward, but as a senior engineer I have to hold back publicly, although I've been very angry with VW since the exhaust gas fraud became known." The fraud has damaged the entire industry, so it should not be that everyone "behind VW should march ”.
