The green light has been given for the vehicle architecture of the future: Oliver Blume and Rupert Stadler, the Board of Management Chairmen of Porsche AG and AUDI AG, plan to cooperate even more closely. The objective of the new initiative is to shape the mobility of the future together.
Through the application of development capacities, additional scope is to be created for the topics of electrification, digitization & autonomous driving. This will enhance competitiveness so that the two companies can optimally utilize the opportunities for future model generations and better meet the challenges.
Collaboration within the Volkswagen Group is nothing new. Audi, VW and Porsche have worked together successfully for many years in the area of SUVs, and with the new development cooperation, Porsche and Audi are positioning themselves for the next decade. In the coming months, joint teams will prepare the specific areas of cooperation and define the roadmap as far as 2025. The focus is on the joint development of vehicle architectures, modules and components. Project work will take place in various areas, each of which will be jointly headed by a representative of each brand.
