  1. VW is on the journey and exactly on his own destination path. I’m not taking care of the hybrids, they are a temporary appearance that you probably have to sell a few years if you do not want to leave the business to others. That’s the fate of a mass manufacturer. VW is a giant and other giants in the industry is seen that one is slowly powerful.

    The only thing that costs really performance is the chip deficiency. As a result, the basic models can be deleted, which is commercially comprehensible, but, very smart, the lower price segment did not lose broke, but now builds the e-up a little further. Anyway, this is a temporary thing. Cells have been cleverly secured about long-term billions of deals.

    Who is the competition? In any case Toyota, definitely GM and definitely Ford. Hyundai is at least to be considered. It is particularly not to mention that the largest of the mentioned Toyota, obviously did not recognize the signs of time. So you could even win market shares ..

  2. Human David, you resisted your otherwise typical Tesla rabies-bite reflex (TTB) – was that very difficult?
    Congratulations from my side.

    However, that is probably only due to the marketing spin specified by VW.

    Just sound better if you, for example, the proportion of US market at 7.5% than 2.Celebrate place and the distance to the market leader Tesla with over 65% simply not mentioned.

    But for such cherry picking, you also get your luscious salary and the company car &# 128521;

    I’m curious how VW will justify the likely loss of these market shares at the end of this year for Europe and Germany &# 128521;
    Whether the reintroduction of an e-up with negative margin will range to keep the total number of vehicle sales high – you will see &# 128578;

    How can the all the other “small companies”
    come to chips worldwide, where they all need to shop at the “cat table” and VW yes the full support of worldwide suppliers as a number 1 customer “enjoys”?

    The chip deficiency is therefore increasingly losing credibility as an excuse for falling sales figures &# 128578;

    Time wants Tell &# 128521;
