VW is considering building an ID.3 convertible - here's what's happening to the rest of the family

VW's brand chief Ralf Brandstätter and Herbert Diess, the umbrella group's CEO, have teased a convertible variant of the ID.3 e-car on social media, asking the public for their opinions.

VW urges decision on Bugatti - sale to Croatian upstart Rimac is in the offing

VW is focusing on the electrification of its group brands. The expensive Bugatti prestige project with its W16 engines no longer fits the concept. Porsche CEO Oliver Blume announced in an interview with Automobilwoche that a decision on the brand's future will be made before the end of the first half of 2021. There is much to suggest that the young electric brand Rimac Automobili from Croatia will take over Bugatti. Porsche could increase its stake in Rimac in return. Visit the Business section...

Audi wants to turn the price screw - from March these cars will be more expensive

Surcharges are a done deal for the majority of small and mid-size models as well as the increasingly popular crossover and SUV models. Audi makes exceptions for pure electric cars and plug-in hybrids - as well as for its A7 and Q8 fat cats. The current chip shortage could lead to longer delivery times, as it has for competitors from Daimler & Co. - in which case "old price protection" is supposed to take effect at Audi.

Porsche still does not want to manufacture in China and instead consistently relies on "Made in Europe"

China has now also become the most important sales market for Porsche. In 2020 alone, the Stuttgart-based company was able to sell almost 89,000 cars there. Nevertheless, the sports car brand would like to continue producing its cars only in Europe. This is what CEO Oliver Blume indicated to the Financial Times.

In return, the Tiguan's interior feels more solid. Those who can cope with the limited range could be quite happy with the entry-level ID.4. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories.
