Volkswagen investigates options for truck division’ (Volkswagen is investigating the strategic options for its truck division. In doing so, an IPO of the component is not ruled out in the long term, insiders said. The company itself says that it keeps all options open.
The legal structure of the discussions on the future of the truck division (MAN, Scania) is on the table. It is expected that the conversations will still take some time.
Car manufacturers worldwide are faced with radical organizational changes. The sector has to do with drastic shifts to electric and autonomous driving. Digital services are also becoming increasingly important.
By making the truck division more independent, the confidence of investors in Volkswagen should increase. The company would like to show in the aftermath of the diesel scandal that it is prepared to make major changes in the organization.
