The mood at the VW-owned carmaker SEAT is especially anxious after VW's emissions scandal. Nearly a third of the Spanish manufacturer's sales comes from the Volkswagen Group. Business is still going well, but no one knows for how long.
Amid concerns that he could flee the country, German police have taken Porsche manager Jörg Kerner into custody. The emissions scandal has spread from Volkswagen's core VW division to many other brands within the group.
In a major leadership reshuffle at Volkswagen, chief executive Matthias Müller is set to make way for VW brand chief Herbert Diess. DW's Janelle Dumalaon says the choice is obvious, if potentially painful.
Herbert Diess will replace Matthias Müller as VW CEO. He has a reputation for driving through difficult changes. From his days reining in costs at BMW, the Austrian has often irritated unions — and delighted bosses.
With a new boss known for finding efficiencies installed at VW, it appears that change is coming for Europe's largest car group. Yet workers at the company’s Wolfsburg headquarters are calm and positive about the future.
