Volkswagen's new strategy involves 30,000 jobs cuts and a plan to have 30 new hybrids and e-cars by 2025. But will it really help them make it out of the Dieselgate doldrums?
From diesel fraudster to pioneer of sustainable mobility: that's how German automotive giant Volkswagen wants to transform itself. The e-cars are also to be produced in a carbon-neutral way. How can this be achieved?
VW is to build a new electric vehicle at its plant in the US city of Chattanooga, expecting to sell a million of them by 2025. The German giant is also moving closer to announcing its partnership with Ford.
US carmaker General Motors (GM) has announced 14,000 job cuts and the closure of several plants worldwide, including four in the US. President Donald Trump is furious, but he's partly to blame, says DW's Henrik Böhme.
The North American International Auto Show is still the biggest and premier auto show in North America. But, this year, only one German carmaker bothered to show up. Maya Shwayder reports from Detroit.
