Special: Consumption realistically calculated

The WLTP to determine fuel consumption values came into force on September 1. This produces more realistic results than the previous NEFZ tests, making it more representative and customer-friendly.

There will still be discrepancies between the testing results and true road values, but these will be reduced.

Drive Technologies: Our driving force: moving away from oil

Cars of the future will be emission-free. This has been and remains the ambitious goal of the German automotive industry.

We stand by our goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Germany up to 40 percent by 2020.

Digitalization: Dawn of the digital future

Digitalization is changing the way we live and get from A to B. We are developing the mobility of tomorrow one step after the other.

By implementing systematic networking, one-fifth of the traffic jams in Germany could be avoided.

Safety: Moving ahead safely

A future without traffic accidents? Thanks to new technologies and networked vehicles, this does not have to remain just a vision.

The number of fatalities in Germany has already fallen by two-thirds since 1993.

Urban mobility: The city as a laboratory for the future

The world is becoming more and more urban. Innovative mobility concepts will ensure that cities remain nice places to live in the future.

In 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population is expected to be living in cities.
