Shaping Mobility – The Volkswagen Podcast – Episode 8

Volkswagen ID.VIZZION concept car

It’s almost unprecedented for our mobility to be changing as rapidly as it is today: electric models race from one sales record to the next, software updates determine the strengths and weaknesses of our cars. Autonomous driving is on the verge of evolving from a vision into a business model – and climate neutrality will be a requirement for all future transport services.
