A good corporate design can provide the best possible support here. Our new appearance gives identity, both internally and externally.”

Jason Lusty, Head of Group Marketing & Brand Strategy: “The new corporate design has several tasks. It expresses the strategic ambitions of the Volkswagen Group and represents its new mindset. It also differentiates the appearance of the corporate brand from the Volkswagen brand. The corporate design offers a flexible framework that is progressive and high-quality on the one hand, while remaining accessible and human on the other.”
