Our automotive future is formed by social conditions and trends. It is our task to anticipate the future needs of our customers and to convert these needs into innovative technologies.

The technological challenges of the future can only be mastered by intensive research and networked cooperation both inside and outside the company. Our mission is to continue meeting our customers’ wishes for individual and affordable mobility through sustainable technologies. We work together with our partners to achieve this goal.

Group Research researches for all Group brands. International trend-scouting and technology scouting form part of our strategic orientation and we also operate from research bases in the US, Japanese and Chinese markets.
