Lamborghini and Ducati to Remain in VW Group
With a need to slash costs and invest heavily in electrification, the Volkswagen Group considered spinning off some of its less essential luxury brands, Lamborghini, Ducati, and Bugatti. Early today, though, the Group announced that Lamborghini and Ducati are sticking around, though no announcement was made regarding Bugatti. Additionally, VW confirmed that Bentley would be placed under Audi control, as the two brands are set to share lots of electric-car technology in the coming years. All of this news came following a VW Group board meeting, where, as Automotive News Europe reports, the board backed CEO Herbert Diess after a power struggle and made concessions to Germany’s powerful labor unions.
