    Volkswagen to make brands more distinct to boost efficiency

    Volkswagen will make its three mass-market brands more distinct to reduce overlaps and defuse tensions within the carmaking group, its chief executive said on Thursday. CEO Matthias Mueller said the automaker's executive board had set out a new focus for its mass-market VW, Skoda and Seat brands based on 14 customer groups in its core European market. "The key challenge is (to achieve) a perfect market coverage with clear territories for the brands," he told a strategy meeting of about 400 managers in Wolfsburg.

    VW plan could herald spin-off for car parts: analysts

    Volkswagen's (VOWG_p.DE) plan to cut costs by creating a new car parts business could unlock funds for its move to electric vehicles and herald an eventual spin-off that could transform its profitability, analysts said on Wednesday. Shackled by its powerful labor unions, VW makes more parts, such as transmissions, in-house at high German labor costs than most rivals like BMW (BMWG.DE) and Daimler (DAIGn.DE), weighing down the core brand's profitability. Wolfsburg-based VW has been reviewing its assets and brands since announcing its electric-car plans in June 2016, and put up non-automotive assets for sale earlier this year, including motorcycle brand Ducati.

    VW says no plans for now to shift Skoda production

    Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) said on Friday there were no plans at present to change where Czech subsidiary Skoda makes its cars, as it seeks to allay the fears of unions and politicians in the republic about losing work to Germany. Skoda's main union on Thursday threatened to cut back on overtime work if the VW group were to shift output to Germany. Facing possible cuts in production capacity at home, Volkswagen managers and labor leaders want to benefit from Skoda's success by taking on some of the Czech company's work in Germany and make the lower-cost stablemate pay more for shared technology, company sources have said.

    Exclusive: VW seeks to curb competition from Skoda - sources

    Volkswagen managers and unions are seeking to curb competition from lower-cost stablemate Skoda, move some of its production to Germany and make the Czech brand pay more for shared technology, company sources told Reuters. As VW struggles to cut jobs and spending at German factories and turn the page on dieselgate, Skoda's superior car reviews and profitability have intensified the brands' rivalry within the Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) empire. VW now wants to reduce what it sees as Skoda's unfair advantages - combining German technology with cheaper labour - and reaffirm the top-selling brand's primacy ahead of a wave of new electric car launches, the sources said.
