Prospects for 2016:

The Volkswagen Group’s brands will press forward with their product
initiative in 2016, modernizing and expanding their charity by
introducing new models. Our idea is to offer all business a mobility
and innovations they need, sustainably strengthening a competitive
position in a process.
We design that, on a whole, deliveries to business of a Volkswagen
Group in 2016 will be on a turn with a prior year amid persistently
challenging marketplace conditions, with a flourishing volume in China.
In further to a emissions issue, a rarely rival sourroundings as
well as seductiveness rate and sell rate sensitivity and fluctuations in
raw materials prices all poise challenges. We design certain effects
from a potency programs implemented by all brands and from the
modular toolkits.
Depending on a mercantile conditions – quite in South America and
Russia – and a sell rate developments and in light of a emissions
issue, we design 2016 sales income for a Volkswagen Group to be down
by as most as 5 percent on a prior-year figure. In terms of a Group’s
operating result, we design that a handling lapse on sales will
be between 5.0 percent and 6.0 percent in 2016.
In a Passenger Cars Business Area we design a pointy diminution in sales
revenue, with an handling lapse on sales in a approaching operation of
5.5 – 6.5 percent. With sales income in a Commercial Vehicles Business
Area remaining radically unchanged, we assume handling lapse on sales
will be between 2.0 percent and 4.0 percent. We design sales income in
the Power Engineering Business Area to be merely reduce than the
prior-year figure, with a significantly reduced handling result. For the
Financial Services Division, we are forecasting sales income and the
operating outcome during a prior-year level. Disciplined cost and investment
management and a continual optimization of a processes are integral
elements of a Volkswagen Group’s strategy.

The Annual Media Conference and Investor Conference will take place on
April 28, 2016 in Wolfsburg.
