Around the tracks: TikTok user criticised for Tesla Autopilot stunt

Volkswagen seeking ‘aggressive’ climate activist to bypass internal bureaucracy

The Volkswagen Group is on the lookout for a young climate change campaigner to “aggressively” aid and facilitate the marque’s environmental initiatives, as reported by the Financial Times. Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess believes the company is hindered by internal bureaucracy and is slow to react in the shift towards electric vehicles. “We have so many ideas,” Mr Diess said. “But they take too long to implement in our big organisation, so I need someone really aggressive internally.”

Volkswagen confirms new SUV for China and USA

Volkswagen has confirmed a new sub-Tiguan crossover for sale in markets like China and the USA. As reported by Automotive News Europe, company CEO Herbert Diess says the new crossover – dubbed "Volks-SUV", or the people's SUV – will be produced in Mexico and exported to global markets from 2020. However, the Volks-SUV will not be sold in Europe, where the T-Roc already fills the sub-Tiguan role and appeals better to the region's tastes for a smaller and sportier-looking vehicle.
