We want to become the Global Champion.

We don’t want to become the biggest – we want to be the best. We will achieve this through regional market leadership, global expansion, and as a driver of innovation—including with our strategic partners. Long-term, sustainable growth is our key to success. Within the Group, we are bundling resources and creating synergies that make us faster and stronger than our competitors. As a team, we will maximize and exploit the full potential of our Group.

Together with our brands, we have a clear mission: driving transportation to the next level. Because better transportation makes a better world. The transport industry is redefining itself in the era of digitalization, sustainability, and urbanization. We are bundling our innovative power and want to actively shape the future of transportation. To achieve this goal, we are investing in electric mobility and alternative fuels as well as digital innovation and new business sectors. We can only successfully shape the future together with our customers if we have intelligent and innovative products.

We are following this strategy to develop ourselves from a start-up to a strong and efficient company – without losing that “start-up” spirit.
