FOR the fourth consecutive time, technical innovations by Volkswagen not only impress award committees and journalists, they also impress the Center of Automotive Management (CAM).
CAM, in cooperation with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) AG WPG, rated the Wolfsburg-based company a winner in less that four categories: the main award of the 2014 AutomotiveINNOVATIONS Awards which is the award in the category of “Most innovative automotive company,” world’s best manufacturer in the “Conventional drives”, “Alternative drives” and Networked vehicle categories.
In their official rationale for selecting Volkswagen, CAM and PwC stated: “The number of innovations and company further increased to nearly 230 this year. Volkwagen impressed us with enormous range of innovations in all technological fields and with several highly innovative brands in the group.”
The Center of Automotive Management (CAM) in Bergisch-Gladbach is an independent institute for empirical research on automotive and mobility issues, and it conducts the extensive study together with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) AG WPG. This year’s analysis covered 18 global automotive companies and a total of 53 brands.
