The Volkswagen Group today officially launched its new mobility services company at the “Tech Crunch Disrupt” technology event in London. With MOIA, the automaker is systematically driving forward its transformation into a globally leading provider of sustainable mobility. “MOIA will help us gain a deeper understanding of new forms of mobility and how to make them even more attractive in future, to offer a much broader scope than at present and to tailor these services to suit very wide-ranging needs. Even though not everyone will still own a car in future, MOIA can help make everyone a customer of our company in some way or another”, Matthias Müller, CEO of the Volkswagen Group, said.

The automotive industry is undergoing rapid change. Alongside the traditional automobile business, innovative, digitally networked mobility services promise a high growth dynamic. With MOIA, Europe’s largest automaker is laying the foundations throughout the Group and across all brands for sustained success in tomorrow’s world of mobility. What is more, the Volkswagen Group intends to generate a substantial share of its sales revenue from this new business by 2025.

“MOIA is a stand-alone company under the Volkswagen Group umbrella, and will develop and market its own mobility services either independently or in partnership with cities and existing transport systems. In parallel, the Group brands will continue to move forward with their own services. Our sights are set on becoming one of the global top players for mobility services in the medium term. To achieve that we will be seeking to attract the best minds and technology start-ups”, Ole Harms, CEO of MOIA, said.

The Volkswagen Group’s new company, which will be headquartered in Berlin, will begin operating with a team of around 50 – with this number growing fast up to the end of 2017. “The metropolis of Berlin is the perfect location for a future-oriented and innovative company like MOIA because this is where we will find the creative minds and start-ups we need to establish our new business activities. With MOIA, we want to demonstrate that innovative mobility solutions are possible outside of Silicon Valley”, Harms explained.
