The VDA – The guarantor of future mobility

Sustainable and modern mobility are the main objectives of the VDA. The VDA nationally and internationally promotes the interests of the entire German automotive industry. It can bank on a strong power base of members consisting of automobile manufacturers, suppliers and manufacturers of trailers, special bodies and buses. Unlike in many other countries, they are organized under one association, resulting in decisive advantages for the German automotive industry through direct dialogue and rapid decision-making.

In the interest of all its members, the VDA is active in all areas of the motor traffic industry like economic and transport policy, technical legislation, quality assurance and taxation. In addition, the environment and climate protection are of particular importance. The VDA is also the organizer of international motor shows for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, which always draw the great interest of the experts and public alike.
