    Transformation requires clear communication

    Our team handles all current media inquiries, press releases, interviews and statements. The VDA Newsroom is the center of the Press and Digital Department. Here we monitor the media situation, the current discourses and debates - of course also on the various social media channels. The press office and the digital editorial team are always in close contact. They work together to ensure that all relevant topics are presented accordingly on the association's website and all other channels.

    Here your press inquiries reach us directly and centrally: cvd@vda.de

    The press office team provides the communication of the VDA on a daily basis concerning transport, economic and climate policy as well as detailed technical external communication. The spokepersons are contacts for all national and international media. They stay in close contact with everyone who writes and broadcasts about the automotive industry, the transformation of the industry and sustainable individual mobility, be it in print, digital, broadcast or podcast.

    The VDA is present on selected digital channels and explains the topics and attitudes all around modern mobility. The team communicates primarily on LinkedIn and YouTube and whatever platform may emerge in the future.
