Clearly, it is a question of highlighting the development opportunities of its subsidiaries.
“Whether it 's

Oliver Blume, who took control of the group at the beginning of September.
Listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Volkswagen operates around ten car brands in different segments: luxury (Lamborghini, Bentley), high-end (Audi, Cupra), mid-range (Volkswagen) or entry-level (Skoda, Seat).
It is also present in the motorcycle (Ducati) and in the truck (Scania).
This interest in the stock market is not naive: Oliver Blume sees it as a way to finance the investments needed to massively produce electric cars.
Part of the 19 billion euros collected by Volkswagen with the stock market listing of Porsche will be used for this priority project.
The possible listing of other subsidiaries could also allow the German group to reassess its own value on the stock market: it weighs only nearly 90 billion euros, against 950 billion for Tesla.
