When it comes to technical innovations, German carmakers are way out in front in the Center of Automotive Management's rankings. VW is the front-runner and, together with Daimler, even leaves Tesla behind. However, new competition is emerging from elsewhere.
In an international comparison of OEMs, Volkswagen has the most technological innovations. This is the result of the annual innovation ranking of the Center of Automotive Management (CAM). "German automakers are doing very well so far from an innovation perspective," explained CAM head Stefan Bratzel. For the first time, three Chinese automotive groups also made it into the top ten of the innovation ranking.
