This statement was made by the CEO of the company Herbert Diess. Moreover, initially the Germans were not going to develop production in this area, limiting themselves only to patents.

Everything changed when Tesla decided to use its own processors in the new generation of its autopilot. Moreover, such electronics for the manufacturer of electric cars is produced by Samsung.

Volkswagen decided to keep up with its main competitor: the Germans want to start producing their own processors through a contractor. Only now he is going to develop them on his own. The German business newspaper Handelsblatt writes about it.

For Volkswagen, the launch of production of its own processors is a serious step that will help the automaker strengthen its position in the global car market. This is especially true in connection with the desire of the Germans to become the first in the segment of electric cars, as well as to succeed in the niche of autonomous cars.

Autopilot on its own processors will help in this brand.
Moreover, the first drones with the Volkswagen logo will have to wait until 2025. So there is time to put the processor production on stream.
