CEO: Volkswagen willing to collaborate on software

Volkswagen Chief Executive Herbert Diess said on Friday the carmaker is willing to make partnerships with other manufacturers when it comes to developing new software.

Speaking for Der Spiegel, Diess noted that Volkswagen is "open to discussions and prepared to share its platform." The development relates mainly to designing operating systems for autonomous driving, which traditionally has a very high one-time cost for companies.

Therefore it is important for the software to be used on as many car models as possible, Diess concluded.
