Two of the most powerful automakers, Audi and Porsche, which come under the Volkswagen Group, might be coming together to collaborate on vehicle development. This will help benefit the world’s largest carmaker to save money in the wake of its costly emissions test cheating scandal.

Volkswagen (VW) Chief Executive Matthias Mueller, previously Porsche’s CEO and Audi’s head of product management, has finalised the plan to establish a step up development of autonomous cars, electric vehicles and digital services.

As of now, the focus for both Audi and Porsche is a deal that follows a period of intense in-house competition for development resources. According to Times of India, the coming months, joint teams will prepare the specific areas of cooperation and define a roadmap to 2025, they said.

With self-driving vehicles likely to play a major future role in the industry, Audi also develops autonomous cars for the group. But a separate internal race has begun to become an engineering hub for electric vehicles, a field which includes research and development of battery cells, battery packs and electric motors, read the report.
