Holiday greetings directly from the Mittellandkanal: Thanks for "sensational first half of the year".

These are probably the most unusual holiday greetings in the history of Volkswagen: Group CEO Herbert Diess surfs in the port between the Autostadt and the power station – and says thank you to the employees for "a sensational first half of the year". Diess: "It was very difficult, but we have achieved an incredible amount. Thank you very much for your commitment. I hope you recover a bit. I do sports."

By the way: The surfboard on which Herbert Diess travels in the harbor was developed by colleagues from Audi. It is now coming into the market. Diess: "I ordered one... It's a lot of fun!"
