FRANKFURT -- Volkswagen Group CEO Herbert Diess on Thursday said a victory by Democrat Joe Biden in the U.S. presidential race would better suit the German automaker's efforts to mass produce electric cars across the globe.
"A Democrat program would be more aligned with our worldwide strategy to fight climate change to go electric," Diess said on a Bloomberg webcast on Thursday.
That said, VW established "really a trustful relationship with the Trump administration and government," Diess said. "We did a lot also to contribute to build America."
VW is in the midst of a global push to launch electric vehicles in China, the U.S. and Europe, and is betting on economies of scale to make battery-driven cars more affordable.
"The United States, when it comes to market share, is the weakest region in the world," Diess said.
