By  | 

There have long been rumors that Volkswagen and Ford might be thinking about working together and they have now made it official.

Both Volkswagen AG and Ford Motor Company have announced their global alliance today. They believe that this will help both companies compete better in the future.

They will start things off with two medium-size pickup truck and commercial vans for the global market. These are expected to arrive early next year. They are also looking to possibly work together on autonomous vehicles, electric and mobility services as well.

According to Dr Herbert Diess, Volkswagen;s CEO, Volkswagen and Ford will “harness our collective resources, innovation capabilities and complementary market positions to even better serve millions of customers around the world.”

Ford will now be working on building a mid-size truck that both these companies will offer while Volkswagen will start working on a city van. We can’t wait to see what will come from this alliance.
