    VW to Cut $2 Billion in Costs by Offering Fewer Trims, Variants

    The automaker identified a way to save around $2 billion, which will cut trim levels and variants in its lineup. “We from the works council have long flagged the huge range of model variants and different components. That brings enormous complexity and adds to costs, for example, for logistics. We can take out costs there on a large scale and don’t have to talk about job cuts,” said labor representative Bernd Osterloh in a briefing with journalists in Wolfsburg, Germany, last week.

    This is one way to make the VW brand more drab than it currently is.
