Volkswagen to aid US dealers supporting coronavirus relief efforts
Wolfsburg, Germany: Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) said on Monday it would give financial assistance to its U.S. dealers who wish to use their loaner fleet to pickup and deliver essential supplies in areas affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The loaner cars, typically offered to customers to drive while their vehicles are in a shop for repairs, can be called upon for delivering food to a local food bank, transporting masks and gowns, and dropping off necessary items to those who are unable to leave their home, the automaker said.
Volkswagen said its dealers would not charge the group or person making such a request. - Reuters
