Volkswagen Group has long been planning to venture into the growing market segment of on-demand taxi solutions. The company had recently announced its plans to open an independent arm in order to develop its business in the field of mobility services. Now, it has made a strategic investment of US$ 300 million in Gett - a global ride hailing platform.

Formerly called Get Taxi, Gett has its original development facilities located in Israel, and is often touted as one of Europe's biggest ride hailing platforms. Having presence in more than 60 major cities across the globe including London, New York and Moscow, Gett allows users to book rides through a smartphone app. In addition to transportation, Gett covers delivery and logistics.
