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.
