Press Release: Request to the Media Representatives: Together against Fake News

During these challenging times regarding the coronavirus, an increasing number of different fake news are circulating in social media. Even the high-tech company AVL is repeatedly confronted with manipulative, fake news. This is why we would like to ask you as a responsible media representative: If you receive any suspect information, please contact the AVL press office (contacts below). We will be happy to assist you in verifying genuine content.

​​​​​​​The coronavirus pandemic is profoundly changing the everyday life of each and every one of us. As a globally active company that is always aware of its responsibility, AVL quickly recognised the seriousness of the situation and
immediately implemented several measures to protect our employees and, of course, our customers and suppliers.

​​​​​​​One of these measures is the creation of a special AVL task force to monitor developments in the various markets. Subsequently, effective measures necessary to maintain business operations, communication and, above all, the protection of our employees and customers will be decided in close consultation with AVL’s management.

​​​​​​​AVL is the world’s largest independent company for the development, simulation and testing of powertrain and energy production systems (combustion engines, transmissions, electric motors, hybrid drives, batteries, fuel cells and software) for passenger cars, trucks and large engines. AVL has more than 10,400 employees all over the world. In 2018, sales revenues reached EUR 1.75 billion.
