1950 - VW is also stressing the point that autonomous cars can give time back to drivers while making mobility more accessible and more relaxing than it is currently.
However, as Mark Tisshaw notes: "it's interesting that VW has mentioned nothing of driver pleasure or the driver being able to take back control in its autonomous presentation, which is in stark contrast to others including Ford and Mercedes-Benz."
As other car makers have already pledged to do, Volkswagen says it will reinvent itself from a car manufacturer into a mobility company.
1945 - Key messages from Volkswagen tonight focus on how cities could look by 2025, when autonomous cars are mainstream. As Mark Tisshaw notes, that future is only nine years away. VW says around 1.25 million lives could be saved each year by using autonomous cars, as 91% of accidents are currently down to human error.
1940 - Müller is speaking passionately about the dawn of autonomous driving, saying that the automobile "has the best times ahead of it. VW has a bright future. Building the best cars won't be enough nor having the best software - we must merge both."
1937 - A big focus from Müller on electric models - remember that VW is planning a radical new electric model for 2019, which you can read about here.
1935 - More from Müller: "We will not be paralysed by the crisis. Quite the opposite, we must use it to leapfrog the next technical innovations.
"There will be traditional combustion engines, from three to 16 cylinders and from natural gas to gasoline."
Müller says that automotive industry "will undergo a similarly radical transformation as media, retail and consumer eletronics. Unless we want to be relegated to being a mere hardware maker we must develop like the technology industry. We must think and act quickly, pragmatically and with vision."
Interestingly, Müller believes that, in time, electric cars will be cheaper to buy than conventional models.
1930 - Volkswagen boss Matthias Müller takes to the stage: "We are aware we've breached ethical limits and broken trust. It is all about re-establishing that trust again. 2016 is the year where we intend to solve the problem of our diesel engines and lay the foundations for a better Volkswagen.
"We lay these plans with respect but we are also confident we can resolve it and emerge from the issue stronger than we entered it."
