Ducati and VW Group

POSTED: 20/07/2023



Ducati and Volkswagen Group España Distribución today launched the project that will see the Volkswagen Group's Spanish subsidiary become the official importer for the Ducati brand in Spain and Portugal – except for the Canary Islands – as of January 1, 2024.

The presentation took place in Madrid, in an event attended by Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding; Francesco Milicia, Ducati's VP Global Sales and After Sales; Francisco Pérez Botello, President of Volkswagen Group España Distribución; and Carlos T. López Panisello, Ducati General Manager for Spain and Portugal.

Just as Ducati is integrated into the Volkswagen Group's international structure within the Brands Group led by Audi, Ducati will also be under the umbrella of the Audi Division within Volkswagen Group España Distribución, as there are important synergies between the two brands that will be developed in the coming years. López Panisello will report to Audi Spain General Manager José Miguel Aparicio.

Part of Completely Motoring Ltd (FCA Number 676043),

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
