The VDA nationally and internationally promotes the interests of the entire German automotive industry in all fields of the motor transport sector, for example in economic, transport and environmental policy, technical legislation, standardisation and quality assurance. In addition, the VDA organises, under its own auspices, the IAA International Motor Show, which is held every year. The IAA Passenger Cars is held in odd-numbered years and in even-numbered years it is the turn of the IAA Commercial Vehicles.
The members of the association are companies that operate a plant in the Federal Republic of Germany for the industrial production of motor vehicles and their engines, trailers, special bodies and containers and vehicle parts and accessories.
From these manufacturing sectors, about 510 companies with a total of 710,000 employees have joined the association. The head office of the association is in Frankfurt-am-Main. The VDA also has offices in Berlin and Brussels.
