Supplementary notes

The innovation capacity of companies in the car industry listed on the stock exchange is displayed. According to the source, the base for defining the innovation capacity was composed of data about research and development, internal operating figures, patent figures as well as industry related and economic factors from the past decade. More exact information on the date of survey is not given by the source.

* The total score displayed in the statistic was made up of results from singularly weighted categories, which are as follows: investments (weight: 20 percent); innovation performance (35 percent); innovation efficiency (10 percent); quality (20 percent); continuity (10 percent) and internationalisation (5 percent). Within the separate categories the score numbers result as follows: the company which scored highest in a single category receives 100 points. The points of the other companies were calculated proportionately in relation to that.

** Grammer: expenditures for research and development from 2004 to 2008 were calculated back, as no figures were available from the company.

*** Volkswagen group including subsidiaries Audi and Porsche.
