The chief executive of Volkswagen has apologised for evoking a Nazi slogan to describe the importance of boosting the group's profits.
Herbert Diess used the line "Ebit macht frei" at a company event on Tuesday.
The phrase echoes the maxim "Arbeit Macht Frei" - meaning "work sets you free" - which was famously emblazoned in wrought-iron on the gates of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
Ebit is a commonly used acronym for "earnings before interest and taxes".
