Over 915,000 units handed over to customers up to end of February.
Brand Board of Management Member Jürgen Stackmann: „Volkswagen brand deliveries remain almost stable at global level.“
Deliveries by Volkswagen Passenger Cars for the first two months of the year remained almost stable at a high level, with the brand handing over more than 915,000 vehicles to customers. 394,400 units were delivered in February, slightly fewer than the same month last year.
„The second month of this year again reflects the mixed trend in markets and regions“, said Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand responsible for Sales, Marketing and After-Sales, summarizing the situation.
„Our customers remain loyal to us in what is a challenging period for our company and continue to place their trust in us. 15,000 customers in Europe, for example, have already chosen our new Tiguan since ordering began seven weeks ago“, Stackmann commented, and added: „I am looking forward to the market launch in April.“
The company handed over 126,400 (+3.7 percent) vehicles to customers on the overall European market in February, thus exceeding last year’s already high level. Deliveries in Western Europe also rose (+3.8 percent), mainly as a result of an increase in Italy. Moreover, Central and Eastern Europe recorded a rise of 3.0 percent despite the challenging market situation in Russia.
41,000 vehicles were delivered in the North America region in the second month of the year. In South America, 27,000 vehicles were handed over to customers in a persistently difficult overall market situation.
There was a slight decrease (-3.0 percent) in February in deliveries by the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand in China as a result of the late Chinese New Year. In total, Volkswagen Passenger Cars delivered 477,400 (+8.1 percent) units to customers in the first two months of the year, more than ever before.
