Volkswagen Group delivers fewer vehicles in July

In July, there was a drop of 2.4 percent in deliveries by the Volkswagen Group compared with July 2018, to 886,100 vehicles. In Europe, deliveries fell by 3.6 percent to 393,600 vehicles. This development had been expected as deliveries in July 2018 had been especially high as a result of the WLTP changeover. In the regions of North America (-0.9 percent) and Asia-Pacific (-0.3 percent), deliveries were slightly below the levels for July 2018. There was a pos-itive development in South America (+3.2 percent) compared with the same month last year. Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales: “The Volkswagen Group has made a solid start to the second half of the year and has once again slightly increased its market share in a global market that is generally shrinking. It is especially gratifying to note that we have grown in our most important market, China, despite the general downward trend in the market.”

Efficiency record in the “Green Hell” – The Volkswagen ID.R’s ground-breaking lap of the Nordschleife in figures

The electric record on the iconic Nordschleife with a remarkably low amount of energy: Exactly two months ago, Volkswagen achieved an electromobility milestone with the ID.R. The fully-electric ID.R raced through the 20.8-kilometre “Green Hell” in a time of just 6:05.336 minutes and at an average speed of 204.96 km/h – and all whilst using just 24.7 kWh of energy. This meant the ID.R was not only significantly faster than a GT3 sports car, but also consumed only a quarter of the energy over the course of one lap. The ID.R is the sporty forerunner and prototype for the ID.R family, with which Volkswagen will bring E-mobility to the streets for everyone from 2020. Technology used successfully during the record attempts with the ID.R will be incorporated in production vehicles.
