Top performance for Volkswagen in first half yearTop performance for Volkswagen in first half year
  • Vehicle deliveries up 6.3 percent in first half year to 3.12 million vehicles
  • June also excellent month with 534,000 vehicles handed over to customers
  • Global upward trend in first six months

The Volkswagen brand continued on its growth path in the first half year, delivering 3.12 million vehicles in the first six months, an increase of 6.3 percent compared with the same period last year. Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Sales, commented: “We can look back on a successful first half year. The fact that the Volkswagen brand grew 20 percent in Brazil is worthy of special mention. In Europe, over 100,000 orders for the T-Roc have already been placed since the market launch. In Germany, the 5 models with the highest registrations in May all came from Volkswagen. The second half of the year will be significantly more challenging. We anticipate delays of certain model lines in Europe as a result of the switch to WLTP.”
