In April, the Volkswagen brand delivered 487,400 vehicles worldwide, 6.2 percent fewer than in April 2018. In the month under review, there were gratifying developments in the USA (+8.7 percent), Canada (+11.1 percent), Russia (+7.3 percent) and Brazil (+7.7 percent). Deliveries by Volkswagen in China were down 6.5 percent but the brand was able to further increase its market share in a shrinking overall market. Volkswagen Sales Board Member Jürgen Stackmann: “We offer extremely attractive models in overall markets which are difficult and shrinking in many cases. In North America, our SUV offensive is bearing fruit and has had a positive effect on the monthly figures. China remains a severe challenge for us and all other market players.”
