Volkswagen Group boosts deliveries in June

Volkswagen Group boosts deliveries in June
  •  Worldwide deliveries in June rise by 1.6 percent to 974,400 vehicles
  • Global market share significantly increased in a shrinking overall market
  • Emissions standard changeover provides positive stimulus in China (+15.0 percent)
  • Marked growth in Asia-Pacific more than sufficient to compensate for expected falls in Europe
  • In total, 5,365,300 vehicles delivered from January to June (-2.8 percent)

In June, there was a rise of 1.6 percent in deliveries by the Volkswagen Group compared with June 2018, to 974,400 vehicles. This positive development was chiefly driven by Chi-na, where 15 percent more vehicles than in June 2018 were handed over to customers. The new emissions standard C6 has applied since July 1, 2019, which led customers to bring purchases forward to June. There had been similar effects in Europe in June 2018. Vehicle deliveries in this region had reached a high level as a result of WLTP last June; as expected, there was therefore a fall (-4.8 percent) in June 2019. In North America (-0.5 percent) deliv-eries were slightly below those of the same month last year, South America (-0.1 percent) developed almost unchanged. Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales: “In June, the brands of the Volkswagen Group achieved good performance and boosted deliveries in overall markets that continued to shrink. In China, we benefited especially strongly from the positive impetus given by the changeover in emissions standards. It remains to be seen whether this will lead to a general turnaround there. All in all, we can look back on a successful first half of the year: the Group has maintained its position in a challenging market environment and expanded its global market share.”
