Volkswagen Group wins further market shares

Volkswagen Group wins further market shares
  • 998,900 vehicles (-4.3 percent) delivered worldwide in March
  • Last month’s gains in Europe and North America could not compensate for lower deliveries in Asia and South America
  • Market shares further expanded in March in a shrinking global market
  • Group’s first-quarter deliveries totaled 2,605,600 vehicles (-2.8 percent)

The Volkswagen Group handed over 998,900 vehicles to customers worldwide in March, corresponding to a fall of 4.3 percent compared with March 2018. In Europe (+0.6 percent) and North America (+3.7 percent), more customers took delivery of a vehicle from one of the Group brands than in the same month last year. However, this could not compensate for lower deliveries in the Asia-Pacific region (-9.9 percent) and South America (-10.2 percent). Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales, commented: “As was the case in the first two months of the year, the Volkswagen Group again performed better than the global market in March and won further market shares. This confirms the great appeal of our brands and their products. We ended what was, as expected, a challenging first quarter with deliveries exceeding 2.6 million vehicles and high order backlogs, and are somewhat more optimistic, particularly as regards the second half of the year.”
