Volkswagen sees deliveries in January decline

Volkswagen sees deliveries in January decline
  • Worldwide deliveries in January down 3.4 percent year-on-year to 515,500 vehicles
  • Positive momentum from Russia and Brazil 
  • Market share in China expanded in spite of delivery decline
  • Mixed trends in Western Europe, North America weaker

The Volkswagen brand delivered 515,500 vehicles to customers worldwide in January, a drop of 3.4 percent compared with the same month in 2018. Positive delivery trends in Russia (+10.9 percent) and Brazil (+10.8 percent) could not offset decreases in China (-3.1 percent), Western Europe (-4.8 percent) and North America (-8.6 percent). Volkswagen Board Member for Sales Jürgen Stackmann: “As expected, we could not quite match the January 2018 record level this year. Volkswagen won market share in China in a persistently uncertain overall market, despite the decline in deliveries. The order balance is high and, as announced, we are working hard on expanding capacity for our petrol engines in order to better serve high demand during the course of the year. New models such as the T-Cross and the Passat facelift that debuted recently will be launched in the coming months and provide a tailwind.”
