Volkswagen’s success continues in August

Volkswagen’s success continues in August
  • Deliveries up 3.7 percent to 513,300 vehicles
  • Growth path successfully continued, 26 percent increase in Europe
  • 4.1 million vehicles delivered from January to August – new record
  • Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Sales: “We will be able to deliver far fewer vehicles in September due to changeover to WLTP test procedure”

The Volkswagen brand handed over 513,300 vehicles to customers worldwide in August, representing an increase of 3.7 percent compared with the same month of the previous year and a new record for the month of August. All in all, 4,137,900 vehicles were delivered from January to August, a rise of 6.2 percent compared with the corresponding period of the previous year, and a further record. Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Sales, commented: “August was another strong month for the Volkswagen brand in many markets: we posted record deliveries for the month of August and for the period January-August. We will be able to deliver far fewer vehicles in Europe in September due to the changeover to the WLTP test procedure. October will also get off to a subdued start, but we are expecting a strong performance from the Volkswagen brand in November and December in particular.”
