VW records high deliveries for 2019
Despite shrinking overall markets, the Volkswagen Group grew its worldwide deliveries by 1.3 per cent to 10,974,600 vehicles in 2019.
Market shares were expanded in all regions, in some cases significantly. Volume growth was achieved in Europe (+3.9 per cent) and South America (+3.2 per cent) while there were slight falls in North America (-0.5 per cent) and Asia-Pacific (-0.4 per cent).
Strong growth was recorded with electric vehicles. As a result of many new models within the framework of the Group’s electric offensive and growing interest on the part of customers, there was a rise of around 80 per cent to more than 140,000 vehicles.
