Strong global deliveries for VW Group

The Volkswagen Group delivered 949,800 vehicles to customers worldwide in October, corresponding to a significant rise of 12.2 per cent compared with October 2018.

The Group further expanded its market share in all core regions, in some cases quite substantially. This was the case, for example, in China, the Group’s largest single market, where Group brands grew deliveries 6.6 per cent despite a shrinking overall market. Strong increases were once again recorded in Europe (+25.5 per cent) and Germany (+41.5 per cent) compared with the weaker performance in October 2018 as a result of WLTP.

The Volkswagen Group also succeeded in expanding its market shares in the regions of North and South America in shrinking overall markets.

Christian Dahlheim, head of Volkswagen group sales: “The Volkswagen Group brands produced a strong delivery performance in October. We outperformed the market in all core regions and once again substantially expanded our market shares, especially in China, our largest market. It is also pleasing to see that we made noticeable gains in our home market of Germany over and above making up the ground lost a year ago as a result of WLTP.”
