Volkswagen saw a growing demand this year, even if the Dieselgate was not easy to be forgot. The Passenger Cars division managed to deliver 511,500 vehicles worldwide in October, 4.4 percent more than the previous year. A total of 4,886,400 vehicles were handed over to customers from January to October. As a result, cumulative deliveries by the  Volkswagen brand again exceeded the previous year’s level (+1.0 percent).

Volkswagen brand deliveries in the overall European market decreased by 7.0 percent in October compared with the previous year to 132,400 vehicles. The majority of these models – 112,500 units – were delivered in Western Europe (-8.5 percent). 43,000 vehicles were handed over to customers in the home market of Germany, a decline of 21.1 percent. 

7,000 units were handed over to customers in Russia, an increase of 1.0 percent compared with the previous year.

Deliveries in the North America region in October were down on the previous year at 46,400 vehicles (-9.8 percent). In the USA, deliveries compared with the previous year decreased by 18.5 percent to 24,800 units. This year’s upward trend in Mexico continued in October, with Volkswagen handing over 16,500 vehicles, representing a marked 7.9 percent increase compared with the previous year.

The situation in the South America region remained tense. 22,300 vehicles were handed over to customers there in October, an appreciable 36.0 percent decline compared with the previous year. Brazil remains the key factor for this negative trend. The region’s largest market is currently struggling.

In contrast, the Asia-Pacific region again developed well in October. 291,900 vehicles were delivered to customers there, a sizeable increase of 19.4 percent compared with the previous year. The market in China was the main driver of the growth in worldwide deliveries.
