Significant increase of 6.6 percent in China despite shrinking overall market

Further strong rises in Europe (+25.5 percent) and Germany (+41.5 percent) following a weaker performance in October 2018 as a result of WLTP

8.96 million vehicles delivered from January to October (-0.2 percent)

The Volkswagen Group delivered 949,800 vehicles to customers worldwide in October, corresponding to a significant rise of 12.2 percent 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 percent despite a shrinking overall market. Strong increases were once again recorded in Europe (+25.5 percent) and Germany (+41.5 percent) 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.

Dr. 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.”

In detail, deliveries in the regions in October developed as follows:

370,700 vehicles were delivered in Europe, corresponding to a marked rise of 25.5 percent compared with the same month last year, when deliveries were at a low level due to the changeover to WLTP. Striking growth in Western Europe (+30.7 percent) and the home market of Germany (+41.5 percent) is attributable to the same reason. 299,600, respectively 112,400 vehicles were handed over to customers in these markets.

 There was also a strong 7.5 percent rise in deliveries in Central and Eastern Europe to 71,000 vehicles. One driver of this positive trend was Russia, where Group brands delivered 22,100 vehicles, 3.7 percent more than in the same month last year.

In the North America region, overall markets shrank, but the Group was nevertheless able to grow deliveries. In total, 80,400 vehicles were handed over to customers, a rise of 0.9 percent compared with the same month last year. 53,200 vehicles from Group brands were delivered to customers in the USA (+5.8 percent). In Canada, deliveries amounted to 11,200 vehicles, an increase of 1.4 percent. In a shrinking overall market in Mexico, there was a 13.0 percent drop in deliveries to 16,000 vehicles.

In the South America region, deliveries were 1.2 percent down on the level for the same month last year, and amounted to 53,800 vehicles. The downturn in the overall market was more pronounced, and the Group therefore also expanded its market share in this region. In Brazil, Group deliveries rose 2.9 percent to 43,000 vehicles. The overall economic environment in Argentina remained challenging. 5,300 vehicles were handed over to customers there, a drop of 24.4 percent compared with October 2018.

Overall markets in the Asia-Pacific region fell sharply, but the Volkswagen Group nevertheless grew deliveries by a strong 5.6 percent to 413,300 vehicles. This positive trend was driven by China, the Group’s largest single market. In a shrinking overall market, deliveries there grew strongly by 6.6 percent to 389,300 vehicles, thus again significantly boosting the market share.
