Volkswagen brand delivers almost six million vehicles in 2013

Germany’s Volkswagen increased sales at its core passenger-car brand by 3.3 % in December to 535,200 autos, as volume growth in China offset shrinking demand in European markets.

Also, the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand closed 2013 with a new record, delivering 5.93 (2012: 5.74; +3.4 %) million vehicles to customers for the first time ever in a twelve-month period.

“There has been further growth for the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand in spite of the challenging market conditions. Our new Golf in particular has done extremely well in its first full year on the market and has strengthened Volkswagen’s competitive position”, Christian Klingler, Board Member for Sales and Marketing for the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, commented. “We will be facing new and difficult challenges in 2014, but we are very well prepared thanks to our young and sustainable product range.”

On the overall European market, where the situation remained difficult, Volkswagen Passenger Cars delivered 1.64 (1.70; -3.7 %) million vehicles, with the home market of Germany down 4.4% to 560,100 vehicles.

In the Asia-Pacific region the brand enjoyed a substantial 15 % increase in deliveries for the full year, handing over 2.73 (2.37) million vehicles to customers, of which 2.51 (2.15; +16.6 %) million were delivered in China (incl. Hong Kong), the region’s largest single market.

Volkswagen handed over 616,800 (623,300) vehicles to customers in the North America region, of which 407,700 (438,100; -6.9 %) units were delivered in the United States. The company handed over 720,400 (836,600; -13.9 %) vehicles in South America over the same period, of which 550,800 (661,000; -16.7 %) were delivered to customers in Brazil.
