The Volkswagen brand delivered 586,400 vehicles worldwide in November 2019, thereby registering a growth of 3.9 percent compared to November 2018. Volkswagen made further gains in market shares in a shrinking overall global market. That also applies to China, the brand's largest single market, where Volkswagen grew deliveries by 4 per cent. The company registered significant growth in the US market as well, with a jump in sales of 9.1 per cent, while the growth registered in Brazil was 12.3 per cent. VW grew by 20.2 per cent in its home market Germany as well.
Volkswagen Sales Board Member Jurgen Stackmann, "Especially in China, we still see considerable potential following the successful launch of the Jetta sub-brand. We look forward to the final spurt in December - of course we want to continue the positive momentum of the brand."
The deliveries of the brand in the cumulative period are at the level of the previous year. Volkswagen's sales figures worldwide bring in a renewed growth sentiment for the company and with the German carmaker putting its India strategy into motion, expect sales from the Asian markets too to help in its growth story.
In Europe, Volkswagen handed over 152,800 vehicles to customers, corresponding to a significant rise of 6.4 percent. Deliveries in the North America region developed positively in November. Volkswagen handed 47,100 vehicles over to customers in the region, 0.9 percent more than in November 2018.
In the USA, deliveries rose significantly by 9.1 percent to 29,200 vehicles. This was the best November for the brand in the USA since 2016. In the Asia-Pacific region, too, the Volkswagen brand grew deliveries by 3.1 percent in the month under review in contrast to the shrinking overall market. The brand handed over 330,100 vehicles to customers.
