New Record: Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand Delivers Almost Two Million Vehicles in Period to April

WOLFSBURG, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 --


  • January to April: 4.6 percent increase to 1.99 million units
  • 513,400 vehicles delivered in April / +6.8 percent

The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand delivered almost two million vehicles for the first time in the first four months of a year. 1.99 (January-April 2013: 1.91) million vehicles were handed over to customers in the period to April, representing an increase of 4.6 percent. The brand delivered 513,400 (April 2013: 480,900; +6.8 percent) units in April. "Volkswagen Passenger Cars grew deliveries yet again in April. On the one hand that is due to good sales developments in China and Europe, and on the other it is attributable to sustained high demand for products such as the Golf, now in the seventh generation of its 40-year history, where the success story continues," Christian Klingler, Board Member for Sales and Marketing for the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, said. "However, the global market is still a mixed bag and therefore remains challenging," Klingler added.

Volkswagen Passenger Cars delivered 567,800 (545,300; +4.1 percent) vehicles on the overall European market in the first four months, of which 298,400 (279,300; +6.8 percent) were handed over in Western Europe (excluding Germany). Deliveries on the home market of Germany rose slightly to 184,100 (180,500; +2.0 percent) units. Developments in the Central and Eastern Europe region in the period to April were stable, with deliveries running at 85,300 (85,500; -0.2 percent) units. The company handed over 45,800 (49,500; -7.4 percent) vehicles to customers in Russia during the same period.

The brand recorded a 16.2 percent increase in deliveries in the Asia- Pacific region in the period to April, handing over 993,400 (855,100) vehicles. 921,400 (783,900; +17.5 percent) models were delivered in China (incl. Hong Kong) during the same period. Volkswagen Passenger Cars delivered 182,700 (196,200; -6.9 percent) vehicles in the North America region in the period to April, of which 118,200 (131,800; -10.4 percent) models were handed over to customers in the United States. In the South America region, deliveries from January to April declined to 183,900 (235,200; -21.8 percent) units, of which 144,700 (175,600; -17.6 percent) were handed over in Brazil.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
