Το πρώτο εξάμηνο του 2015 η Volkswagen ήταν η αυτοκινητοβιομηχανία με τις περισσότερες πωλήσεις νέων αυτοκινήτων αλλά η Toyota, κατά τη διάρκεια του 3ου τριμήνου ανέκαμψε και βρέθηκε ξανά στη κορυφή.

Η Ιαπωνική εταιρία, κατά τη διάρκεια των 9 πρώτων μηνών του 2015 πούλησε συνολικά 7.498.000 αυτοκίνητα, με το VW Group να πουλά 7.430.000 αυτοκίνητα, ενώ η GM πούλησε 7.200.000 αυτοκίνητα. Τόσο η Toyota όσο και η VW είδαν τις πωλήσεις τους κατά το πρώτο εννιάμηνο να υποχωρούν κατά 1,5%, με την VW να βλέπει τις πωλήσεις της στη Κίνα να μειώνονται κατά 7,4%. Η GM από τη δική της μεριά, είδε τις πωλήσεις να μειώνονται κατά 1,9% κατά τη περίοδο Ιανουαρίου-Σεπτεμβρίου.

Volkswagen Group delivers 7.43 million vehicles to customers in first three quarters

Deliveries by the Volkswagen Group from January to September remained almost stable compared with the prior-year level, with 7.43 million vehicles handed over to customers worldwide. Overall, developments in Europe were positive. Western Europe in particular reported growth; most countries in Central and Eastern Europe following suit, although this was not sufficient to offset the downturn in Russia. Deliveries in the United States also rose slightly. The Company improved its performance in China, with deliveries in September almost on a par with the prior year.

Group brands grew deliveries by 3.5 percent on the overall European market in the first three quarters, handing over a total of 3.07 million vehicles to customers. 2.62 million customers took possession of a new vehicle in Western Europe, an increase of 6.1 percent. The situation in Germany also remained positive; 971,200 vehicles were handed over to customers on the home market, representing an increase of 4.6 percent in the period to September. The Volkswagen Group also recorded growth on other markets in Western Europe. Above all Spain (+17.5 percent) and Italy (+9.1 percent) have seen strong growth since the beginning of the year. As a result of the continued tense situation in Russia, there was a downturn in deliveries in Central and Eastern Europe, where the Group handed over 451,600 vehicles in the period to September, of which 127,300 units were delivered on the tense Russian market.

Group deliveries in the North America region from January to September were up 5.8 percent to 693,100 units, of which 453,500 – an increase of 3.2 percent – were handed over in the United States, the region’s largest market. The South America region continues to feel the effects of the challenging situation in Brazil, the region’s largest market, where deliveries by the Volkswagen Group fell by 33.4 percent to 308,600 vehicles in the period to September. As a result, deliveries in the entire region dropped to 439,700 units.

The Group delivered 2.88 million vehicles in the Asia-Pacific region in the first three quarters, of which 2.58 million were handed over in China, the Group’s largest single market.

GM Sold 7.2 Million Vehicles in the First Nine Months of 2015

DETROIT – General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) sold 7.2 million vehicles globally in the first nine months of 2015. The company posted sales increases in four of its five largest markets, with record sales in China and strong retail sales gains in the United States. Total sales were down 1 percent, due primarily to the company’s previously announced decisions to strategically reduce its presence in certain markets, as well as difficult market conditions in South America.

“Our unwavering focus on the customer is paying off in our largest and most important markets as we execute one successful launch after another in the right segments,” said GM President Dan Ammann. “At the same time, we have reacted quickly to challenging macroeconomic environments in other markets and have shown the discipline to exit situations where we see no long-term path to acceptable returns.” Examples of GM’s recent success include:

  • GM truck sales in North America were up 16 percent in the first nine months of 2015, driven by a 17 percent increase in Chevrolet truck deliveries in the United States.
  • Chevrolet had record crossover sales in North America in the same period, up 17 percent year over year.
  • In China, crossovers like the Chevrolet Trax and Buick Envision represented more than 17 percent of sales by GM and its joint ventures in September, up from 6 percent a year ago.
  • Cadillac had record sales in China with deliveries rising 12 percent to nearly 57,000 units.

GM is preparing to launch even more new trucks and crossovers during the next several months, including the all-new Cadillac XT5, a redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and a diesel-powered Chevrolet Colorado for North America, and the Baojun 560 in China. Key car launches include the all-new Chevrolet Malibu and Cruze in North America and the Opel Astra in Europe.

Additional Highlights (vs. 2014)

First Nine Months

  • In the United States, Chevrolet has reported six consecutive months of retail sales and market share gains and has strategically reduced sales to rental companies by more than 50,000 units through September.
  • Opel/Vauxhall increased its European market share and grew sales in 19 countries, including Italy, Spain, France, the U.K. and Germany.
  • Buick had record deliveries in China, with sales up 4 percent to nearly 670,000 units.
  • Baojun had record sales, with deliveries rising 236 percent to more than 270,000 units.
  • GMC’s global sales increased 11 percent, and four of the brand’s SUVs and pickup trucks – the Yukon, Yukon XL, Sierra and Canyon – have the highest average transaction prices of any vehicles in their respective segments in the United States, according to J.D. Power PIN estimates.

Third Quarter

  • Among GM’s largest markets, sales rose in the United States, the U.K. and Canada.
  • Opel/Vauxhall, Buick, Cadillac, GMC and Baojun all reported higher sales.
  • Chevrolet had record crossover sales in the United States, up 24 percent, while Chevrolet U.S. truck sales increased 16 percent.
  • Deliveries in South Korea were up 11 percent to record of nearly 43,000 units.
  • Global sales were down 3 percent.
