VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA REPORTS NOVEMBER SALES

Dec 1, 2015

  • November sales total 23,882 units
  • Tiguan delivered 3,907 units, an 87.7 percent increase over November 2014, marking the best November for the vehicle
  • The all-new Golf family of vehicles delivered 4,110 units, a 2.9 percent increase over the previous November
  • Golf GTI delivered 1,963 units for the month, a 13.8 percent increase over November 2014, marking the best November for the vehicle

Herndon, VA — (December 1, 2015) Volkswagen of America, Inc. (VWoA) today reported sales of 23,882 units delivered in November 2015.

The November sales results reflect the impact of the recent stop-sale for all 2.0L 4-cylinder TDI vehicles as well as for the 3.0L V6. The voluntary stop-sales were issued in light of notices received by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) regarding emissions compliance.

“Volkswagen is working tirelessly on an approved remedy for the affected TDI vehicles.  During this time we would like to thank our dealers and customers for their continued patience and loyalty,” said Mark McNabb, chief operating officer, Volkswagen of America.

The newly redesigned 2016 Passat entered showrooms earlier this month. Pricing for the 2016 Volkswagen Passat starts at $22,440—the same as the outgoing base model when equipped with an automatic transmission. When new content is factored in, this represents a $1,315 value enhancement over the base 2015 Passat.
