Volkswagen Group delivers 9.93 million vehicles in 2015

  • CEO Matthias Müller: “Systematically making the Group fit for the future.”

The Volkswagen Group handed over 9.93 million vehicles to customers worldwide in 2015. “Delivering almost ten million vehicles is an excellent result, particularly in view of the continued challenging market situation in some regions as well as the diesel issue in the final quarter of last year”, Matthias Müller, CEO of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, commented in Wolfsburg on Friday, and went on to say: “While developments on markets in Brazil and Russia had a noticeable impact on deliveries by our brands, we made advances in Europe. We also recorded further growth in the North America region and in the USA.” According to Müller, 2016 will be no less challenging: “On the one hand, as a global company we must handle the situation on world markets where trends remain mixed. And on the other, it is our wish and intention to systematically make the Group fit for a successful future.” He said that not only involved overcoming the crisis, but above all related to the fundamental realignment of the Group. Müller added: “We are currently preparing our ‘Strategy 2025′, which for me is the most important step towards a modern Volkswagen.”

3.43 million customers in Western Europe took possession of a new vehicle from the Volkswagen Group in 2015, representing a rise of 4.8 percent. The delivery situation in Germany remained positive at the end of the year (+4.0 percent). The Volkswagen Group also reported increases on other markets in Western Europe. Growth was particularly strong in Spain (+16.1 percent) and Italy (+8.8 percent). The tense situation in Russia (-36.8 percent) continued to impact deliveries in Central and Eastern Europe. As a result of these developments, the Volkswagen Group delivered more than four million units in one year for the first time in the overall European region.

The company also recorded growth in North America in 2015, handing over 931,800 vehicles there. At 607,100 units – an increase of 1.2 percent – the United States accounted for the lion’s share of these deliveries. Group deliveries in the tense South America region, however, continued to fall (-29.8 percent). This trend is chiefly attributable to deliveries in Brazil, which totaled 389,900 units.

The Group delivered 3.93 million vehicles in the twelve-month period in the Asia-Pacific region, of which 3.55 million units were handed over to customers in China, the Group’s largest single market.

  • Regional variations in Volkswagen brand’s delivery performance in 2015. Europe and China remain important pillars.
  • Brand Board of Management Member Jürgen Stackmann: “We continue to focus on winning back customers’ trust while looking ahead with new products as we shape the future of this great automobile brand.”

Volkswagen Passenger Cars delivered 5.82 million vehicles to customers worldwide in the full year 2015. “The Volkswagen brand did a good job last year in the face of challenging conditions. Regional performance varied quite considerably due to market factors. Above all Europe, together with China, remain important pillars for sales,” explained Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand responsible for Sales, Marketing and After-Sales, and added: “In 2016, we will continue to focus on winning back customers’ trust because customer satisfaction is and will remain one of our most valuable assets. At the same time we are optimizing our global selling power and stepping on the gas with new models.” He said the new Touran* was in the middle of the market launch phase, the new Tiguan* was lined up and ready to go. With the Beetle Dune* and the GTI Club Sport*, the brand was launching two really fun-to-drive models. Stackmann continued: “All Volkswagen employees are highly motivated and are working on shaping the future of this great automobile brand and continuing to build outstanding cars.”

The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand delivered a total of 1.50 million vehicles in Western Europe in 2015, representing a rise of 4.7 percent. The brand recorded growth, sometimes quite significant, in Germany (+3.9 percent), Spain (+13.9 percent) and also Italy (+5.8 percent). Developments in Central and Eastern Europe were very mixed. While the situation in Russia proved challenging throughout the year (-38.8 percent), deliveries in countries such as the Czech Republic (+42.1 percent) and Poland (+8.5 percent) grew, in some cases quite strongly.

The brand delivered a total of 2.84 million units in the Asia-Pacific region in 2015. In China, its largest single market, the company returned to a positive trend in the last quarter, and also recorded a slight rise (+0.3 percent) in the month of December. Stackmann added: “That makes us optimistic we will be able to carry this momentum into the first quarter of 2016.”

Volkswagen Passenger Cars grew deliveries by 0.9 percent in North America in the full year. The slight decrease in the United States (-4.8 percent) contrasted with growth in Canada (+7.1 percent) and Mexico (+11.8 percent). The situation in the South America region remains tense. 458,200 vehicles were handed over to customers there in 2015. The challenging situation in Brazil (-38.0 percent) continues to dominate developments in this region. Overview of deliveries by the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand:
