All key financial figures improved
Last year, the brand sold 6.23 million vehicles to customers – an increase of 4.2 percent over the previous year. With the Golf, Tiguan, and Polo, three Volkswagen models rank among the ten best-selling cars in the world. The brand registered the strongest growth in the SUV segment: 200,000 more units of the Tiguan were sold than last year, at a total of 720,000 vehicles. The Atlas, available in the US, and its Chinese sister model, Teramont, are already exceeding expectations just a few months after their launch. And the T-Roc, which has been available since the fall of 2017, is also in high demand. One out of seven Volkswagens sold is now an SUV. This is set to climb to up to 40 percent by 2020.
