In an overall market, which shrank even more strongly, Volkswagen was able to gain market shares throughout the world.


In February, the Volkswagen brand delivered 398,100 vehicles throughout the world, 2.2% fewer than in February 2018. In an overall market, which shrank even more strongly, Volkswagen was able to gain market shares throughout the world. The brand delivered more cars in Germany (+3.4%), Europe (+1.8%) and South America (+45.6%).

Falls in deliveries were recorded in North America (-4.2%) and China (-8.8%). In China, too, the brand won further market shares despite strong shrinkage in the overall market.

Volkswagen Sales Board Member Jurgen Stackmann said, "Volkswagen has made a solid start to the new year. The brand is developing better than the overall market and we continue to win market shares. It is gratifying to note that this is also the case in China. The situation there remains the greatest uncertainty for our business this year. Nevertheless, in view of our well-filled order books and our upcoming new models, I am confident that 2019 will again be a successful year for our brand."
