  • Worldwide deliveries in September rise by 9.2% to 904 200 vehicles
  • Market shares worldwide and in China significantly increased in shrinking overall markets
  • As expected, marked rises in Europe (+31.0%) and Germany (+58.1%) following low deliveries in September 2018 as a result of WLTP
  • In total, 8-million vehicles delivered from January to September (-1.5%)

In September, the Volkswagen Group delivered 904 200 vehicles to customers throughout the world, corresponding to a significant rise of 9.2% compared with September 2018.

The Volkswagen Group SA sold a collective of 8212 VW and Audi models during September, and exported 9760 units.

In a shrinking overall global market, the Group continued to significantly expand its market shares. As expected, this development was driven by Europe (+31.0%) and Germany (+58.1%).


Here, deliveries had been at an unusually low level in September 2018 as a result of restricted vehicle availability following the changeover to the new WLTP type approval procedure.

In the regions of North America and Asia-Pacific, the Volkswagen Group succeeded in slightly expanding its market shares in shrinking overall markets. In South America, the Group markedly boosted deliveries in contrast to the decreasing overall market and therefore significantly expanded its market share.

"In the current economic and geopolitical environment, which is tense, our strong brands are once again proving to be especially valuable. They offer our customers security for their purchasing decisions and therefore lay the foundation for the continual expansion of our global market share,"Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales said.
