Wolfsburg, December 13, 2019 – In November, the Volkswagen Group delivered 988,800 ve-hicles to customers throughout the world, corresponding to a rise of 5.1 percent compared with November 2018. The Group therefore once again grew its market share in all key re-gions, in some cases considerably. The regions concerned included China, the Group’s largest single market. The Group boosted deliveries there by 5.1 percent despite shrinkage in the overall market. Significant growth was also recorded in Europe (+6.4 percent) and Germany (+9.1 percent). These rises were markedly higher than the moderate falls as a re-sult of WLTP in November 2018. The Volkswagen Group also succeeded in expanding its market shares in the regions of North and South America. Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales: “In November, the brands of the Volkswagen Group once again showed strong delivery performance. For the period from January to November, we exceeded the prior-year level for the first time this year, despite considerable adverse effects from the markets. We are confident that we will bring 2019 to a successful close.”
