Article by Christian A., on June 17, 2015

Amid mixed market trends, the Volkswagen Group’s deliveries increased by 0.3% to 4.19 million units from January to May 2015. Last Friday, Group Board Member for Sales Christian Klingler said that even with the wide range of young and eco-friendly models, the Group’s brands are “not entirely immune” to the present situation.

For the month of May, its deliveries dropped by 2.6% to 858,000 units compared to the same month last year. Klinger also said that the market remains “tense” in South America and Russia. He added that developments in Europe “continue to be positive.” Meanwhile, the market in China has changed and has transitioned into a new normality.

In the overall European market, group brands’ deliveries went up 3.3% to 1.73 million units in the period from the start of the year to May. Of this figure, 936,200 units were delivered in Western Europe (excluding Germany), standing for a 6.3% climb from last year’s 880,900 units. In Germany, deliveries grew by 6.5% to 545,700 units.

Meanwhile, deliveries in Central and Eastern Europe dropped by 11.8% to 250,700 units. In Russia, deliveries continued to fall, with a 40.8% decline to 69,900 units from 118,100 units. From January to May, the Group’s deliveries increased by 5.6% to 370,900 in the North America region (from 351,200 units last year).

Of this figure, deliveries in the U.S. increased by 1.6% to 241,800 units (from 237,900 units last year). During the same period in South America, the Volkswagen Group’s deliveries declined by 23.3% to 248,300 units from 323,700 units the past year. Of this number, deliveries to Brazil decreased by 30% to 177,800 units in the same period from 254,100 units last year.
