In 2019, the Volkswagen brand delivered 6,278,300 vehicles throughout the world, exceeding the prior-year figure by 0.5 percent, even if in Central and Eastern Europe, deliveries fell by 4 percent to 267,600 vehicles. In a shrinking overall market, the brand therefore significantly expanded its market share. Volume growth was achieved in Europe, South America, Asia-Pacific and the USA. Compared with the previous year, customers’ interest in electrified models grew considerably. More than 80,000 electric vehicles were delivered, corresponding to a marked increase of about 60 percent.
More than half of these customers opted for an all-electric vehicle and the remainder chose a plug-in hybrid.
