VWoA Reports November 2018 Sales Drop 8%; Audi Down 11%

Dec. 3:  VWoA reports sales for the year-to-date up 4% (322,017) over 2017.  November’s numbers, however, were down, as were many other carmakers.  VW delivered 26,789 units during November.  Atlas and Tiguan comprised 46% of its sales.  

The 2019 Jetta (9,207;+10%) sits atop the ledger, followed by the new Tiguan (6,794;+30%), Atlas (5,233;+2%) and Passat (2,156;-31%). The Golf family, which includes the Alltrack, found 2,488 takers (-42%).  VW sold only 300 Golf hatchbacks and 338 Beetle coupes.  According to a VW dealer representative, a stop-sale and low inventories of 2019 model-year vehicles reduced deliveries.

For the year, VW’s SUV sales were up 137% but car sales are down 30%.  The Tiguan (old and new) reigns as VW’s most popular model (94,480) ahead of the Jetta (80,544).  

Audi says November sales of 17,082 were down 11%.  This is the second month of sales declines at the four-ring brand.  The recently arrived A6, A7 and A8 models sales were up 26%, 76% and 43% respectively.  During October, their deliveries fell.  

The Q5 is Audi’s top-selling model (5,889; +8%), followed by the Q7 (2,971;-10%); A6 (1,682) and A4 (1,635;-45%).
