CLIFF LEPPKE'S CYBER SEAT

VW’s July 2018 Sales Up 12.7%, Beats Market Trend

VW’s U.S. year-over-year July 2018 sales were up 12.7% (30,520).  This beat the industry average (-3.7%).  VW’s top selling models were Jetta (6,938), Tiguan (6,636) and Atlas (6,499).  For the year, VW’s sales are up 8.01% (203,418).  VW’s car model sales slid -22.2% (Passat) to -43.2 % (Golf family).  In contrast, SUV deliveries increased by 397.6% Atlas and 1,019.1% Tiguan.  Those awesome numbers are skewed due to low start-up production figures.  Nonetheless, VW’s SUV lineup offset its slumping car sales.

Audi posted a 2.1% increase (19,221).  Its Q5 leads the four-ring pack (6,512; +58%), followed by the A4 sedan (3,433; +17) and the Q7 (2922; -12%).  For the year, Audi sales are up 4.4% (127,163).

About the Volkswagen Club of America

The VWCA (Volkswagen Club of America) is a not-for-profit hobby club for owners and enthusiasts of Volkswagen and Audi automobiles. Founded in 1955, the Club has followed the evolution of Volkswagen from the early air-cooled Beetle to the latest models to roll off the assembly line. We are not owned by, affiliated with or sponsored by Volkswagen AG or Volkswagen of America, the Importer. The Club is operated and managed solely by volunteer members who contribute their time and energy in pursuit of our motto, "to help Volkswagen and Audi owners enjoy their cars to the fullest."
