Through 2022 Q2, VW’s American deliveries were 143,279. That’s 32.2% lower than last year’s same period (211,373). Atlas was VW’s top selling nameplate (40,412), Tiguan came in second (38,728), Taos third (27,955) and Jetta fourth (23,791). Its ID.4 BEV’s sales slumped 29.1% (4,415).
VW’s sales report didn’t explain the lower numbers. VW dealer reps say VW cannot build enough vehicles with consumer-desired features such as power liftgates. As such, VW’s production woes are similar to those other carmakers face.
