Volkswagen : Great results, strong leader
in Market News
Published on September 25, 2018
As the European market share of cars increased by 2.7% on the first half of 2018, Volkswagen followed this trend and saw its share reaching 11.4% (+0.7pts compared to H1 2017) making the company the leader of the market this year again in Europe.
The German brand may have known great issues in its "Dielselgate", these figures are not giving hope to its competitors. Indeed these results represent its highest H1 over the last 20 years.
All of this may be the consequences of the new born T-Roc which have known a great success since its arrival on the market and the small SUV already reached the 5th place of the Volkswagen best-selling products while the next T-Cross is expected. Golf has also increased its sales by 8%. Germany, Austria and Slovenia represent the highest market shares the company owns with 19.7% for its mother country.
