VW Group deliveries dip for 6th straight month
Automotive News China | 2019/2/19

Volkswagen Group¡¯s China sales declined for the sixth consecutive month in January, with volume falling 2.9 percent to 387,300.

The German auto giant blamed China¡¯s weakening light-vehicle market for the prolonged slide.

Although Audi¡¯s deliveries rose 5.1 percent last month to 64,000, VW brand¡¯s sales slid 3.1 percent to 287,900 and Skoda¡¯s tumbled 12 percent to 27,800.

VW Group didn¡¯t disclose sales of its other brands for January in China.

Despite the dip, VW Group believes it kept outperforming China¡¯s overall light-vehicle market last month. 

¡°Even though the Group was not entirely immune to the generally declining market trend, it nevertheless managed to increase its overall market share still further,¡± the company said in a statement. 

In 2018, VW Group¡¯s deliveries edged up 0.5 percent year on year to 4.21 million vehicles in China as the overall new light-vehicle market contracted 4.1 percent to 23.7 million.
