VW Group sales fall in Feb. behind weak Skoda, VW brand results
Automotive News China | 2019/3/19

Volkswagen Group¡¯s China deliveries declined for the seventh straight month in February, dropping 7.4 percent from a year earlier to 234,400. 

The company¡¯s results were dragged down by the Skoda and VW mass-market brands. 

Skoda deliveries slumped 18 percent to 16,000 last month while VW brand sales fell 8.8 percent to 172,500, according to VW Group. 

But Audi sales gained 1.8 percent to 40,084. 

In the first two months, VW¡¯s group-wide deliveries decreased 4.6 percent from a year earlier to 621,700.

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

Despite the extended decline in sales, the German auto giant continued to gain share of the new-light vehicle market in China. 

In February, China¡¯s new light-vehicle sales contracted for the eighth consecutive month, falling 17 percent to below 1.22 million cars and light trucks, amid slower economic growth.

From January to February, new light-vehicle sales in the country shrank 18 percent from a year earlier to about 3.24 million.
