VW Delivers Record Numbers in September

The Volkswagen brand is looking up, with almost 600,000 vehicles across the globe delivered in September 2017, an increase of about 8 percent compared with the same period last year. For the year-to-date, about 4.5 million vehicles have been sold worldwide, which represents a 3 percent increase. The United States showed a 33 percent increase from September to September. “September was indeed a record-breaking month for the Volkswagen brand. It was the strongest month for deliveries in the history of Volkswagen, not only worldwide, but for the individual markets of China, Canada, Chile, Poland, Sweden and Slovakia as well,” said Jurgen Stackmann, VW board member. “There are also clear signs of an upturn in the home market of Germany; current orders are well above the previous month. The clearly positive dynamic for the brand continues in all regions.” See what all the excitement is about when you visit Chapman VW Tucson.

Jetta Sales Strong in U.S.

Along with strong sales from the new Atlas and redesigned Tiguan, the Jetta accounted for the biggest sales bump in the U.S. Total Jetta sales were up 45 percent from the previous year, despite the fact that the Jetta SportWagen became the Golf SportWagen. VW sold more than 12,000 Jetta sedans in September 2017 in America. The new large SUV Atlas also had a strong showing with almost 4,100 delivered in September across the U.S. in its first year of existence. Tiguan sales were up by more than 1,000 units and the Beetle Convertible had a 32 percent sales increase. The total Golf family also experienced a 24 percent increase for September, buoyed by the 100 percent increase in sales of the SportWagen and a 21 percent rise in GTI sales.

New People First Warranty Will Boost Sales Further

Look for sales to continue to rise into the 2018 model year as VW announces the People First warranty that provides bumper-to-bumper coverage on most VW models for up to 6 years or 72,000 miles. “Volkswagen has always been the people’s car and with the People First Warranty we’re putting our customers first,” according to VW CEO Hinrich J. Woebcken. By bringing the right cars, at the right time and making the offer very competitive, we believe we’re in the position to grow in the U.S. Market. Now’s a great time to pick up a new VW with the Model Year End event at Chapman VW Tucson. Low lease rates and up to $5,500 off the MSRP of select VWs equal the best deals of the year.
