German carmaker Volkswagen (VW) sold 15.1 percent fewer passenger vehicles in the 2020 crisis than a year earlier, a report released on Tuesday shows.
In a difficult market environment, VW has customers all over world in 2020 delivered 5,328,000 vehicles of the same brand, almost a million less than in 2019.
The biggest drop in demand was recorded in the home Western European market, where its sales fell by 23.4 percent. In China, where the pandemic is largely contained, the decline in sales was much milder and amounted to 9.9 percent.
VW’s deliveries of all-electric vehicles (BEVs) almost tripled in 2020, while deliveries of all categories of electric cars, including plug-in hybrids, more than doubled. The electric model ID.3 alone has been delivered in 56,500 units since its launch in September.
The crisis caused by the coronavirus has led to a drop in sales in the entire automotive industry due to reduced demand in conditions of increased economic uncertainty.
