Sales to the dealer organization
The Volkswagen Group’s sales to the dealer organization increased by 0.5% to 10,956,499 units (including the Chinese joint ventures) in the reporting year. This was primarily due to higher demand in its home market of Germany as well as continually rising demand in Brazil and an upward trend in the United States. Overall, the unit sales volumes fell by 0.6% outside Germany and unit sales rose by 9.0% in Germany. At 12.3 (11.3)%, the proportion of the Group’s total sales accounted for by Germany was higher than in 2018.
The Tiguan, Polo, Golf, Jetta and Passat were our biggest sellers last year. The largest increases in sales were recorded by the T-Roc, Tharu, Tiguan and T-Cross models from the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, the Audi Q8, Q2 and the new e-tron, as well as the ŠKODA Karoq/Yeti and Kodiaq and the SEAT Arona and the new Tarraco. Both the Porsche Cayenne and the Crafter from the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand also achieved a strong growth rate.
