Despite the troubles which seem to haunt the business, Volkswagen is experiencing heightened growth in China.

VW vehicle deliveries in the first nine months of this year hit 2.90 million across the mainland and Hong Kong, and this September’s growth was 6.3% higher than that of September 2016. This number also outstrips the 5.2% market growth.

“Ongoing good growth reassures us we are continuing to meet our goals of satisfying and exciting customers as we continue to introduce new products and services that take us into the new era of sustainable mobility,” said Professor Jochem Heizmann, Member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft as well as President and CEO of Volkswagen Group China.


“As we head into the final quarter of the year, our transformation continues. We are working with our partners to carry on the roll-out of our e-mobility and SUV offensives. We are entering partnerships in the expanding new mobility services sector. We have launched a new charging app in conjunction with major charging operators, and we are making strong progress towards our battery electric vehicle initiative with JAC.

“And we are not stopping there. In the new digitalised and connected world, we are determined to keep Volkswagen Group China at the forefront of the people-centred mobility revolution.”

SUV models such as the Tiguan L and Teramont have been especially helpful in the growth of the VW brand, allowing it to achieve its best ever Chinese sales numbers.
