VW Group H1 sales slide; June deliveries rebound

-

Volkswagen Group’s China sales fell 21 percent from a year earlier to some 1.47 million in the first six months as it halted output at plants in Changchun and Shanghai amid pandemic-triggered lockdowns from March to May. 

Deliveries at the flagship VW brand slipped 19 percent to roughly 1.08 million in the first half, according to data from the German auto giant.

Of those sales, more than 75,900 were full electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids, an increase of 107 percent from a year earlier. The surge was driven by ID.-series EV models, which generated volume of 59,400. 

In the first six months, Audi deliveries slipped 24 percent to 319,558 while Porsche sales dropped 16 percent to 40,681. 

Skoda volume plunged 44 percent to 24,700.

VW Group didn’t break down brand sales on a quarterly basis.

Recovery


Along with a rebound in the overall Chinese light-vehicle market, which came after Changchun and Shanghai lifted city-wide lockdowns and the central government halved the purchase tax on internal combustion cars, VW Group said local sales rose 27 percent year on year to around 340,800 in June.
