In 2018, the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand handed over a total of 499,700 vehicles from the T, Caddy, Crafter and Amarok model ranges to customers worldwide (+0.4 per cent).

In 2018, we once again exceeded the already very strong previous year. We can be proud of this – and we are building on it”, emphasizes Heinz-Jürgen Löw, Member of the Board of Management responsible for Sales and Marketing at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. “Our products are achieving sustainable growth both in our European  domestic market and in some non- European markets. That is clearly the merit of our efficient and reliable vehicles as well as the strong performance of our dealers.” Overall, the brand has achieved solid growth in most regions worldwide in 2018 – despite challenging  economic  conditions  in major traditional markets such as the UK and Turkey and the conversion  of passenger car models to WLTP*. “We are starting the new year optimistically and are confident that we will be able to increase the excellent result again in 2019”, Löw continues.
