Sales to the dealer organization

In the reporting period, the Volkswagen Group’s sales to the dealer organization worldwide – including the Chinese joint ventures – amounted to 10,391,113 vehicles, up 3.8% on the prior-year figure. The increase of 4.6% in unit sales outside Germany is primarily attributable to stronger demand in Western Europe and Central Europe, as well as in China. In Germany, the number of vehicles sold decreased by 1.7%. At 12.1%, the proportion of the Group’s sales accounted for by Germany was lower than in 2015 (12.8%).

The Polo, Golf, Jetta and Passat were our biggest sellers last year. The Touran, Lamando, Lavida, Jetta and Tiguan models, the Audi A4 family, the Audi Q3, Q7, the ŠKODA Fabia, Rapid and Superb as well as the SEAT Alhambra and Ateca saw the fastest growth in demand. The Porsche Cayman, Boxster, 911 and Macan models were also very well received by the market.
