VW Group USA sales history 40 historyVolkswagen Group picks itself off the floor, on track for best US sales this year

Volkswagen’s widely anticipated arduous struggle in the US to get back onto its feet after the worst crisis in its history, and its subsequent phoenix like rise from the ashes will likely end up as a classic business school case study.  The view that Volkswagen’s North American vehicle operation, thanks to dieselgate, has plunged it into what ranks as its worst and potentially life-threatening crisis is without debate

Peter Schmidt AID Newsletter Journal Report WarwickSmart - Few signs of life as we know it

"Daimler’s well-oiled publicity machine, at least for the time being, is kept busy with the supply of yet another win, win, win story of the re-crowned Mercedes car brand. However, judged purely from the Stuttgart carmaker’s latest monthly data set, its Smart car brand still appears stuck in neutral at best"

European plug-in sales by manufacturer 2017Mitsubishi has highest plug-in sales share in Europe

Mitsubishi, thanks in large measure to the striking popularity of its Outlander PHEV – today’s top selling PHEV in Western Europe - has the highest plug-in share in Western Europe. Some 17.2 per cent of the new cars sold by Mitsubishi in Western Europe during the ten months to October this year were fitted with an electric plug. That’s 15,800 sold plug-in cars, made up almost entirely of the company’s still popular Outlander PHEV, according to exclusive AID sales estimates

October diesel car sales Western Europe data and trendsEurope’s diesel car sales slump runs into October

Hard evidence, if any were needed, that West Europe’s badly rocked diesel car market is heading into only one direction – downwards – comes with latest October car sales data. But a true measure of the collapse in regional diesel car demand and a sign that for diesels things are getting progressively worse, October’s diesel car sales share took a headlong 7.3 percentage point plunge to 42.1 per cent from 49.4 per cent during the same month last year

4WD sales trend Western Europe history to 2017Europe’s hottest 4WD car sales year on record

Sales of 4WD passenger cars in Western Europe - made up of SUV-Crossovers and conventionally bodied cars like Quattro-drive Audi saloons and estates - are virtually guaranteed to reach yet another new record in 2017. AID forecaster believe that this year just over 2 million new 4WD fitted cars will be sold in Western Europe, thus setting yet another new all-time regional sales record

Germany’s crisis-rocked Volkswagen Group, condemned to pay tens of billions of euros in both rectification and penalties for its part in the market-changing dieselgate scandal, has overtaken Renault to become West Europe’s best-selling electric car (BEV) brand. A first tell-tale sign of what the future holds in store, this is the first time that this much-chastened German company has captured this closely watched position


  | West Europe’s 9-months BEV sales already exceed full year 2016 total
