Volkswagen Group announces a 25% increase in BEV deliveries in the first nine months of 2022
The Volkswagen Group has reported its results for the first nine months of 2022, showing an increase in electric vehicle deliveries of 25%. By the end of September, 366,400 units of 100% electric vehicles had been delivered, up from 293,000 in the prior-year period. Extended Executive Committee member Hildegard Wortmann said:
“Customers love the all-electric model range of our brands, which is the broadest in the industry. Due to strong demand and continuing supply constraints, our order bank remains at a high level. However, we achieved a BEV share of 6.8% in the third quarter, the highest so far this year.”
Leading theway as the most demanding is Europe, which continues to rise with 211,900 vehicles (58% of the Group’s total) in the period. It is followed by China with 112,700 deliveries (31% of the Group’s total), more than double that at the end of the third quarter of 2021. The United States accounted for 8% of the Group’s global EV deliveries, with 28,900 units.
With regard to deliveries by brand recorded up to the end of September, the Volkswagen brand delivered 207,200 vehicles (57% of the Group total), followed by Audi with 77,000 vehicles (21% of the Group total), then Škoda with 36,900 vehicles (10% of the Group total), then Porsche with 25,100 vehicles (7% of the Group total) and finally Seat/Cupra with 17,600 vehicles (5% of the Group total).
