Volkswagen Group increases sales of electric vehicles by 26% by 2022

Volkswagen Group records 26% increase in electric sales by 2022

The Volkswagen Group has reported its results for the 2022 period, with an upward trend in electric vehicle sales. Specifically, VW Group delivered a total of 572,100 all-electric vehicles, up 26% from 452,800 units in 2021.

The Group continues to lead the BEV market in its home market of Europe and reached fourth position in this segment in the United States, although the largest increase came from China, where BEV deliveries were up 68% year-on-year. In Europe, the Group has a strong demand for 1.8 million vehicles, of which 310,000 are BEVs.

Overall deliveries were down 7% year-on-year to 8.3 million vehicles, partly due to the ongoing supply crisis. The share of BEVs in total deliveries reached 6.9%, compared to 5.1% in the previous year. In Europe, total deliveries decreased by 10.4% to 3,153,200 vehicles, while BEVs increased by 13.4% to 352,000 units. Most of the 2,711,300 vehicles were shipped to Western Europe. Extended Executive Committee Member for Sales, Hildegard Wortmann, said:

“Our brands have shown a decent performance with regard to deliveries in a very challenging environment last year. I am particularly pleased that our electric transformation gained further momentum across all brands and that we achieved our target share of around 7-8% for all-electric vehicles despite these headwinds.

The high-level bench is clear evidence that customers love our strong portfolio across the board. That gives us confidence for 2023 despite the weakening macroeconomy and continued supply shortages. The latter are expected to improve step by step over the course of the year.”

In the course of 2022, additional sites in Emden, Hannover and Chattanooga began producing electric vehicles. This year, so will the Group headquarters in Wolfsburg. Onthis basis, the Group aims to reach a BEV delivery level of around 11% by 2023. As well as, let’s remember, continuing to work towards its goal of being carbon neutral by 2050.

The Volkswagen Group’s best-selling all-electric vehicles in 2022 were: the Volkswagen ID.4 and ID.5 with 192,200 units, the Volkswagen ID.3 with 76,600 units, the Skoda Enyaq iV and Enyaq iV Coupé with 53,700 units, the Audi Q4 e-tron and Q4 e-tron Sportback with 52,800 units, the Audi e-tron and e-tron Sportback with 51,200 units, the Volkswagen ID.6 with 37,400 units, the Porsche Taycan and Taycan Cross/Sport Turismo with 34,800 units and the Cupra Born with 31,400 units.
