Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the Group’s e-offensive with a large number of new models met with keen interest from customers worldwide.
The Volkswagen Group handed over 231,600 all-electric vehicles to customers globally in 2020, more than three times the volumes delivered in 2019. Plug-in hybrids were also very popular with customers, who purchased 190,500 units (+175 percent).
In Western Europe, the share of electric vehicles therefore surged to 10.5 percent of overall deliveries (in 2019 market share was 1.9 percent).
“The Covid-19 pandemic made 2020 an extremely challenging year,” said Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales. “The Volkswagen Group performed well in this environment and strengthened its market position. We are particularly pleased that we hit the ground running in our e-offensive in spite of the pandemic and thus took a big step forward in the implementation of our Together 2025+ strategy. We will keep up the momentum this year, adding many more attractive electric models.”
