In the third quarter alone, the BEV portion rose to 9%, up from 6.8% the previous year. Europe was the primary growth catalyst between January and September, with a 61% increase of 341,100 vehicles. In the USA, BEV deliveries soared by 74% to 50,300 units, while in China, there was a 4% increase, totalling 117,100 units.

By the end of September, the Volkswagen passenger cars brand had delivered 273,000 all-electric vehicles, just over half of the Group’s total BEVs. Audi followed with 123,000 vehicles (23% of the group’s share), SKODA with 54,400 vehicles (10% share), SEAT/CUPRA with 32,300 vehicles (6% share), Porsche with 27,900 vehicles (5% share), and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles with 19,600 vehicles (4% share).

Hildegard Wortmann, a member of the group’s extended executive committee for sales, commented on their performance. She highlighted the impressive 45% global increase in all-electric deliveries during the first nine months. Despite hesitancy towards battery-powered vehicles in the European market, Volkswagen expanded its market share and maintained its leadership in this segment. However, she also noted that their order intake hasn’t met their ambitious goals due to a slower-than-anticipated market trend.
