Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles hits new September sales high

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has continued a record-breaking 2013 with its best ever September registrations, and has also increased its market share to a record high, reinforcing its number two position in the light commercial vehicles sector.

A total of 5,276 vehicles were registered in September - up 10% on 2012 - with Transporter and Caddy leading the way with 2,302 and 1,825 registrations respectively.

Amarok deliveries during September increased by 28.5% (469) when compared with the same period in 2012 (365), while Crafter recorded 680 registrations.

In addition, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles also registered 384 camper van and passenger carriers and 52 heavy commercial vehicles.

The record September figures have helped Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles produce its highest ever sales figures for the first nine months of a year.  With total sales of 31,262 (January - September), the brand is 18.9% up on the same period in 2012 (26,294).

Further proof that Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is continuing to outperform the market comes from its market share that has risen to 13.8% - another new record. Volkswagen is now firmly established as the second-biggest brand in the UK light commercial vehicle sector.

Alex Smith, director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: "These figures prove once again that Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is enjoying its most successful year to date.

"As our order books suggest, demand has never been higher, with an increasing number of customers discovering why Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles make such a sound investment. 

"We're delighted that so many customers are choosing Volkswagen and recognising not only the high quality of our products, but also our service support,  strong dedicated network and cast iron residual values."
