Now that the first half of the year 2017 has been closed, the different brands of cars are presenting the results that have been obtained in this time period. Some, like the Renault-Nissan Alliance have already jumped into the fray with more data than good, and others, such as the Volkswagen Group do it with discrete data, but very remarkable for the storm you are experiencing.
first manufacturer of cars in Europe has stated that during the first six months that have passed of the year has delivered 5.2 million cars. This information implies a sales growth of 0.8 percent as compared with the same period last year. To achieve this data, the markets with the best behavior have had have been in Central and Eastern Europe. Within this group of countries, has been Russia has taken the baton of their enrollment (+14.8 per cent growth).
According to Fred Kappler, responsible for Sales of the Volkswagen Group
“the month of June was very good for the Group, since all of the firms that comprise it improve its results compared with the previous year” […] “in June alone, the Group’s sales have grown by 4.2 percent, reaching 920 thousand units” […] “the stable growth in the major regions give us reason to address the second half of the year with confidence”
Reviewing the main shopping areas of the German conglomerate, we have the following results. In Europe the increase in sales has been 3.5 per cent. In north America the deliveries have grown by a modest 3.9 per cent. In the area south of the american continent, the first six months of the year have given the Volkswagen Group a sales growth of 11.4 percent. To finish, in the area of Asia-Pacific is where the Volkswagen Group has suffered a slight decline, because their deliveries have fallen 2.7 per cent compared with the same period of the year 2016.
These data are plagued by the bad behavior experienced by the sales the German consortium for the first quarter of the year. However, to give air to the manufacturer who is riding in the best possible way the adverse effects of Dieselgate. Will have to see how it ends the year and if it is able to reclaim the title of manufacturer most sold in the world. Since then the Renault-Nissan Alliance, and Toyota Motor is not going to put anything easy.
