Volkswagen Sales Way Up In November

Volkswagen just rounded out its best November ever in North America, boasting a 24.2% sales increase over previous years. The new, Americanized Jetta has helped, but sales are up across the board. Here are some interesting numbers: Volkswagen sold 4,304 TDi-equipped vehicles in November, and the Chrysler Town&Country rehash known as the Routan saw sales rise by a whooping 98.5%. This statistic only translates to 1,072 units, but it's a wonder they're able to move the flabby, overpriced Routan at all.

The Jetta, historically VW's strongest seller in our market, sold nearly nine thousand units. Though it is a lower quality car when compared with its predecessor, the New Jetta is larger, more butch than the MkV Jetta, and is a stellar deal at five dollars short of 16 grand. Jetta sales were up 40% compared with last year. Toureg sales have literally doubled, VW moving 837 examples of their near-luxury SUV. This has been the best month for the Toureg since 2007. Heck, they even sold 61 Passat Wagons, though I doubt any found a home in the Southeast.

All in all it was a pretty impressive month for the German company. “It’s no surprise the all-new Jetta and Touareg models did well for November but it’s also good to see increases from models such as the Routan, Tiguan and Golf,” said Mark Barnes, Chief Operating Officer, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “Our TDi clean diesel products continue to gain popularity as customers realize the benefit of this product.” The grand total is 20,189 vehicles sold in November, a very good month for Wolfsburg, indeed . . .
