Herndon, VA — (February 2, 2016) Volkswagen of America, Inc. (VWoA) today reported sales of 20,079 units delivered in January 2016.  The Tiguan produced the best January results on record for the vehicle with 2,528 vehicles delivered, a 71.6 percent increase. 

“We are encouraged by the strong performance of the Tiguan,” said Mark McNabb, chief operating officer, Volkswagen of America. “January sales numbers were down due to the seasonal nature of the fleet business. Despite that and the weather conditions in the Northeast portion of the country, Volkswagen dealers improved in terms of retail business.”

This month also marked the best January ever for the Golf R with 477 vehicles delivered. The e-Golf also had its best January ever with 328 vehicles delivered, an 81.2 percent increase versus last year. At the recent CES 2016, Volkswagen presented the e-Golf Touch which featured a gesture control system and showed technologies that are close to production.
