Herndon, VA — (May 1, 2018) Volkswagen of America, Inc. (VWoA) today reported sales of 28,794 units delivered in April 2018, an increase of 4.5 percent over April 2017. With 112,746 units delivered year-to-date in 2018, the company is reporting an 8.6 percent increase in year-over-year sales.

“We are encouraged with the brand’s continued growth in the market, driven by the success of our two new SUVs,” said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Volkswagen of America. “We are also excited to have the all-new 2019 Jetta going on sale later this month, adding to the positive momentum.”

April 2018 proved to be another growth month for Volkswagen, driven by sales of the Atlas and 2018 Tiguan with 5,404 and 7,637 units delivered respectively. Overall sales reflected the impact of Volkswagen’s move to offer a more family-friendly lineup, with SUVs accounting for nearly 50 percent of total volume for the Volkswagen brand in year-over-year sales.

The all-new 2019 Jetta is expected to arrive at U.S. Volkswagen dealers later this month. The Jetta is one of the world’s most successful sedans, with more than 17 million models sold worldwide, including more than 3.2 million of those vehicles in the U.S. The 2019 Jetta offers a bolder design, more interior space and new technology.  

For the 2018 model year, most new Volkswagen vehicles in the U.S. will come with the People First Warranty, a six-year or 72,000-mile (whichever occurs first) bumper-to-bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which can be transferred to subsequent owners throughout its duration.
