21 July 2021, 04:07:17

Volkswagen Group more than doubles deliveries of all-electric vehicles in H1 of 2021Volkswagen's latest report says that the group has more than doubled its BEV deliveries in the first half of the year to 170,939 units - a 165.2% increase YoY. In the course of the year, the BEV ramp-up will further accelerate thanks to the expanded model range. PHEV deliveries more than tripled to 171,300 units - а 204.2% increase YoY.

As regards BEV deliveries by regions, the Group's home market of Europe was clearly in the lead in the first half year, with 128,078 vehicles (share: 74.9 percent). Here, the Group was the market leader, with a share of about 26 percent in BEV deliveries. In the USA, the Group handed over 18,514 BEV models to customers, corresponding to 10.8 percent of its worldwide BEV deliveries. Thus, the Group achieved a higher market share there with BEV, at about 9 percent, than in the overall market including conventionally powered vehicles. In China, 18,285 battery-electric vehicles were handed over to customers in the first half of 2021, accounting for 10.7 percent of the Group’s worldwide BEV deliveries.

The BEV model offensive of the core Volkswagen brand started in Europe last year with the ID.3. This model was followed this year by the ID.4 electric SUV, which was also launched in the USA and China in March. In addition, the ID.6, an electric SUV with up to 7 seats tailored specifically to meet the needs of Chinese customers, has been available in China since June. Christian Dahlheim said: "In the third quarter, we expect a significant boost to BEV deliveries in China thanks to the expanded Volkswagen ID. model range."

Slightly more than half of the BEV deliveries throughout the world up to the end of June bore the logo of the core Volkswagen brand, which handed over 92,859 vehicles to customers (share: 54.3 percent). The premium brands Audi and Porsche followed with 32,775 vehicles (share: 19.2 percent) and 19,822 vehicles (share: 11.6 percent) respectively. ŠKODA delivered 17,697 BEV (share: 10.4 percent) and SEAT 6,172 (share: 3.6 percent).

The top five BEV models in the first half were:
