Volkswagen Has Terrific October Sales
|   Friday, November 07, 2014
Volkswagen sales continued to rocket along at high speeds in October as the German automaker reported some very healthy gains across its entire line.

The introduction of the all-new Golf line highlighted VW's performance as the line immediately contributed more than 5,000 units to its sales total for the month. "Thanks to the refreshed Jetta and the all-new 2015 Golf and Golf GTI attracting customers and enthusiasts, we are pleased to see increased traffic in our showrooms," said Mark McNabb, chief operating officer, Volkswagen of America.


Another highlight for the Golf line will be the initial sales of the e-Golf, Volkswagen's fully electric Golf model. The e-Golf, already exciting dealers, achieves 126 miles per gallon in the city and 111 mpg on the highway for a combined total of 116 mpg. The e-Golf is the mileage champ among all 2015 car models.

At its October October debut, VW partnered with Global Green USA to auction off the first Golf in the US. The auction raised $41,000 for Global Green. The Golf is scheduled for delivery this week.

Meantime, the refreshed Jetta and the Volkswagen Beetle, introduced last month, also contributed to VW's sale success.

For the month, Volkswagen sales looked like this:

October sales total 30,313 units, representing a 7.8% increase over October 2013
The all-new Golf delivered 2,351 units for the month, marking a 101 percent increase in sales for the model over the previous October
The Golf GTI delivered 1,724 units, a 67.1 percent increase
Jetta sedan delivered 13,372 units for the month, a 24.7 increase
Passat delivered 6,513 units for the month
High-mileage, TDIĀ® Clean Diesel models accounted for 5,513 units, representing 18.2 percent of sales in October
