We do not focus on sales press releases, but with today’s chatter about auto sales taking a plunge, its good to see Volkswagen in the green. We’ve been seeing a ton of the Volkswagen Eos driving around town! With the Jetta TDI demo’s at the dealers now and the Tiguan on sale, it will be interesting to see the next few months.
On the other hand, Chrysler did have one of the biggest hits yet the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan posted excellent increases of 21% and 52%, respectively. Where will this put the Volkswagen Routan when it hits dealers in the Fall of 2008?
Best Overall Sales Month Since August 2006
Volkswagen of America, Inc. today announced June 2008 sales of 23,208 units, a 0.3 percent increase over the June 2007 sales of 23,137 vehicles. On a year-to-date basis, 2008 Volkswagen sales remain 0.6 percent ahead of 2007 sales through June.
June reflects Volkswagen’s best sales month since August 2006. The Passat wagon had its best sales month since January 2007 with sales up 25.9 percent over June 2007. Volkswagen’s innovative coupe-convertible-sunroof Eos continues to be a summertime top-seller with sales of 1,632 unites, up 14 percent over last June.
