Data provided by VW Group has just a rounded total and percentages for each region. I have then used that to obtain a sales figure. Below are charts for VW car and LCV divisions.
|Asia / Pacific||2,836,000||48.7%||-5%||2,974,000||49.4%||9%||2,728,720||46.0%|
VW is most popular in the Asia region, notably China. Nearly half of all sales are found in the Asia / Pacific region. As expected Europe is a major contributor to sales with about a third of the total. North America - which seems to include Mexico - about 10%. The problem area of late is South America, with double digit decreases in numbers and as a consequence, a diminishing share of the total.
Summary: Sales were down for 2015 after years of increase, mainly due to South America but also Asia. 2016 promises no real growth but perhaps consolidation.
|Asia / Pacific||21,550||4.3%||-5%||22,797||4.2%||12%||20,424||3.7%|
With light commercial vehicles, another year of reduced sales. South America is 4th for cars but 2nd in LCVs and this has been a major factor in the downturn.
Summary: This is an area that isn't that critical for the company but those losses in South America must be a source of disappointment. Europe accounts for 7 out of 10 sales.
