VW regain sales throne in Europe

After trailing the Ford brand by 1,298 units last month, VW has once again become the best-selling automotive brand in the European Union with a total sales of 138,304 units as compared to Ford, which moved 87,721 units. The Golf VI accounts for the majority of VWs increased sales. The Blue Oval company actually dropped to 4th place, being overtaken by both Renault and Peugeot, with sales of 99,642 and 88,721 respectively.

Scrappage schemes that hiked sales for subcompacts like the Fiesta and Ka have either ended or were down in key markets, resulting in the drop in Ford sales. The Golf has regained its throne as Europe's best-seller, with 186,202 units sold during the first four months of the year while the Ford Fiesta came in second at 173,096. Should the Golfs sales stay at this level for the rest of the year, it would have been the most popular car in Europe for year 2000, 2001, 2004, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
