Brands and Business Fields


Volkswagen – a global player serving the needs of individual customers in local markets

GROUP STRUCTURE

The Volkswagen Group consists of two divisions: the Automotive Division and the Financial Services Division. The Automotive Division is responsible for the development of vehicles and engines, the production and sale of passenger cars, commercial vehicles, trucks and buses, and the genuine parts business. The Financial Services Division’s portfolio of services includes dealer and customer financing, leasing, banking and insurance activities, and fleet management.

On the following pages, we present the key volume and financial data relating to the individual brands and to Volkswagen Financial Services, reflecting the Group structure in 2009. Production figures and deliveries to customers are presented by product line, while unit sales figures refer to models sold by each brand company, including vehicles of other Group brands. This means that, given the positive growth of our business in China, there are sometimes marked differences between delivery figures and unit sales.

In addition, we explain the unit sales and sales revenue on our markets: Europe/Remaining markets, North America, South America and Asia-Pacific. Under our changed regional presentation, the South African market is no longer allocated to the South America region, but is now part of the Europe/ Remaining markets region. Prior-year figures have been adjusted accordingly.

KEY FIGURES BY MARKET

In a difficult market environment, the Volkswagen Group increased sales by 0.6% year-on-year to a total of 6.3 million vehicles in the reporting period. At €105.2 billion, sales revenue was down 7.6% on the previous year.

In the Europe/Remaining markets region, sales remained below the previous year’s level. As a result, sales revenue fell by 9.2% year-on-year to €75.2 billion.

In North America, the Group sold 0.5 million vehicles in 2009, undershooting the previous year’s level by 15.4%. The downturn in the market as a whole, however, was much more severe. At €11.4 billion, sales revenue was down 10.4% year-on-year.

At 0.8 million units, total Group sales in the South American markets were on a level with the previous year. Brazil recorded growth, due also to the state support program there. At €9.6 billion, sales revenue was down 1.8% on the previous year.

In the Asia-Pacific region, including the joint ventures in China, a total of 1.6 million Group vehicles were sold during fiscal year 2009, 37.4% more than in the year before. Sales revenue increased by 6.3% to €9.0 billion. This figure does not include the sales revenue of our Chinese joint ventures, as these are accounted for using the equity method.
