Volkswagen’s transformation to e-mobility continues apace with the news that deliveries of all-electric vehicles grew by 23.6 percent in 2022. Despite the strained supply situation, Volkswagen delivered around 330,000 Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) throughout the year.

“We achieved a solid sales result in 2022 despite persistent supply bottlenecks,” said Imelda Labbé, Board Member for Sales, Marketing and After Sales. “The pronounced growth in BEV models confirms that with our attractive product portfolio, we are on the right track to becoming the most desirable brand for sustainable mobility.”

With around 170,000 units delivered to customers in 2022, the ID.4 is the Volkswagen Group’s top electric car globally. For the third year running, it was the bestselling car across all drive types in Sweden, with deliveries of around 8,900 units.
In China, the company’s largest sales market, Volkswagen more than doubled deliveries of the all-electric models from the ID. family: 143,100 ID.3, ID.4 and ID.6 were handed over to customers there in 2022. There was also a major boost in sales in North America too: in total, the company delivered 22,700 ID.4 in the region, an increase of 27.7 percent. Since the first ID.3 was handed over to a customer in September 2020, Volkswagen has delivered more than 580,000 models from the ID. family worldwide.

However, the backlog remains very high; in Europe, around 640,000 customers have placed orders for Volkswagen models across all drive types. Volkswagen expects 2023 to be another volatile and challenging year due to persistent semiconductor supply bottlenecks. “We are doing our utmost to reduce delivery times for our customers still further and to lower the high order backlog as quickly as possible,” said Labbé. The company anticipates a gradual improvement in the supply situation, with production stabilizing as the year progresses.

None of this is stopping Volkswagen step up the pace of its electric campaign with ten new models by 2026, giving the brand a product in every segment. From the entry-level e-car with a target price of under €25,000 to the new flagship ID.7, which was showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week.
