Purpose

I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA SALES OCTOBER - Of all the cars sold by Vokswagen, the Beetle was the only model to increase sales.

  • October sales totaled 24,779 units
  • Golf SportWagen sales (which includes all-new Alltrack) increase 60.3% over October 2015
Volkswagen of America, Inc. (VWoA) today reported sales of 24,779 units delivered in October 2016. Sales of the Golf SportWagen, which include the all-new Alltrack, increased by 60.3% over October 2015. On October 27, Volkswagen of America revealed the Atlas SUV which will hit showrooms in the spring of 2017.

The Beetle is the only model to increase sales in the month, which has continued to be hit with bad press and fall out from the diesel gate scandal, although VW has now mostly settled the cases surrounding their dishonesty, getting the people back and buying their products is going to be a harder proposition.
