My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
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 APRIL - VW - The German brand has turned a corner with growth in the 4th month of the year.
April sales totaled 27,557 units, an increase of 1.6 percent over April 2016
Total Golf sales, including Golf SportWagen and Alltrack, totaled 7,187 units delivered, an increase of 40.7 percent over April 2016
Chattanooga-built Passat sales totaled 6,148 units, an increase of 9.2 percent overApril2016
Volkswagen of America, Inc. (VWoA) today reported sales of 27,557 units delivered in April 2017, a 1.6 percent increase over April 2016. With 96,426 units delivered year-to-date in April, the company is reporting an increase of 7.7 percent in year-over-year sales.
The german mass market brand has now turned a corner with sales slightly ahead of last year, but only just, the highlights of the increase at the Golf, Beetle, Beetle convertible and Passat, surprisingly the Golf GTi, Golf R and e-Golf all dropped sales, possibly with people awaiting the new MK VII Golf, unfortunately the Tiguan and Touareg both dipped sales, but the new Atlas and XL version of the Tiguan should help stem the crossovers decline.
