Sales Milestone for Volkswagen Canada

Sales Milestone for Volkswagen Canada 
More New Models On The Way 
AJAX, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/13 -- Volkswagen Canada has
rung in the New Year with an all-time record. December sales of 3,777
new cars and light trucks represent the best ever result for the
month and were 6% higher than during the same period last year
(3,565). Year-to-date, the total of 59,132 firmly established 2012 as
the single best sales year for the company and outpaced the previous
record (52,604) by over 12%. These figures were double the growth of
the industry as a whole. Volkswagen has been in Canada since 1952. 
"This is quite a significant milestone," stated John White, President
and CEO of Volkswagen Group Canada. "Our sincere thanks go out to the
entire Canadian Dealer network, and to every customer from
coast-to-coast that allowed us to reach this new plateau."  
Volkswagen remains the market leader in fuel-saving TDI Clean Diesel
technology. These engines are now available in the Passat, Jetta,
Beetle, Golf, Golf Wagon, and Touareg models. The Jetta also features
an optional turbocharged hybrid powertrain, combining the
fun-to-drive character of all Volkswagens with the energy
conservation of a hybrid. 
Looking forward, the company will introduce a host of new models in
2013 that continue to embody the same virtues of safety, fuel
efficiency, reliability and fun. These attributes, combined with
aggressive pricing, have made Volkswagen an unparalleled Canadian
value story for the last sixty years.
