Record Start for Volkswagen Canada

Record Start for Volkswagen Canada 
Beetle Convertible Now Available 
AJAX, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- Sales results have
picked up where they left off last year for Volkswagen Canada.
January's total of 3,373 new cars and light trucks established a
best-ever result for the month and were 8.5% higher than during the
same period last year (3,109).  
"2012 was a year in which we built up a great deal of momentum,"
stated John White, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group Canada.
"With our strong lineup of vehicles, we are confident that this will
continue throughout 2013."  
Known worldwide as a market leader in fuel-saving TDI Clean Diesel
technology, Volkswagen has recently added an optional turbocharged
hybrid version to the best-selling Jetta lineup.  
This week, Volkswagen's 136 Canadian Dealers will also welcome the
latest member of the Beetle family, the sun-loving convertible. This
iconic design is a sure-fire way to kick the winter blues and will
allow Canadians to take advantage of the first days of spring with an
automated power top that can retract the roof in less than ten
seconds.
