Volkswagen: electric sales doubled in 2021

In 2021, Volkswagen delivered nearly 4.9 million vehicles worldwide, a figure down by around 8% compared to 2020, due to the current shortage of electronic components. While SUVs are still popular, representing more than 40% of the German manufacturer’s total sales, electrified vehicles are booming.

Indeed, the percentage of 100% electric and hybrid Volkswagen deliveries has almost doubled, reaching 7.5% of deliveries total, whereas it was only 4% in 2020. In Europe, the phenomenon is even greater: nearly one in five Volkswagens delivered (19.3%) is electrified, whereas this share was 12 .6% in 2020.

The Volkswagen ID.4 is a success

Worldwide, the best-selling electric vehicle of the brand is the ID.4: among the 263,000 100% electric Volkswagens sold last year, the ID.4 represents 119,650 units, followed by the ID.3 (around 76,000 units), the e- Up! (about 41,500 units) as well as the ID.6 (nearly 18,000 units in China).

The ID.4 is notably a success in Europe, and leads in sales of 100% electric models in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Ireland, while it is number 2 in electric SUVs in China. On the other side of the planet, the ID.4 has sold 17,000 copies in the United States.

Volkswagen deliveries should continue to be disrupted in the first half of 2022 due to semiconductor supply difficulties, but the Wolfsburg firm hopes to be able to accelerate the pace during the year.
