The world’s largest automobile manufacturer, the Volkswagen Group sold the most cars in 2019, delivering 10.2 million sedans, sport-utility vehicles, and compact cars under its top passenger car brands, and almost 734,000 trucks in its three commercial vehicle brands. Statista data also revealed the German automaker hit a 25.4% market share based on new car registrations in Europe as of October.

Although the company managed to reduce the effects of COVID-19 in the first half of the year, the H1 2020 financial report still revealed severe losses. Between January and June, the Group’s sales revenue plunged by $34.5bn to $114bn, the heaviest fall among the top three automakers.
