Volkswagen AG VWAGY reported a 3% year-on-year increase in first-quarter FY24 deliveries to 2.10 million vehicles.

The BEV order bank currently stands at around 160,000 vehicles, with a 154% increase in orders Y/Y.

Audi car deliveries fell 4.5% to 396,900 vehicles, and Porsche declined 3.9% to 77,600 in the first quarter.

“Our diversified product portfolio gives us the necessary flexibility to compensate for fluctuations in demand in certain segments – as is currently the case with all-electric vehicles – in others,” said Hildegard Wortmann, Member of the Group’s Extended Executive Committee for Sales.
