All-Time Record for Volkswagen Canada: Best Single Month of Sales in Company History

AJAX, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 3, 2013) - May was very special for Volkswagen Canada as the company reported its best sales result of all-time. A total of 6,315 new cars and sport utility vehicles were delivered to customers last month, 5% above last year's total of 6,030. Year-to-date sales are also at record-setting levels, with 25,731 vehicles being delivered, bettering last year by 10% (23,362).

"Quality, fuel efficiency and great value have always been hallmarks of our brand," stated Maria Stenström, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group Canada. "What sets us apart is the ability to deliver these attributes without sacrificing the unique, fun-to-drive character built into each Volkswagen."

A perennial favourite, the Jetta remains one of the best-selling cars in Canada. Last month, 2,858 Jettas were delivered. Now available with a choice of five different engines, including TDI Clean Diesel and Turbocharged Hybrid, the Jetta is priced from just $14,990. Year-to-date, Jetta sales are up 27% over the same period last year.

Volkswagen Canada has now posted 17 consecutive record months, and has done so with the strongest lineup in the company's history.
