Volkswagen Canada Reaches New Milestone

Annual Sales Record Established

AJAX, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2010) -

Editor's Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

With the delivery of its 43,377th vehicle this year, Volkswagen Canada has established a new annual sales record, bettering the previous mark set in 2001.

The record-setting car was a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta, bought from Cambridge Volkswagen by excited new owner Nolan Jorgenson, of Cambridge, Ontario.

Volkswagen Canada is proud of this accomplishment, and is looking forward to even bigger and better things in 2011 as it prepares to launch several new vehicles into the Canadian marketplace. The first of these will be revealed in just a few weeks' time at the North American International Autoshow, in Detroit. Volkswagen will take the wraps off of its new midsize sedan, which will soon begin production at the company's state-of-the-art facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Next up will be the introduction of the sportiest version of the all-new Jetta, the GLI, and not long thereafter the completely redesigned replacement for the New Beetle will break cover.

With all of these introductions, Volkswagen Canada is confident that this year's sales record will be short-lived.
