Volkswagen in Russia: leave or stay


On March 3rd, the German brand Volkswagen, due to the current geopolitical situation, suspended the production of its cars in Kaluga and Nizhny Novgorod. Also, deliveries (both passenger cars and light commercial vehicles) to our country were suspended. Against the backdrop of this event, reports began to appear that Volkswagen could leave the Russian market. However, the company itself does not comment this information.

Meanwhile, the experts of the agency "AUTOSTAT" decided to recall the most striking figures from the history of the development of the brand in Russia. Note that the plant in Kaluga has been assembling German brand cars for 15 years and in Nizhny Novgorod - for 9 years. As of January 1, 2022, there were more than 2 million cars of this brand in the park of the Russian Federation. Among them, 1810.4 thousand are passenger cars; 216.1 thousand - light commercial vehicles. According to the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT", for the last 15 years alone, the market volume of new Volkswagen cars in Russia was about 1.5 million units.

Their peaks were in 2012 and 2013, when 172.5 thousand and 170.3 thousand units were purchased, respectively. At the same time, in 2020, the brand had the maximum market share (6.8%). The most popular model of the brand in our country for quite a long time remains the Volkswagen Polo, which is consistently included in the TOP-10 of the most popular cars in the Russian market. As for the dealer network of the German brand in Russia, in January this year it consisted of 134 dealers. Leave or stay. It will be decided by the Volkswagen management.

We will hope that they choose stay. And also we believe that common sense, and on both sides, will win. Therefore, we will not say yet: AufWiedersehen (Goodbye - translated from German).
