January 24, 2020 / 2 Comments / 1901 / ATL News, Volkswagen

There may be those who question whether the Volkswagen Golf GTI was the first hot hatchback. What can’t be questioned is since that iconic original, it has defined and refined the formula of injecting fun-to-drive characteristics into a practical everyday automotive package.

Since then, many rivals have been on either side of that spectrum, performance that compromises liveability or not enough to overcome the dullness of the daily grind.

September 20, 2019 / 0 Comments / 2029 / ATL News, Volkswagen

WHEN the Volkswagen (VW) Amarok came out in 2010, the pickup market was experiencing a paradigm shift. No longer was the pickup a crude tool for commercial operation. The modern pickup had to be just as competent on the job site as it was off it, handling family duties and more personal endeavours with the expected refinement of a sedan or a sport utility vehicle.

The 2019 Volkswagen Amarok Canyon injects even more into the formula that won the vehicle the International Pickup Award for 2018 and the 2019 WhatCar? Pickup Award.

The Tiguan Is Expanding To A New Class

July 31, 2019 / 0 Comments / 1462 / ATL News, Volkswagen

The previous Tiguan was built on the Volkswagen B6 Passat chassis, which gave it car-like agility with the dimensions of a SUV. Now in its second generation, the Tiguan is looking bulkier as it rests on a bigger frame. Gone are the circular sheet metals, replaced by a more angular one, to give it an aggressive appearance, as well as a new design theme.

The character line, which runs through the side panels and is incorporated into the door handles, gives a distinctive visual appeal. Surprisingly, while bigger in dimension, it does weigh less than the previous generation. To complete the look, VW added beefier low-profile 19” tyres, with the ability to grip any road.

• Sharp year-on-year rise in sales revenue to EUR 108.8 billion (EUR 98.8 billion);
positive impact from exchange rates and mix effects
• Operating profit before special items rises to EUR 7.0 billion (EUR 6.2 billion)
• Equity-accounted profit of the Chinese joint ventures level year-on-year
• Net liquidity in Automotive Division increases to EUR 21.5 billion
• CEO Dr. Winterkorn: “Volkswagen very well positioned in an increasingly
difficult market environment”

The Volkswagen Group reported considerable growth in sales revenue and earnings in the first six months of the year in a very challenging environment. Sales revenue rose by 10.1 percent to EUR 108.8 billion (EUR 98.8 billion) in the first half of the year, primarily due to exchange rate effects and an improved product mix. Operating profit before special items grew by 13.0 percent to EUR 7.0 billion (EUR 6.2 billion). Restructuring measures in the trucks business led to an operating profit after special items of EUR 6.8 billion (EUR 6.2 billion). The operating return on sales remained stable at 6.3 percent (6.3 percent). The Group’s operating profit and sales revenue exclude the activities of the Chinese joint ventures, which are accounted for in the financial result using the equity method. At EUR 2.7 billion (EUR 2.6 billion), the share of operating profit attributable to the Chinese joint ventures was level year-on-year in the first half of 2015.

“Our results for the first half of the year show that Volkswagen remains very well positioned in an increasingly difficult market environment and has a compelling product range”, said Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, in Wolfsburg on Wednesday. “We are keeping a very close watch on global macroeconomic trends, especially where there are uncertainties such as in the Chinese, Brazilian and Russian markets.”

The Volkswagen Group’s profit before tax remained almost level at EUR 7.7 billion (EUR 7.8 billion) despite the negative effects from fair value measurement in the financial result. Profit after tax remained unchanged as against the prior-year period, at EUR 5.7 billion (EUR 5.7 billion).

“The difficult market environment and fierce competition, as well as interest rate and exchange rate volatility and fluctuations in raw materials prices all pose challenges. We are systematically implementing our efficiency program and are continuing to roll out the modular toolkits. We expect considerable positive effects in both instances”, said CFO Hans Dieter Pötsch.
