The year 2019 was a successful one for Autostadt in Wolfsburg: Once again, well over 2 million people visited (2.113.000) communication platform of the Volkswagen Group (2018: 2.279.000).
Just under 150.000 VW vehicles delivered to Autostadt
The number of vehicle handovers in 2019 was 148.017 at the previous year's level (2018: 149.658). The 3 millionth delivery (Volkswagen T-Cross) was celebrated at the Customer Center in November 2019.
Roland Clement, CEO of Autostadt: "In 2019, Autostadt achieved its goals: more than 2 million enthusiastic people visited our theme park and far more guests than in previous years chose to visit Autostadt by purchasing an annual pass. Once again, we delivered one in four Volkswagens in Germany. Since the opening of 'Hafen 1' in June 2019, our new conference business has been growing very well and Volkswagen, Wolfsburg and Autostadt are benefiting from it. The past year clearly shows that we are on the right track with a more varied program and numerous attractions."
A total of 3 million new cars already handed over
Last year, Autostadt once again confirmed its leading position as the world's largest delivery center: 148.017 new cars were handed over at the Customer Center in 2019 (2018: 149.658). The Autostadt was thus able to maintain its high overall market share of 26.0 percent (2018: 26.1 percent) of all Volkswagen passenger cars handed over to customers in Germany.
A special moment was the handover of the 3 millionth new car (Volkswagen T-Cross in the color Reef Blue Metallic) to the Peitz family from Berlin. An important milestone was also the transfer of the 250.000th electrified vehicle, an e-Golf.
