Although 2020 was a gloomy year for the transport market, with a total reduction in sales of 42.4% due to increased vehicle taxes, Volkswagen can look back to a record year in many ways. According to new data BIL Sweden, a total of 31,008 new transport vehicles were registered in Sweden. Of these, 10,126 were Volkswagen vans. Caddy and Transporter are the best-selling vans in 2020.
Every third van sold in 2020 was a Volkswagen
These numbers make Volkswagen a market leader with a market share of 32.7%. The huge market share is also unique in the world - no other country in the world has the same strong preference for Volkswagen's minivans.
With a market share of 46.9% in its segment, the VW Caddy became the most popular minivan of 2020 with 5,092 registrations. The VW Transporter also came in first place in its segment with a market share of 29.8% and 2,731 registrations.
In 2020 Volkswagen launched a complete series of electric transport vehicles with the VW ABT e-Caddy and VW ABT e-Transporter vans, as a complement to the already launched VW e-Crafter.
In 2021, Volkswagen is looking ahead with great confidence. The new VW Caddy Cargo, which will be launched in January, will have the lowest consumption in its class and thus also the lowest vehicle tax.
