In fiscal year 2020, the Volkswagen Group’s global production declined by 17.8% to a total of 8,900,154 vehicles due to the measures taken to contain the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The impact of national measures to contain the pandemic led to a disruption of supply chains and consequently to production stoppages within the Volkswagen Group. The production figures for the locations in China have seen a year-on-year recovery since the second quarter of 2020; in total, our Chinese joint ventures manufactured 9.5% fewer units than in the year before. By contrast, the delayed impact of the Covid-19 pandemic at the other locations worldwide caused declines in production in the first three quarters of 2020. In Germany, production contracted by 22.7% to a total of 1,633,239 vehicles. The percentage of the Group’s total production accounted for by Germany fell to 18.4 (19.5)%.
