2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: More Sales Fever
June 02, 2011
If it seems like youve been seeing more VWs on the road lately, thats because you have.
Volkswagen of America reports that it sold 30,100 vehicles in the U.S. during May, a 27.9 percent increase over May 2010. Jetta sales totaled 16,671, a 58.6 percent increase over last year, while TDI variants of all VW models represented 22 percent of the months sales.
It appears that Volkswagen wont rest until it has covered the whole country with the VW badge. It makes you wonder if it can come close to the glory days of the 1960s, when a half million VW Beetles were sold here. What kind of magic can the VW badge still have?
