Volkswagen Truck & Bus led for another year the Brazilian market preference in new trucks in 2023. Vice-leader in buses, in buses, the automaker sold 4,490 Volksbus chassis. According to data released by the Associação Nacional dos Fabricantes de Veículos Automotores (National Association of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers - Anfavea), 27,018 VW trucks were licensed, which corresponds to about 25% of the total volume. The biggest highlight was the Delivery 11.180, the best-selling truck in the market outside heavy-duty models: 4,518 units between their Euro V and VI versions.

"If we consider our competitive market, this is our twentieth truck market leadership in Brazil, a historic achievement for Volkswagen Truck & Bus, which has been in existence for 42 years. On buses, we also have a lot to celebrate: our chassis family completed three decades in 2023 and the Volksbus kept runner-up position since its launch. In addition, we continue with our internationalization strategy to strengthen exports and our global position", says Roberto Cortes, president and CEO of the company.

In addition to the Delivery 11.180 in its Euro V and Euro VI versions, another VW truck that ranked among the best sellers in the country was the Constellation 24.280. VWCO also led sales in the medium and semi-heavy segments, and stood out in light commercials with 1,898 units of Delivery Express.

Volkswagen Truck & Bus continues to expand its negotiations with e-Delivery to promote the transition of the market to electrification. Still sold to niches and, for the most part, in smaller volumes, the model is prepared for the most different applications and can already be found from the north to the south of the country, with more than ten different operations.

"We will continue to be motivated to expand our offer with our diesel or electric models and we will have news for the market. By 2025, we will complete our current R$2 billion investment cycle to launch new technologies focused on more sustainable mobility, such as electric propulsion or improving energy efficiency with CO2 reduction. We will also continue to advance in digitization and connectivity for increasingly modern and efficient transport solutions”, reinforces Cortes.
