In 2022 Volkswagen sold 30,946 vehicles in Australia.

    Below you will see a visualisation of how those sales compare to a decade ago in 2012.

    In 2012 Volkswagen sold 54,835 vehicles in Australia and since then the German giant has expanded and then contracted.

    Below is a graphical representation of the top manufacturers sales over the last 25 years (1997 to 2022), inclusive of passenger vehicles, SUVs, and both light and heavy commercial vehicles. This graph is interactive and you can pick to compare any number of manufacturers.

    Sales of once super popular models like the Golf have dropped substantially due to production constraints last year, as have sales of the Polo and Passat.

    New models like T-Roc have helped lift that volume somewhat but the German brand is definitely looking for a better result in 2023, if not quite a return its heyday of the mid-2010s.
