VW Tiguan sales top five million mark

January 27, 2019

Volkswagen is celebrating an impressive production anniversary right at the start of 2019 with the five-millionth Tiguan rolling off the assembly line at the Wolfsburg plant in the middle of January.

The compact Tiguan has enjoyed worldwide success since its market launch in 2007, and has made a valuable contribution to the brand’s growth strategy and SUV offensive.

The harmonious design concept of the Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace (since 2017) has been enthusiastically received by customers all over the world. The Tiguan stands for striking exterior and interior design, state-of-the art technologies and outstanding all-round characteristics.

Just under 800,000 Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace vehicles were delivered in 2018 which is proof of the popularity and success of the compact SUV.

Dr. Andreas Tostmann, Member of the Board of Management responsible for Production, said: “The Tiguan has passed the historic mark of five million vehicles produced. The know-how of our team, the exceptional team spirit and the enthusiasm with which we produce our Volkswagen models form the basis for this magnificent success and provide a strong foundation for our SUV strategy.”

Production of the Tiguan started in 2007 in the main plant in Wolfsburg and represented the beginning of the success story of this compact SUV. More than 120,000 units already left the assembly line in the first full year of production in 2008. This was followed by steep continuous growth – in 2015, more than 500,000 Tiguan had already been sold worldwide.

The second Tiguan generation was introduced in 2016. This was the first Volkswagen SUV to be based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB).

This was followed in 2017 by the especially spacious Tiguan Allspace, almost 22 centimetres longer and also available as a seven-seater model.

The Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace are currently produced in four Volkswagen locations (China, Germany, Mexico and Russia) and offered in the most important markets worldwide.
