Volkswagen car sales in the United Kingdom (UK) 2016-2019 German vehicle manufacturer Volkswagen sold 15,183 cars in the United Kingdom in July 2019. Generally, sales figures were highest in March and September of each year, with September 2018 being a notable exception. The Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency issues new registration plates in September and March, which usually corresponds with an increased sales volume. The company’s UK market share in July 2019 amounted to 9.66 percent.

In 2015, Volkswagen was caught deliberately cheating in emissions tests, by fitting their diesel cars with software designed to lower emissions levels in testing conditions, in order to meet respective air quality standards. Although they were not the only car maker exposed for such practices, as the first name connected with the scandal, Volkswagen became synonymous with “Dieselgate”. As of April 5, 2019, the European Commission has come to the preliminary conclusion that German carmakers Volkswagen, BMW and the Daimler AG had breached EU antitrust rules by colluding to mitigate competition on emissions technology.
