The Volkswagen Golf has once again proved to be a hit with buyers in Europe and Germany last year. The Mk8 VW Golf retains its crown as the best-selling car not just in Europe - where 312,000 units were delivered, but also in its home ground in Germany - delivering 133,900 units. These numbers are across all Golf variants.
According to Ralf Brandstätter, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars, whilst the Mk8 VW Golf had its launch interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, sales really gathered momentum in the 2nd half of 2020. So much so, that of the 312,000 Golf models delivered in Europe, around 179,000 hit the streets in the second half of the year alone.
