While Naamsa no longer releases individual model sales to the public, we’ve laid our hands on Volkswagen South Africa’s figures for November 2020.
For the record, VW Group South Africa registered 6 449 passenger-vehicle sales over the month, including the Audi brand. In total (that is, adding light- and medium-commercial vehicles), VW Group SA hit 6 950 units in November.
So, which passenger-vehicle models performed best for the Wolfsburg-based brand in November? Well, as you probably expected, the Polo Vivo was again SA’s best-selling passenger car for the month, ending on 2 234 units. The likewise locally produced Polo hatchback was next on 1 815 units.
Then came the T-Cross (905), ahead of the Tiguan (428) and Polo sedan (302). The outgoing Golf 7 dropped to 84 units, with the new T-Roc next on 45 units after launching late in the month. The Touareg added 30 units and the Caddy MPV some 27 units, while the outgoing Kombi and Caravelle brought up the rear, with one registration apiece (refreshed versions are due to launch in January 2021).
In the light-commercial space, the Caddy led the charge for VW with 224 units, followed by the Amarok (181), which ranked eighth on the list of SA's best-selling bakkies. The Transporter range added four units, while the Crafter managed 92 units in the medium-commercial segment.
Audi’s top-seller for November, meanwhile, was the Q2 on 156 units, with the A3 Sportback (87), Q5 (64), Q3 (63), A1 Sportback (62) and A3 Sedan (55) also making it past the 50-unit mark for the Ingolstadt-based firm.
The Q3 Sportback ended the month on 32 registrations, just ahead of the refreshed A4 sedan (31). The Q7 (9), Q8 (9), TT (6), A6 (2) and A7 (1) didn’t make it out of single figures.
