As battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) shift to become the newest automotive trend for consumers, Volkswagen has documented a major jump in deliveries in the year’s first quarter.

Volkswagen’s deliveries of BEVs jumped 65 percent year-over-year in Q1, according to a press release shared on Thursday by the automaker.

By the end of March, Volkswagen delivered a total of 99,100 BEVs, up from just 60,000 in the same quarter of 2021.

The news comes amidst continued semiconductor and wire harness bottlenecks that have hit the auto industry across brands.

The top Volkswagen BEV models delivered were the Volkswagen ID.4 with 30,300 units delivered, the ID.3 with 13,000 units delivered, the Audi Q4 e-tron with 10,700 units delivered, the regular Audi e-tron with 10,300 units delivered and the Porsche Taycan with 9,500 units delivered.

Volkswagen’s largest surge took place in China, where 28,800 BEVs were delivered to customers, representing a four-fold increase from last year.

By region, Europe remained Volkswagen’s largest market with 58,400 vehicles delivered in Q1 for a market share of 59 percent.

Volkswagen also launched online car sales starting with the ID.4 and ID.5 for customers in Germany this week, with more models set to be added down the road.

Earlier this month, Volkswagen also detailed plans to develop a self-driving special purpose vehicle taxi based on the ID Buzz.
