Volkswagen Group has released its second-quarter results, showcasing positive financial performance. Here’s a summary of the key details:

After-Tax Profit

The company recorded an after-tax profit of 3.79 billion euros ($4.20 billion), slightly lower than the expected earnings of EUR3.91 billion. However, this profit is consistent with last year’s second-quarter figure.

Revenue Growth

Volkswagen’s revenue for the period amounted to EUR80.06 billion, showing a significant increase from EUR69.50 billion in the previous year. Despite a minor difference compared to analysts’ expectations of EUR80.25 billion, this revenue growth is a positive sign for the company.

Key Highlights

Vehicle Deliveries Adjustment

Volkswagen has adjusted its yearly vehicle delivery target to a range of 9 million to 9.5 million units, down from the original target of 9.5 million. This modification reflects the company’s strategic decisions and market conditions.

Supply-Chain Challenges

Although disruptions in the supply chain have improved compared to the extremes experienced during the pandemic, Volkswagen continues to face challenges in transportation and logistics delays. The pressure has shifted from semiconductor shortages to these new issues.

Focus on Chinese Market

While Volkswagen reported a slight decrease of 1.2% in vehicle deliveries in China during the first half of the year, it highlighted significant growth in other regions. From January to June, the company delivered 4.4 million vehicles, representing a 13% increase year-on-year. Volkswagen plans to enhance its electric-vehicle market share in China through strategic partnerships with local firms. Recently, the company announced a substantial EUR700 million investment in the Chinese EV startup XPeng.

Overall, Volkswagen Group’s second-quarter results indicate promising performance amidst ongoing challenges and a focus on capturing the opportunities in the electric-vehicle market.
