In the reporting period the Volkswagen Group produced 8,282,954 vehicles (including the Chinese joint ventures), 6.9% less than in the same period of the previous year. The prior year had been marked by the impact of national measures to contain the pandemic, which had led to the disruption of supply chains with production subsequently being halted in the Volkswagen Group. In fiscal year 2021 as well, supply shortages, especially for semiconductors, resulted in production cutbacks so that the total annual production volumes dropped even further. Navistar has been included in the Group figures since July 1, 2021. In Germany, production contracted by 9.2% to a total of 1,483,281 vehicles. The percentage of the Group’s total production accounted for by Germany fell to 17.9 (18.4)%.
