Volkswagen has laid down the gauntlet for its U.S. sales, proclaiming a goal to sell 800,000 vehicles by 2018. At its third annual fleet preview event a few weeks ago in Las Vegas, Volkswagen laid down its plans to get there.
If 2012 is any indication, the company is on track. Volkswagen Group (including Audi, Bentley, Bugatti and Lamborghini) sold more than 580,000 units in the U.S. last year. That was good for a 3% market share, its best in 29 years stateside.
