VW Group introducing modular platform strategy in China to standardize manufacturing technologies and facilities

 As part of VW Group's global product strategy, VW Group China is promoting its modular platform strategy that makes large-scale production easier and reduces cost. (Please refer to MarkLines' report No.1192 issued in August 2013 for details on VW's modular platform strategy.)

 VW Group plans to build about 40 major models based on a platform "Modularen Querbaukasten/Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB)" by 2017. The MQB is designed for vehicles with transverse engines and can be adopted by a wide variety of segments including the Polo/Golf/Beetle/Scirocco/CC and Audi A3. With the MQB, these different models can share 70% of the parts and VW is able to cut its development cost by 20%. VW also expects to cut the assembly time by 30%.

 Details on the models for the Chinese market have yet to be provided, Shanghai VW revealed in October 2013 that five SKODA brand models were built on the new MQB platform, namely, the Octavia, Superb, Yeti, Rapid, and a 7-seater D-segment supports utility vehicle.



To increase dealerships to 3,000 in 2015

 VW Group is mapping out a new sales expansion strategy in order to raise its market share in China.

The new strategy aims to increase sales in the western regions around Xinjiang and Sichuan Province, where the Chinese government still provides benefits to investors, and the inland region around Hunan Province as well.

 Under this strategy, new plants and production lines started one after another, including FAW-VW plants in Foshan, Guangdong Province and Chengdu, Sichuan Province as well as Shanghai VW plants in Xinjiang and Ningbo. For the latest trends of VW's increasing production capacities in China, please refer to MarkLines' report No. 1215 released in October 2013, "VW's trends in China (Part 1): Production."

 As of September 2013, Shanghai VW had over 1,300 dealers for both sales and services. Breakdown: approx. 980 VW brand dealers, about 50 of which are located in the northwestern region; approx. 320 SKODA brand dealers.

To increase sales of imported VW/SKODA cars

 In order to increase sales of highly profitable VW/ SKODA brands' import models, VW is building import car booths at existing Shanghai VW dealers at a rapid pace. As of September 2013, there were reportedly a total of 123 VW brand's import car outlets including the dealers that also sell Shanghai VW-made cars.
 In China, sales of VW import models grew 64.8% in the five years from 2008 to 2012. The growth rate of import models as a whole was approx. 35%. In 2013, however, import car sales are slowing down and expected to slightly increase by 4 to 5%. (Source: Reported by the Beijing News, a leading Chinese newspaper, as a remark made in September 2013 by VW China's vice president in charge of marketing.)
To increase sales of imported VW/SKODA cars through Shanghai VW dealerships
 Shanghai VW reached an agreement in September 2013 with Volkswagen Group Import China Co., Ltd. (VGIC), which controls sales of VW brand's import cars in China, on their strategic collaboration in import car sales.
 In September 2013, they set up import car booths at some of Shanghai VW's 4S dealerships and started selling imported Touareg sports utility vehicle (SUV) and T5 Multivan together with locally made VW brand's cars. (The manufacturer's suggested retail price of the Touareg is between CNY 685,600 and 1,104,600 and that of the T5 Multivan is between CNY 438,000 and 568,000. Shanghai VW plans to increase its lineup of import models.

 In China, sales of imported VW brand models grew 56% y/y in 2012. In 2013, however, the growth level is lower, partly affected by the declining trend in the Chinese import car market.

Note: As of September 2013, VW made clear that it did not plan to manufacture its luxury Touareg SUV in China.
