Volkswagen Group fills the warehouses of its dealers in Britain’s future “Brexit”.
The potential disorderly exit from the EU “no deals” and concerns about future trade relations forced the company to take measures to mitigate the effects of future tariffs.
“We optimized the inventory levels upward, in order to temporarily delay the impact of potential import tariffs, but there are limits to what can be done,” said Reiter jürgen Stackmann, head of sales and marketing main brand, VW.
The automaker said that in case of increase of import tariffs on new cars so will be offset by a sharp jump in prices for cars. However long it won’t be and sooner or later, Volkswagen will be forced to revise the price lists for their models in the UK upwards.
