The German brand has informed dealers in Germany that conventionally powered cars will rise in price by 4.4 percent, citing inflation as the reason.

In a letter to dealers, Volkswagen announced that "significant price increases in the field of raw materials, energy sources and equipment" are actually the reason for this price increase. This price increase applies exclusively to models with an internal combustion engine, such as the Golf, Tiguan, Passat wagon, Polo and T-Roc.

All gasoline and diesel Volkswagens will have new prices from February 23. "Even Volkswagen cannot avoid high inflation." "While we are doing our best with long-term contracts, tactical investments and efficiency gains, the impact on price cannot be fully compensated," Volkswagen said in a letter.

Dealers, already worried about poor sales, criticized this decision by the Wolfsburg-based company. "I am shocked. Our sales are falling, and they are raising prices," said a Volkswagen salesperson who wished to remain anonymous.

Many dealers feel that prices should actually be lowered, due to the uncertainty of buyers in this economic environment. However, Volkswagen is not the only one raising prices, as the average price of a new car in Germany increased by as much as 5,000 euros last year.
