      The list of automakers skipping the 2019 Detroit Auto Show continues to grow. Automotive News reports that Audi is the latest automaker to skip next year's show. The company wrote in a statement that it "has had a long and successful history at NAIAS, debuting countless models that Audi customers enjoy today. For 2019, we have decided that we will not participate in NAIAS. We will continue to evaluate Auto Shows on a case by case basis relative to the timing of our product introductions and the value the show brings from a media and consumer perspective."
      Just within the past few months, both BMW and Mercedes-Benz have announced they would be no-shows for the 2019 Detroit Auto Show for similar reasons. Other reasons cited by automakers include reallocating money for marketing, not wanting to compete for attention with other automakers, and more competition from other shows such as the Consumer Electronics Show.
      The Detroit Auto Dealers Association, the group who puts on the show is trying their best to lure automakers to the show once again. A spokesman told Automotive News that plans are underway to change up the show and provide automakers "a global stage that delivers cost-effective opportunities to audiences" that "only Detroit" can offer. There is also talk of moving the show to October.

      VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA REPORTS APRIL 2018 SALES RESULTS
      Sales totaled 28,794 units, an increase of 4.5 percent compared to April 2017. Year-to-date sales totaled 112,746 units, an increase of 8.6 percent over 2017 and highest volume YTD since 2014. Sales of the all-new 2018 Tiguan totaled 7,637 units. Sales of the Chattanooga-built Atlas totaled 5,404 units. Herndon, VA — (May 1, 2018) Volkswagen of America, Inc. (VWoA) today reported sales of 28,794 units delivered in April 2018, an increase of 4.5 percent over April 2017. With 112,746 units delivered year-to-date in 2018, the company is reporting an 8.6 percent increase in year-over-year sales.
      “We are encouraged with the brand’s continued growth in the market, driven by the success of our two new SUVs,” said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Volkswagen of America. “We are also excited to have the all-new 2019 Jetta going on sale later this month, adding to the positive momentum.”
      April 2018 proved to be another growth month for Volkswagen, driven by sales of the Atlas and 2018 Tiguan with 5,404 and 7,637 units delivered respectively. Overall sales reflected the impact of Volkswagen’s move to offer a more family-friendly lineup, with SUVs accounting for nearly 50 percent of total volume for the Volkswagen brand in year-over-year sales.
      The all-new 2019 Jetta is expected to arrive at U.S. Volkswagen dealers later this month. The Jetta is one of the world’s most successful sedans, with more than 17 million models sold worldwide, including more than 3.2 million of those vehicles in the U.S. The 2019 Jetta offers a bolder design, more interior space and new technology.  
      For the 2018 model year, most new Volkswagen vehicles in the U.S. will come with the People First Warranty, a six-year or 72,000-mile (whichever occurs first) bumper-to-bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which can be transferred to subsequent owners throughout its duration.
