This means that 7.1 percent more customers have went for one of the cars made under the Volkswagen umbrella compared to the ninth month of last year, while from January to September, the Group’s sales rose by 2.4 percent, which piled up to 7.6 million vehicles.

All passenger car brands recorded a positive delivery performance for the period to September. While the situation in Brazil in particular remained tense, there was significant growth on the Chinese market. There was also positive development in demand from customers in Europe. The increased deliveries make us optimistic we will be able to master the upcoming challenges. Reinforcing our customers’ trust in our products remains our top priority“, said head of the VW Group Sales, Fred Kappler.
