Volkswagen Group Sells Over Six Million Cars in Nine Months
During the nine months between January and September, VW Group deliveries increased 13.9 percent across the world to 6.11 million cars. The automotive conglomerate also says that the month of September was also favorable for them, with 751,900 deliveries in Europe alone, adding up to a sales increase of 13.3 percent for the month.
“We are very pleased with the development of the Group. Delivering six million vehicles in nine months represents a key milestone on the way to reaching our annual target of eight million vehicles sold in 2011,” Group Board member for Sales Christian Klingler stated. “We are also expecting very good delivery figures for the fourth quarter. We continue to keep a close eye on developments in global automobile markets, some of which are highly volatile.”
In North America, sales improved 21 percent for the duration of the first nine months of the year, while the Asia Pacific region grew at a more moderate 17.3 percent. Yes, that does also mean that China was still the largest single market with 1.69 million cars delivered in the first nine months of the year.
