When it came time to count it eggs, Volkswagen Group found that 2011 was an incredibly successful year for them as deliveries increased 14.3 percent compared to the previous year, easily topping the magic 8 million model mark. They were also able to end the year on a high note with 650,000 sales, 19.1 percent more than in December 2010.
“All Group brands reported further gains under difficult conditions on volatile markets. This outstanding result is clearly a team achievement,” the Group Board Member for Sales, Christian Klingler, said. “However, a very challenging year lies ahead. The risks on European markets in particular will multiply in 2012. In spite of this, the Volkswagen Group is well placed and well prepared to master the upcoming challenges and play a leading role on world markets.”

The excellent result come off the back of positive developments in growth regions and established markets. In China, the largest single market, the Company delivered 2.25 million vehicles. Deliveries in India more than doubled, with the Group handing over 111,600 vehicles to customers there.
