Volkswagen is hoping not only to become the biggest automotive company in the world, but also to rake in the big bucks with the heal of standardized parts and flexible platforms. They have recently announced production increases, and we’re about to see much more of that in coming months. However, the first month of the year isn’t that encouraging for the VW brand, as 419,200 units were delivered, almost exactly the same as last year.
With Europe in trouble, good news came from North America, where 39,600 VW cars were sold, 30.2 percent more than in January 2011. The only other piece of big news is that demand in russia more than doubled to 9,300 cars (+118.4%).

“The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand made a stable start to the new year. Despite volatile developments, particularly in Europe, we maintained deliveries at last year’s high level thanks to our young and innovative product range,” commented Christian Klingler, Board Member for Sales and Marketing for the VW Group and the VW Passenger Cars brand.
