Article by Christian A., on October 10, 2014

The Volkswagen brand just posted a 0.2-percent surge in global sales in September to 534,800 units, no thanks to lower demand in Russia and the Americas. The September sales were just a bit of improvement from the 0.1-percent rise in sales in August.

For the first nine months of 2014, VW brand grew 3 percent to 4.56 million. Christian Klingler, VW Group sales chief, said in a statement that the brand received windfall from recovering sales in western Europe as well as record deliveries in China in September, although these were struck down by the “current uncertainties” in Russia and the market downturn in South America.

The brand saw its deliveries in the United States drop 14 percent to 270,900 units in the first nine months of the year. For the same period, VW brand logged a 19-percent fall in sales in South America to 488,000, posting a 14-percent drop in deliveries in Brazil to 96,600.

Nine-month sales in western Europe jumped 5 percent to 648,300 vehicles, with January-September sales in Germany leaped 5 percent to 430,100 units. The luxury car brand, however, were not so fortunate in other parts of Europe.

Sales in central and eastern Europe dipped 9 percent to 181,400, accompanied by a 20-percent drop in Russia to 93,800 vehicles. VW brand managed to top 2 million sales in China, selling 2.07 million vehicles for a 15-percent jump.
