Article by Christian Andrei, on December 20, 2011

During the period from January to November of 2011, the Volkswagen Group’s global deliveries increased further. It was able to deliver more than 7.51 million units to customers. In comparison, it sold 6.59 million vehicles during the same period last year, standing for a 13.9% increase. This figure excludes MAN and Scania.

This meant that the Group still performed better than the world market by 5.3%. It also did remarkably in November, with total deliveries of 711,400. This is 15.3% higher than the 617,200 units recorded in November 2010. Christian Klingler, the Group Board Member for Sales, said that the company is “making very good progress.”

He added that its target is to exceed eight million units in annual sales. Klingler explained that European markets have become riskier and that 2012 is expected to be “very challenging.”

But then, the delivery levels for this year are expected to be “very high.” Through November, the Group delivered more than 3.38 million vehicles in Europe. This is 11% higher than the 3.04 million units posted for the same period last year. Meanwhile, the Group had deliveries of 1.82 million vehicles in Western Europe (excluding Germany), compared to the 1.71 million units last year – a 6.6% increase.

The Volkswagen Group posted a significant increase in Germany (its domestic market), with an 11.7% increase, from 0.95 million units delivered last year to the 1.06 million units delivered this year. The Group brands also boasted high growth in Central and Eastern Europe, where deliveries totaled 494,800 units – 29.3% higher than the 382,800 vehicles sent last year.

January to November 2011 deliveries in North America grew by 21.4% to 600,700 units (398,800 in the U.S.) compared to 494,700 units (325,600 in the U.S.). Hence, U.S. deliveries grew by 22.5%. During the same period, the buyers in the South America region received 855,500, around 6.6% higher than the 802,600 units delivered last year.
