Volkswagen reports third consecutive month of sales growth

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 25, 2010

For the past three months, Volkswagen AG's sales growth had been steadily increasing however, the company still doubts that this indicates lasting recovery for the world's automotive markets.

Volkswagen group sales and marketing head Detlef Wittig said in a statement that it believes the recession may have bottomed out but that it sees no signs yet of a sustained recovery.

Volkswagen will continue to view further developments with caution. Because of strong results in Germany and China due to their scrapping incentive programs, VW boosted July unit sales 6.7% to 556,900 vehicles.

Deliveries in Germany increased by 26.9% to 113,700 units. Volkswagen got 250,000 new customers due to the scrapping premium.

For trading in an old car for a new model, buyers get 2,500 euros (about $3,520) in Germany. In China, the VW group (which includes Audi, Skoda, Lamborghini and the VW brand) delivered a company record 127,900 vehicles, up 68.4% on the same month in 2008.

The VW group was disappointed in Spain, central Europe and Russia, where its July passenger-car sales slumped 35% to 3,252 units. VW group had a sales volume of 3.65 million units, a decline of 3.5%. Overall market dropped about 16%.
