From January to October, the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand delivered more than 4.72 million units to customers, standing for an 11.2% increase from 4.24 million units during the same period last year. For the month of October, the brand reported a 16.3% increase in deliveries to 501,300 units from 430,900 units in October 2011.

Christian Klingler, Board Member for Sales and Marketing for the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, said that for the month of October, it achieved significant growth outside Europe. But the condition in Europe continues to be tough, particularly the Western Europe markets.

On the overall European market, Volkswagen Passenger Cars stayed at the high level of 1.44 million vehicles from January to October, with a 0.5% increase. In particular, the brand posted a 28.8% increase in deliveries to 223,100 units in Central and Eastern Europe from 173,100 units.

Deliveries in Russia (the largest single market in the region) rose by 50.8% to 137,200 from 91,000 units for the same period last year. Meanwhile, in Western Europe (with the exception of Germany), the deliveries declined by 6.0% to 719,100 from 764,700 units due to the hard condition in the markets.In the latest ten-month period in Germany, Volkswagen Passenger Cars delivered 501,300 units to customers, a 0.6% increase from 498,400 units.

For the Asia-Pacific region, the brand’s deliveries rose by 17.4% from January to October. Of this figure, more than 1.89 million vehicles were sent to customers compared to 1.61 million units the previous year. About 1.71 million units were delivered in China (including Hong Kong), the biggest single market in the region, an 18.4% increase from 1.45 million units.

Volkswagen Passenger Cars increased its deliveries in North America by 25.6% to 508,500 units from 404,900 units previously. The improvement in the U.S. was particularly high with a 35.6% growth to 357,400 units from 263,500 vehicles. Deliveries in South America increased by 8.9% to 699,600 units from 642,300 vehicles previously.
