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.

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.
