Article by Christian Andrei, on September 17, 2012

Even when the economy has been difficult, the Volkswagen Group made 5.91 million global deliveries for the period from January to August 2012, standing for a 10.2% increase. For the same period last year, the Group handed over 5.36 million units to customers. The Group also set a record for the month of August with deliveries of 719,500 units, about 18.9% higher than the 605,300 units delivered in August 2011.

Last Friday, Group Board Member for Sales Christian Klingler said that while the company is satisfied with its performance, it is still monitoring the worldwide situation, specifically in Western Europe. In the Asia-Pacific region, the Group had very satisfactory figures.

In the first eight months of 2012, 1.98 million units were delivered, a 17.9% increase over the same period the past year. Of this figure, 1.74 million were delivered in China, which is currently the biggest single market of the region. In North America, deliveries rose by 24.5% to 535,200 units (from 429,800 units delivered during the same month the previous year).

Of this figure, 380,000 units were delivered in the U.S. For the same period, the Volkswagen Group delivered 678,600 units in the South America region, a 9.5% increase compared to the 619,600 units deliveries at the same period last year.

Meanwhile, in the overall European market, Group brands reported deliveries of 2.47 million vehicles, a 1.7% increase. In Western Europe (which exclude Germany), the Group delivered 1.25 million units, about 5.8% lower than the 1.33 million vehicles handed over to customers during the same period last year.
