Article by Christian Andrei, on October 15, 2011

Volkswagen Group improved automobile sales greatly in September and attained record nine-month figures, which placed it on track to reaching sales of eight million vehicles for 2011. The group's retail sales for its entire brands, including Audi, Skoda and Seat, improved 13.3 percent in September to 751,900 units.

Christian Klingler, the group head of sales, stated that delivering six million units in nine months represents "a key milestone" on the way to achieving their annual target of eight million vehicles this year. He further stated that they are expecting "very good delivery figures for the fourth quarter.”

The group's nine-month retail sales improved to 6.11 million, an increase of 13.9 percent. The VW brands Skoda and Audi are leading the way, assisted by deliveries in growing markets such as China and central and eastern Europe, and by a major improvement in U.S. sales.

Sales in China were up 14.6 percent to 1.69 million in the first nine months. U.S. sales improved to 322,000 units or 20.4 percent. In Europe, sales increased to 2.7 million or 10.8 percent.

Growth was sluggish in western Europe, where sales went up by 6.3 percent to 1.52 million, excluding Germany. In central and eastern Europe, deliveries leaped 28.3 percent in the first nine months to 390,000 units.

Moreover, the nine-month sales in Germany, which is VW's largest single European market, increased by 12.3 percent to 864,400 units. However, with a downturn in Europe's biggest economy, VW might be placed for more challenging periods in the future. One out of three vehicles sold in Germany comes from a VW brand.
