Wolfsburg, 08 May 2012 – Deliveries by the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand in the first four months of the year increased by 9.4 percent to 1.81 (January – April 2011: 1.66) million vehicles. The brand handed over 456,200 (April 2011: 429,200; +6.3 percent) vehicles to customers in the month of April. “The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand made a very good start to the second quarter. However, given the situation on West European markets we remain very vigilant”, Christian Klingler, Board Member for Sales and Marketing for the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, commented.

In Western Europe (excluding Germany), on the other hand, there was a 5.1 percent decline to 303,400 (319,800) vehicles due to the difficult situation on the overall market. In contrast, Volkswagen Passenger Cars grew deliveries by 4.7 percent in the home market of Germany, handing over 202,400 (193,300) vehicles to customers.

In the Asia-Pacific region, the brand reported a 13.4 percent increase in deliveries for the period to April, handing over 725,100 (639,200) vehicles to customers, of which 653,300 (578,200; +13.0 percent) units were delivered in China (including Hong Kong), the region’s largest single market.
