Developments in the home market of Germany, where 133,100 (126,500; +5.3 percent) customers took possession of a new vehicle, were also favorable. In addition, Volkswagen Passenger Cars grew deliveries in the Central and Eastern Europe region in the period to March, handing over 64,100 (61,000; +5.2 percent) vehicles there. The company delivered 34,300 (35,300; -2.7 percent) units in Russia.

The brand recorded a 13.3 percent increase in deliveries in the Asia-Pacific region in the period to March, handing over 740,100 (653,500) vehicles to customers. 682.700 (598.100; +14.1 percent) units were delivered in China (incl. Hong Kong) during the same period. In contrast, deliveries in India fell to 10,500 (16,600; -36.8 percent). Volkswagen Passenger Cars delivered 134,600 (145,700; -7.6 percent) vehicles in the North America region, of which 87,300 (98,200; -11.1 percent) models were handed over to customers in the United States.
