New record: Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand delivers almost two million vehicles in period to April

  • January to April: 4.6 percent increase to 1.99 million units
  • 513,400 vehicles delivered in April / +6.8 percent

The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand delivered almost two million vehicles for the first time in the first four months of a year. 1.99 (January-April 2013: 1.91) million vehicles were handed over to customers in the period to April, representing an increase of 4.6 percent. The brand delivered 513,400 (April 2013: 480,900; +6.8 percent) units in April. “Volkswagen Passenger Cars grew deliveries yet again in April. On the one hand that is due to good sales developments in China and Europe, and on the other it is attributable to sustained high demand for products such as the Golf, now in the seventh generation of its 40-year history, where the success story continues”, Christian Klingler, Board Member for Sales and Marketing for the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, said. “However, the global market is still a mixed bag and therefore remains challenging”, Klingler added.

Volkswagen Passenger Cars delivered 567,800 (545,300; +4.1 percent) vehicles on the overall European market in the first four months, of which 298,400 (279,300; +6.8 percent) were handed over in Western Europe (excluding Germany).
