The Volkswagen Group delivered 7.40 (January-September 2013: 7.03; +5.3 percent)* million vehicles from January to September. In the month of September the company handed over 881,300 (September 2013: 856,000; +3.0 percent)* models to customers. “The Volkswagen Group grew deliveries further to well over seven million units in the first three quarters of the year. That is a very pleasing development, particularly given the differences in the way world markets have been performing,” Group Board Member for Sales Christian Klingler said in Wolfsburg on Friday, and added: “Even though markets remain challenging, we nevertheless have the chance to reach the ten million deliveries mark this year – four years earlier than originally planned.”
