Volkswagen Group Sales Up In 1st Quarter
The Volkswagen Group delivered 3.34 (January-April 2014: 3.31; +1.0 per cent) million vehicles from January to April this year. The Company handed over 853,200 (April 2014: 864,300; -1.3 per cent) vehicles to customers in the month of April. “The start to the second quarter highlights the mixed market trends in the different regions. While we are experiencing a tailwind in Western Europe and North America and have been able to grow Group deliveries – in some cases quite significantly – in those regions, the situation in South America and in Eastern Europe – where the trend is primarily driven by market developments in Russia – remains challenging,” Group Board Member for Sales Christian Klingler said in Wolfsburg on Friday. “We continue to focus on qualitative growth. With its twelve brands, the Volkswagen Group is excellently positioned to achieve that,” Klingler continued.
