Volkswagen brand increases April sales by 7%

The Volkswagen AG core namesake brand has managed to post a positive result last month, increasing worldwide deliveries by 7% as Europe and China’s growth balanced out the decreases from the US market.

According to a Volkswagen statement, the VW brand managed to reach 513,400 units in April, also managing to come just shy of the 2 million mark for the four months period in 2014, a total rise of 5% over the same period last year.

“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,” said VW sales chief Christian Klingler.

At the moment, VW’s forecast is still cautious, with Klinger adding that many markets remain challenged and the worldwide sales are still a “mixed bag.” The group maintained its prediction of “moderately” growing 2014 sales to exceed the 2013 tally of 9.7 million vehicles.

VW’s core brand jumped deliveries in Europe by 4% to reach 567,800 units in the four months, while China maintains its very positive growth with sales reaching 921,400 cars, up by a good 18%.

Meanwhile, US deliveries are down for the period by 10% to 118,200 cars, and the South American region is not faring any better, with sales slumping 22% to only 183,900 units.
