VW Group deliveries in January up 6.5%

Thanks to growing sales gains in core European markets, Volkswagen Group’s sales for January went up 6.5% to 798,100 vehicles, offsetting the weaker demand registered in the US and Brazil.

January’s deliveries were the highest among the last four months, as Volkswagen announced its Group sales (which include the VW namesake brand, but also the luxury Audi and the affordable Czech brand Skoda) in the home region of Europe, which for 2013 were down slightly by 0.5%, recovered to a 8.5 % increase to 273,700 autos.

“The Volkswagen Group has made a good start to the new year. Even though last January’s delivery figures reflected the special effect brought about by the Chinese New Year, we still grew deliveries further in the first month of this year. And we are seeing the first increases in Europe, above all in Western Europe, where the downturn appears to have bottomed out”, Group Board Member for Sales Christian Klingler said in Wolfsburg on Friday, and added: “This is a good start to what will be a challenging year.”

In China the group saw its sales up 15.5 % to 344,400 vehicles, while the entire Asia-pacific region accounted for a 14.8% growth to 374,400 cars. Meanwhile, things looked badly in the US, where deliveries fell 13.4 % to only 36,900 cars and the entire South American region declined 19.5 % to 62,200 cars, with Brazil slumping 21.4 % to 43,600 vehicles.
