vw at Volkswagen Delivers Two Million Cars In Five Months

2011 seems to be a fabulous year for Volkswagen Group as in the first five month of it they’ve delivered 2.09 million vehicles to customers.

That is a record for the number of cars handed over to customers till May of 2011. They’ve also reported a significant increase of 16 percent in May as well, with 436,400 vehicles sold. This astonishing record is a result of VW’s global growth, specially in the emerging markets. Here’s an outlook of their 2011 performance so far:

The brand delivered 792,100 (666,400; +18.9 percent) vehicles in the Asia / Pacific region from January to May, of which 714,200 (619,700; +15.3 percent) units were handed over to customers in China, the largest single market. Deliveries in North America, where the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand handed over 194,600 (162,600; +19.7 percent) vehicles to customers in the first five months, were also very encouraging. The brand reported a noticeable increase in the Central and Eastern Europe region, with deliveries rising 40.2 percent to 71,900 (51,300) units.

The brand almost doubled deliveries in the single market of Russia to 34,400 (17,300; +99.1 percent) units. Volkswagen Passenger Cars also reported a rise on its home market of Germany, delivering 248,800 (240,000; +3.6 percent) vehicles there.

“Our positive trend continued in May and we have posted yet another delivery record,” Christian Klingler, Board Member for Sales and Marketing for the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, commented in Wolfsburg on Tuesday.
