VW Group Sells Over 2 Million Cars in First Quarter

Volkswagen Group sales up 9.6% in first quarter over last year

Volkswagen Group has sold 2.16 million cars in the first quarter of 2012; it is the first time that the brand has ever sold more than 2 million cars in a quarter. It represents a 9.6% increase over over last year when the brand sold 1.97 million cars in the same period. 

“The Volkswagen Group developed very well in the first quarter. We produced another strong performance in North America, China and Russia. However, uncertainty continues, particularly on the markets in Western Europe”, said the Group Board Member for Sales Christian Klingler.

Unfortunately, sales in West Europe were actually down 4.7% over last year. Although things were better in Germany where sales were up 5.7%. Among the highest growth of any Volkswagen market came in the United States who bought 34% more cars than last year. 

From an individual brand perspective, there really was no clear winner; although, there was a clear loser. Volkswagen brand sales were up 10.8%, and Audi sales were up 10.5%. Skoda sales were up 11.8%. Even Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles sales were up 7.9%. However, the big loser was Seat who saw sales fall 11.6%.



Seat urgently needs new models.
