Wolfsburg, November 16, 2017 — The Volkswagen Group handed over 940,800 vehicles to customers in October, an increase of 8.2 percent compared with the previous year. «October showed that our customers all over the world trust our brands and products. Group deliveries grew significantly in all regions», Fred Kappler, Head of Group Sales at Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, commented. The Group handed over 8.7 million vehicles to customers worldwide in the first ten months, an increase of 3.2 percent.

In Germany, 103,400 (+0.8 percent) customers chose a new vehicle from the Group. The good performance was in particular due to developments in Central and Eastern Europe, where 66,200 new vehicles (+15.5 percent) were delivered. The Group has enjoyed solid growth of 3.0 percent in Europe since the beginning of the year.

Once again, the Group reported significant gains in the North America region in October, handing over 81,700 new vehicles (+6.6 percent) to customers.
