“The Volkswagen Group is in robust shape despite the economic uncertainty, and our development in the period to August remained satisfactory. For the first time, we delivered over six million vehicles to customers in the first eight months of a year,” Group Board Member for Sales Christian Klingler said in Wolfsburg on Friday, and added: “Notwithstanding the difficult conditions, we still expect deliveries for the full year to exceed the prior-year level.”
