Volkswagen Group sales announced

With Dieselgate scandal destroying all VAG Group reputation and affecting current cars on sale, it is now time to see how many cars the brands have sold after the first ten months of this year.

Important to know, from January to October, the Volkswagen Group handed over 8.26 million vehicles to customers.

Most of these vehicles, 505,900 units, were handed over in the United States, representing growth of 3.4 per cent. In South America, where the market is still declining, deliveries by the Group fell with a consistent -26.4%. Deliveries in Brazil, at 337,300 units, were the key factor.
