Does anyone remembers Dieselgate scandal? Probably not, as Volkswagen sales rised since the scandal first erupted. The German brand delivered 547,700 vehicles worldwide in September, 6.7 percent more than the previous year. 

A total of 4,374,900 vehicles were handed over to customers from January to September. As a result, cumulative deliveries by the Volkswagen brand exceeded the previous year's level for the first time (+0.6 percent). This means more money for the Germans when they will have to pay for their mistakes.

Volkswagen recorded a 1.6 percent increase in deliveries in the overall European market in September compared with the previous year, handing over 160,400 vehicles. The majority of these vehicles, 141,000 units, were delivered in Western Europe (+0.4 percent). 48,300 vehicles were handed over to customers in the home market of Germany, a slight decrease of 1.5 percent. 

Deliveries in the North America region in September totaled 45,600 units, almost matching the level of the previous year (-0.7 percent). In the USA, the decline slowed further compared with the previous year to -7.8 percent (24,100 vehicles).

The situation in the South America region remained tense. 20,500 vehicles were handed over to customers there in September, amounting to a substantial decline of 47.2 percent compared with the previous year.

In contrast, the Asia-Pacific region continued to develop well in September. 303,700 vehicles were delivered to customers there, a sizeable increase of 19.8 percent compared with the previous year. The market in China was the main driver of the growth in worldwide deliveries.

2,133,100 vehicles were handed over to customers in the Middle Kingdom from January to September. That is a new record and represents an increase of 11.4 percent, or 219,100 units, compared with the previous year.
