Volk­swa­gen Pas­sen­ger Ve­hi­cles de­liv­ered more than three mil­lion ve­hi­cles in the first half year for the first time in the com­pany’s his­tory. A to­tal of 3.07 mil­lion ve­hi­cles were handed over to cus­tomers world­wide, rep­re­sent­ing an in­crease of 3.8 per cent.

Volk­swa­gen Pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cles de­liv­ered 514 900 mod­els in the month of June.

De­vel­op­ments at Volk­swa­gen Pas­sen­ger Ve­hi­cles in the first half year were sta­ble thanks to the brand’s con­vinc­ing model range, Volk­swa­gen Group and the Volk­swa­gen Pas­sen­ger Ve­hi­cles sales and mar­ket­ing board mem­ber Chris­tian Klin­gler said.

“The Golf in par­tic­u­lar continues to be a best­seller — not only as a clas­sic Golf, but also in the Vari­ant or Sportsvan ver­sions,” he said.

“The sit­u­a­tion on global mar­kets will re­main chal­leng­ing in the sec­ond half of the year and will keep us very much on our toes.”

In con­trast, de­liv­er­ies in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion in the first half year grew by 16.8 per cent, with the brand hand­ing over 1.50 mil­lion ve­hi­cles to cus­tomers, while in China and Hong Kong 1.39 mil­lion units were de­liv­ered dur­ing the same pe­riod.
