In the German home market, 17,700 vehicles were handed over to customers (+1.2 per cent). Sales also increased in Spain (+17.8 per cent to 2,200 vehicles) and Italy (+1.6 per cent to 1,800 vehicles).

The markets in Africa (-0.5 per cent to 1,800 vehicles) recorded a fall in vehicle deliveries in the first two months of the year. The same applied to markets in the Middle East (-28.2 per cent to 3,300 vehicles) – first and foremost on account of the volatile political situation in Turkey.
