We are experiencing a tailwind in Central and Eastern Europe as well as North America and were able to increase deliveries by the Group, in some cases significantly, in these regions. On the other hand, deliveries in Germany and the Asia-Pacific region remained below the previous year's level,' said Fred Kappler, Head of Group Sales of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, summarizing the figures for February.

In Central and Eastern Europe, Group deliveries in February grew by 11.6 per cent to 55,500 vehicles. In Russia, the Group delivered 13,100 vehicles, an increase of 6.3 per cent. In February, 251,700 vehicles were handed over to customers in Western Europe, including 97,400 units in the home market of Germany.

In North America, the Group delivered 67,300 vehicles in February, achieving growth of 8.0 per cent. Of this figure, 42,800 deliveries were recorded in the USA – a rise of 13.3 per cent. In South America, the Group delivered 35,400 vehicles (+4.1 per cent).
