Das Auto has done it again, delivering over more than 2.53 million vehicles in the first half of 2011. This represents a substantial 11.8 percent increase over the same period last year. In doing so, the company sets a new record for the first half of the year. The news follows last month's report that VW sold over 2 million vehicles in the first five month of the year. The brand also reported an increase in sales for the month of June, with 438,500 units sold, an increase of 9.8 percent over June 2010’s 399,200 sales figure.

“The positive trend for the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand in the first half of the year is very encouraging. It would be a major success if we could keep up this momentum during the second six months,” Christian Klingler, Board Member for Sales and Marketing for the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, commented in Wolfsburg on Tuesday. Volkswagen Passenger Cars reported a substantial sales increase in the Central and Eastern European region, where demand grew 42.2 percent in the first half of 2011. Sales also more than doubled in Russia, which now represents about a third of the region’s total figures. Deliveries in North America, where the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand handed over 237,700 vehicles in the first six months, were also substantially improved.

Moving closer to home, the German automaker delivered 950,100 vehicles in the Asia-Pacific region from January to June, of which 852,800 units were handed over to customers in China, the largest single market. VW looks set to develop the Asia market with the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with DRB-HICOM Berhad to collaborate on local assembly in Malaysia.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
