The Volkswagen Group is defying the economic crisis and gearing up to set a new sales milestone this year. For the first time in its history, the German maker sold 6.11 million vehicles in the first nine months of the year, representing a 13.9 percent increase over the same period in 2010. "We are very pleased with the development of the Group. Delivering six million vehicles in nine months represents a key milestone on the way to reaching our annual target of eight million vehicles sold in 2011," said Group Board member for Sales Christian Klingler.

"We are also expecting very good delivery figures for the fourth quarter. We continue to keep a close eye on developments in global automobile markets, some of which are highly volatile," Klingler added.

Asia Pacific: +17.3% to 1.92 million units

North America: +21.4% to 485,400 units

South America: +9.5% to 700,900 units

Europe: + 10.8% to 2.77 million units

In its home market of Germany, the VW Group's deliveries grew by 12.3 percent to 864,400 units. Breaking down by brands in the VW Group:

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.
