In the South America region, the Group succeeded in boosting deliveries despite a fall in the over-all market and therefore significantly expanded its market share.

In the Asia-Pacific region, the Volkswagen Group recorded a slight fall of 0.4 percent in deliveries to 4,530,100 vehicles. In an overall market which shrank more strongly, the market share was significantly expanded. In China, the Group’s largest single market, deliveries in a shrinking over-all market rose by 0.6 percent to 4,233,600 vehicles, leading to a significant rise in the Group’s market share.
