In South America, the Volkswagen Group handed a total of 40,400 vehicles over to customers, recording strong growth of 34.3 percent compared with February 2018.

In the Asia-Pacific region, the Volkswagen Group delivered 257,100 vehicles, corresponding to a fall of 7.3 percent compared with February 2018. In the most important single market, China, the Group was unable to avoid the general shrinkage in the market but still gained market shares. 234,400 customers in China took delivery of a new vehicle from a Group brand, some 7.4 percent fewer than in February 2018.
