In the regions of North America (+3.3 percent) and South America (+3.9 percent), Volkswagen Group deliveries rose compared with August 2018, while the Asia-Pacific region reported a drop of 4.8 percent. Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales: “The Volkswagen Group continued to perform well in a challenging market environment in August, with a slight rise in its global market share. On a positive note, we once again increased our market share in China, our largest market, significantly.”
