Volkswagen AG's group sales were up 19 per cent on the year in November, powered by a strong increase at the core Volkswagen brand, the company said on Friday.
The company, based in Wolfsburg, said it delivered 531,300 cars last month, compared with 446,000 a year earlier. The Volkswagen brand alone saw a 25.8 per cent increase in sales. Other brands such as Skoda and Seat also saw increases. "We have exceeded our expectations so far this year," VW sales and marketing official Detlef Wittig said. He added that "our group brands are on the right track."
