With the global economy currently in decline Volkswagen have anounced some good news. In the first 10 months of 2008 the Volkswagen Group have delivered 5.29 million vehicles to customers worldwide, which is a 2.8% increase on the same period in 2007. The group therefore fared noticeably better than the over market which was down 2.9%. Volkswagen expanded in many growth markets with high growth in Brazil, China, India and Russia. So maybe all is not bad in the motor trade!
