Volkswagen sales hit record of 10.74 million in 2017
Volkswagen sales rose 4.3% from 10.30 million in 2016, when Volkswagen passed Japanese rival Toyota to become the globe’s largest auto producer for that year
Frankfurt, Germany: German automaker Volkswagen had record sales of 10.74 million vehicles last year as markets in Brazil and Russia rebounded strongly.
Sales rose 4.3% from 10.30 million in 2016, when Volkswagen passed Japanese rival Toyota to become the globe’s largest auto producer for that year.
The figures show the Wolfsburg-based company continuing its effort to move past a scandal that broke in September 2015 over cars it had rigged to cheat on diesel emissions tests.
Sales last year were boosted by a strong December, when sales rose 8.5%. For the year, the company saw big jumps in Russia and Brazil, and significant gains in China and the United States.
CEO Matthias Mueller said in a statement Wednesday that “we are thankful for the trust of our customers.”
