Volkswagen Group Sells Record Breaking 4 Million Vehicles during First Half of 2011

Volkswagen Group recently posted their half yearly sales figures, which accounts for 4mn vehicles sold, a figure, which the company hopes to expand to 8mn by year end.

The CEO of the company, Martin Winterkorn, was quoted as saying that sales in the first half of the year were driven by the increasing demand for their models across the world. He said that sales of Volkswagen alone grew by 11.8% since the last year, with a record of 2.5mn vehicles sold in 2011s first half.

He also said that annual sales for the nine brands, including Skoda, SEAT and Audi, may for the first time touch the 8mn mark. The company made profits to the tune of 7.23bn Euros or $10.13bn, last year. They also aim to reclaim their position of the top car maker in the world, which seems quite achievable now, according to Winterkorn.
