Volkswagen's April global sales rise on strength in Germany, China

Volkswagen AG said its global sales in April rose to 519,600 vehicles, up 11% from the year-ago period, on the back of strong growth in Germany, China and Brazil.

In the first four months of 2018, global sales climbed to 2,044,900 vehicles, up 7.1% from the prior-year period.

"The sustained upward trend in our domestic market Germany, the U.S. and South America is particularly gratifying," said Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen board member for sales.

April sales in Germany went up 15% year over year to 52,700 vehicles, driven by demand for new models like the T-Roc. This result helped lift sales in Europe by 13% to 158,000 vehicles during the month.

Asia-Pacific sales, predominantly consisting of China, climbed 9.5% to 259,300 in April.

U.S. sales during the month rose 4.5% year over year to 28,800 vehicles, underpinned by strong SUV demand, but sales in the broader North American market slipped 0.1% to 46,200 vehicles during the month.

April sales in South America jumped 32.2% to 42,100 vehicles, buoyed by sales in Brazil increasing by 43.3% to 28,800 vehicles.

In the January-April period, sales in Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America and South America all grew by 7.7%, 8.1%, 1.0%, and 8.6%, respectively.
