Volkswagen Truck & Bus sees unit sales continue to increase in Q3
• Around 133,000 trucks and buses sold from January through September 2016
• Truck sales of the MAN and Scania brands up 12% in Western Europe
• Renschler: "Commercial vehicle sales in Brazil are set to pick up again in 2017"
Volkswagen Truck & Bus sold 132,860 trucks and buses from January through September 2016, up 3% year-on-year.
Andreas Renschler, the Member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG responsible for commercial vehicles and CEO of Volkswagen Truck & Bus, is pleased: "The third quarter of 2016 also went well. We continued to boost total unit sales, despite the ongoing crisis in Latin America. The market in Brazil seems to have bottomed out now. I expect that sales will start to pick up again slowly in 2017 and that we will be able to leverage our strong position there."
