The Volkswagen group is reportedly aiming to surpass 2013’s 9.73 million recorded deliveries, that came as a direct result of increasing China sales. Company CEO, Martin Winterkorn reportedly saidL
“With rising volume and new models, we will increasingly see positive earnings effects as well. The chances are good that we’ll even exceed the mark of 10 million deliveries this year.”
Further driving the growth in the future will see an onslaught of 100 new
models that will be spread out across the group’s multiple brands.
Putting the grand scheme in motion could mean spending as much as €84.2 billion (approx. $117 billion), with plans to maximize cost-cutting by extending the use of modular platforms in a wider variation of vehicle types.
