Volkswagen Middle East has announced a 30 percent increase in deliveries across the GCC in 2013, compared to the previous year.

The German auto giant delivered almost 14,000 vehicles to customers across eight Middle East markets, it said in a statement.

The results for Volkswagen Middle East reveal a continued strong performance for the best-selling Passat, the deliveries of which were behind the most successful month ever recorded for Volkswagen Middle East, it said, adding that an increase in overall deliveries of 51 percent was recorded during the month of July.

Thomas Milz, managing director, Volkswagen Middle East said: "While global market conditions are still challenging we are experiencing steady growth in the Middle East and achieving a 30 percent increase across our regional markets last year, is testament to that.

"The Passat had a particularly strong year and this is a clear demonstration that the Volkswagen offering of world class German engineering at an affordable price, continues to attract our customers who appreciate the consistent quality and style that our brand brings."

Milz added: "2013 also represented a year of regional investment in our services in both sales and aftersales. A number of our partners across the region will open new state of the art showrooms and service centres this year in an on-going commitment to providing Volkswagen Service Excellence."
