  By market segment, compact cars were the backbone of vw's growth in China last month, with an almost universal upswing that included compact sedans, compact suvs and compact coupes.
  Compact car:
  · Shanghai Volkswagen new lavida increased 1.7% year-on-year from 31,674 to 31,709; The main growth models were 1.6lmt and 1.6lat, with the latter increasing by 13.8%.

  · faw-volkswagen golf increased 1.7% year-on-year from 17,800 to 18,108; The main growth models were golf 1.4TMT and golf 1.4TAT, up 47.1% and 18.1%, respectively.

  The compact SUV:
  Shanghai Volkswagen tiguan increased 0.8 percent year-on-year to 20,289 vehicles from 20,119; The main growth models are tiguan 1.8tmt and tiguan 1.8tat;
  Shanghai dazhong ye di increased 87.8% year-on-year to 3,150 vehicles from 1,677; This is the first time that the company has sold more than 3, 000 cars a month in China. The two best-selling cars, the 1.4tdsg and 1.8tdsg, both doubled, up 125.8% and 115.7%.
  Compact coupe:
  Shanghai dazhong lamando's wholesale sales volume in October was 10,041 and retail sales volume 11,335, with a month-on-month increase of 18.94%, both breaking the 10,000 mark. Total wholesale sales this year are 77,261. According to the distribution of vehicle types, lamando 1.4tdsg accounts for nearly 70%, followed by lamando 1.4tmt and lamando 1.8tdsg.
  Looking at the sales of the above models, it can be seen that the sales growth is mainly concentrated in 1.6 liter displacement and the following models. On October 1, a new round of auto market incentives came into effect, with the purchase tax on small cars with engines smaller than 1.6 liters cut in half. This became a key driver of the auto market's rapid recovery in October, especially in compact cars.
  U.S. sales: passat and compact led the way
  Unlike the Chinese market, Volkswagen posted growth in October across all major U.S. brands, including the Volkswagen passenger car brand, where deliveries rose 0.24% from a year earlier to 30,387 vehicles from 30,313, while cumulative sales fell 2.19% to 294,602 vehicles from 301,187.
  Among the model families, golf, passat and tiguan were the main growth drivers for the month.
  The biggest seller was the passat, up 24.60% from 6,513 to 8,116.
  It was followed by the golf series, up 40.20% from 4,076 to 5,716.
  Tiguan posted the highest growth, up 167.10% from 1,803 vehicles to 4,815 vehicles. Not only did sales double from a year earlier, it was also the best month for tiguan in the us.
