AJAX, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/03/12 -- Each month of 2012 has
resulted in record sales for Volkswagen Canada, and November was no
exception. The country's 136 dealers delivered a total of 4,659 new
cars and light trucks last month, a figure 16% higher than during the
same month last year (4,015). Year-to-date, the total of 55,355
represents a new full-year record with December sales still to go,
and betters last year's total by 13%. 
"Our results so far this year have been overwhelming," stated John
White, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group Canada. "With a
tremendous range of products, our customers have a multitude of
inexpensive, fuel efficient and fun-to-drive Volkswagens from which
to choose." 
The redesigned mid-sized Passat has experienced explosive growth in
sales figures this year, with Canadian consumers finding great value
in its combination of size and price. With a range of available
engines, including the TDI Clean Diesel, the Passat offers a
compelling choice for mid-size sedan drivers. 
TDI Clean Diesel engines are now available on the Jetta, Beetle,
Golf, Golf Wagon, Passat and Touareg models. These engines are
recognized as the industry benchmark for power and efficiency,
allowing drivers to have the best of both worlds.
