Text from Volkswagen of America.
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Volkswagen of America, Inc. reported September sales of 21,646, representing a 3.7% increase when compared to September 2004 sales of 20,872.

This result marked the second straight month Volkswagen of America Inc. outsold the year previous, and highlighted growing momentum for the German automaker’s all-new 2006 Passat sedan that just reached dealers with appropriate launch volumes around the country last month. The wagon version of the all-new Passat comes early next year.

Passat sedan sales, which include the 2006 all-new versions equipped with the standard 2.0T, 200 horsepower four-cylinder, were 5,065 versus the same period last year when Volkswagen sold 3,917 sedans. This is a 29% percent increase in Passat sedans.
