Breaking Records! VW Announces August Sales, Up 1.5%


Go, Fast, go! Volkswagen announced August sales this morning, and they're just continuing on the roll they've been on all year, announcing a 1.5% increase over August of last year. That puts the automaker all about representin' Deutscheland with year-on-year sales up 14.7% ahead of 2005. VW's pegging the increase directly onto the less-speedy-than-the-GTI hot-hatch, the newly re-named Rabbit — which snapped up sales of 1,983 units over the 946 for the Golf predecessor. That's probably good — especially considering almost every other model — sales are down — like the SUV Touareg, which saw a 50% decrease from August of last year.
