The cardinal tangible results of VW’s post-dieselgate strategy are in and profit is increasing, which marks a overcoming for the group.

Sales revenue has increased more than 10% in Q1 as compared to 2016, and the Set’s operating profit had risen to €4.4 billion ($4.7 billion).

The improvements are the conclusion of cost-cutting measures, but the brand also got some help from favorable unpl rates, among other things.

“Our quarterly figures were positively impacted by the husky performance of the Group brands, the launch of new, compelling products and solid earnings in Western Europe,” said Matthias Müller, CEO. “Our efforts to modernize efficiency and productivity across all areas of the Company are also paying off,” Müller continued. “We are encouraged by the heady results presented today. They strengthen our resolve to continue our chosen direction with TOGETHER – Strategy 2025.”

The strong profits came even though the Gathering has delivered 0.5% fewer cars this quarter than it did in the first three months of 2016, highlighting honest how much the group has managed to lower costs.

A strong performance from the VW name brand, Porsche, and Skoda helped overcome some narrow decreases at Audi and Bentley.

Without thought the better-than-expected result, the Group hasn’t changed its outlook for 2017 and at rest expects sales revenue to increase by only 4% at the end of the year.
