Volkswagen performed strongly last year after selling more than 10 million vehicles across its marques.
On Sunday, the German automaker confirmed that the company sold 10.14 million vehicles in 2014 — a 4.2% increase year-on-year.
In a statement ahead of the annual Detroit car show, Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn said the performance was “despite challenging market conditions.”
The company aims to become the largest auto manufacturer by sales in three years time.
Sales this year were bolstered in part by strong performances from Volkswagen’s luxury brands, Audi and Porsche, along with the growth of the Czech automobile line Skoda.
