    Here is a quote with the Phaeton figure (also mentions Bentley and Lambo). Very interesting blog, thanks for your work.

    “Volkswagen China Group announced today that it has delivered 1,476,200 cars from January to September to customers in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau (Jan-Sept 2009: 1,062,000). Bentley sold 653 units and Lamborghini sold 179 units during that time, an increase of 96.6 percent and 113.0 percent respectively.

    Sales volume of the Volkswagen brand amounted to 1,166,000 units, an increase of 33.8 percent, including 33,000 imported vehicles. This positive trend will be continued by the New Touareg, which will come to China shortly. The spectacular launch of the new Phaeton in the Forbidden City last month got a lot of attention in the Chinese media. With more than 2,227 deliveries in Mainland China in the first nine months, China is now the fastest growing market for the handcrafted flagship of Volkswagen.”

    During the first 9 months of this year, about 2,300 Phaetons were sold in China. Such imports are not shown in the statistics.

    Thanks Matt. It’s really strange that s-class, phaeton & co. can’t be found, maybe in the future.

    Hi Fnaeh,
    Bizarrely, no. I couldn’t find these numbers anywhere.
    The highest I have is the class just below that:

    1. Audi A6L: 9,358
    2. Mercedes E Class: 3,971
    3. BMW 5 Series: 3,300
    4. Toyota Crown: 2,924
    5. Volvo S80: 1,407
    6. Cadillac SLS: 612
    7. Buick Park Avenue: 144

    Hope this helps!
