The Touareg is our bestseller in the region and the launch of the new generation Touareg recently has boosted our sales quite dramatically for the first half of 2007. The launch of Volkswagen??s new coupe-convertible, the Eos, and the introduction to the Jetta 2.5 litre earlier this year has also contributed to this growth. Apart from the excellent model range, professional market coverage by our partners has been crucial to our success.???
