Volkswagen Group reported stronger-than-anticipated third-quarter earnings on Wednesday, but lowered its outlook for 2019 vehicle deliveries citing a “challenging market environment.”
The world’s biggest automaker posted operating profit of 4.5 billion euros ($5 billion) for the third quarter of 2019. That compared with operating profit of 2.7 billion euros a year earlier. Analysts polled by Reuters had expected third-quarter operating profit to come in at 4.4 billion euros.
