Volkswagen Group's China sales rose nearly 12 percent to 334,800 in April, led by the Audi and Skoda brands.
Audi sales jumped 14 percent from a year earlier to 52,411 on demand for the upgraded stretched A4 sedan.
Skoda deliveries surged 34 percent to 28,000, reflecting strong volumes generated by the Kodiaq and the Karoq SUVs.

VW Group didn’t disclose sales of its other brands in China.
Through April, the automaker delivered 1.34 million vehicles in China, its largest market worldwide, for an increase of 13 percent from the same period last year.
The numbers suggest VW outsold its closest rival, General Motors, in China for April, but not for the first four months.
GM stopped releasing monthly sales for China in April and will only release results on quarterly basis going forward.
