World-wide group sales for March rose 53% year-on-year to 955,500 vehicles, the German company said.
In China, vehicle deliveries increased to 345,000 in the month from 209,600 a year ago.
For the first quarter of the year, world-wide deliveries were up 21% year-on-year at 2,431,900.
The Volkswagen group includes a number of brands, such as Audi, Skoda, Porsche and the company's namesake Volkswagen passenger cars.
