BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) increased sales at its core passenger-car brand by 1.1 percent in June to 514,900 autos as growing demand in Europe and Asia outweighed declines in the Americas.

Six-month deliveries at VW's largest division by sales were up 3.8 percent at 3.07 million cars, Wolfsburg-based VW said on Tuesday.
