BERLIN Oct 14 Volkswagen posted the
biggest monthly increase in group deliveries in September since
its diesel emissions scandal broke a year ago.
New vehicle registrations rose 7.1 percent last month across
the Volkswagen (VW) group to 947,600 passenger cars, commercial
vehicles and heavy trucks, VW said on Friday, extending the
increase in year-to-date sales to 2.4 percent or 7.61 million.
"The increased deliveries make us optimistic we will be able
to master the upcoming challenges," group sales chief Fred
Kappler said in an emailed statement.
