Volkswagen sales hit by new emissions rules

Wolfsburg, Germany (dpa) - German carmaker Volkswagen sold significantly fewer cars in September after new rules were brought in for emissions tests.

The core VW brand sold 485,000 cars worldwide last month, representing a fall of 18.3 per cent compared to the same month in 2017, the company said on Tuesday from its headquarters in the northern city of Wolfsburg.

The reason for the massive slump was the introduction of the Worldwide-harmonized Light-duty vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) in September.

In Europe sales crashed by 42.6 per cent year on year to 91,100 vehicles, while the domestic market saw a 47.1-per-cent drop over the same period to 23,300.

"The development in September was a setback," VW head of sales Juergen Stackmann said, adding that the company had foreseen the hit the sales would take while it implemented the changes, which he predicted would be complete by the end of the year.

In China, VW saw a 10.5-per-cent drop in sales to 277,800 over the same period, mainly due to uncertainty among consumers about the impact of tariffs imposed on cars and components by the United States.

VW sold 4.8 per cent fewer cars, or 30,600, to the US in September.

In the last nine months, thanks to a particularly strong start to the year, VW sold 4.6 million vehicles worldwide, an increase of 2.9 per cent on the same period in 2017.
