Saloon registrations rise 4.7% as demand for Volkswagen slumps

By Stelios Orphanides

The increase in saloon car registrations slowed down to an annual 4.7 per cent in October from over 35 per cent the month before, which is the slowest rate of increase this year, the statistical service said.

Overall saloon registrations in October were 1,744 which was 15 per cent less compared to September, Cystat said in a statement on its website, two months after a scandal broke out involving a software installed in Volkswagen’s EA 189 diesel engines capable of manipulating emission data rocked Germany’s largest car maker.
