VW sales tumble

LONDON: Sales of new Volkswagen cars collapsed in Britain by nearly a fifth last month as the German carmaker was plagued by fallout from the pollution-cheating scandal, industry data showed on Friday. There were 12,958 new registrations of Volkswagen branded vehicles in November, down almost 20 per cent from the same month in 2014, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said. Sales of other key VW brands also fell sharply.
