The China Post - - INTERNATIONAL -

A Ger­man in­dus­try group says that Ger­man car ex­ports were up 7 per­cent in Septem­ber com­pared with a year ear­lier, while new regis­tra­tions of cars at home climbed 5 per­cent.

The VDA group said Fri­day that Ger­man man­u­fac­tur­ers ex­ported 417,800 cars last month. It didn’t give a break­down of the des­ti­na­tions but pointed to ris­ing de­mand else­where in Western Europe.

In Ger­many it­self, regis­tra­tions of both Ger­man-made and for­eign-branded cars climbed 5 per­cent to a to­tal 272,500. VDA said that new regis­tra­tions of diesel cars ac­counted for about 47 per­cent of the to­tal and were up 8 per­cent.

The group didn’t break down the num­ber of cars sold at home and ex­ported by in­di­vid­ual man­u­fac­tur­ers. News of the Volk­swa­gen diesel emis­sions-rig­ging scan­dal in the U.S. emerged Sept. 18.
