VW's Skoda deliveries drop 16 percent in September as WLTP rules start

PRAGUE (Reuters) - Deliveries of Skoda Auto cars, part of the Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) group, dropped 16 percent in September, largely in European markets due to conversions to conform to the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test (WLTP) anti-pollution rules.

Skoda Auto said on Thursday overall its nine-month sales rose 7.8 percent to 939,100 vehicles, including a 28 percent rise in its Russian market.
