Diesel Scandal Can't Keep Volkswagen Sales Down

Volkswagen's sales just keep going up despite its scandal over cars that cheated on diesel emissions tests. The German auto maker sold 7.9 percent more cars in November compared to a year ago. Volkswagen's core brand and its other makes including Audi, Skoda and SEAT sold 899,400 cars worldwide. November sales were boosted by China, the company's biggest market.

Announcing last week it would expand its gasoline hybrid technology development, the world's largest automaker said it would consider selling complete powertrain modules - engines, transmissions and other drive components - to its competitors.
