Global sales of cars, sport utility vehicles and vans rose to 828,600 last month from 794,300 the same month a year earlier.

    “Our brands enjoyed particularly strong growth in China. However, the challenges on the other world markets remain unchanged,” said Volkswagen board member Christian Klingler.

    In the January-November period, group auto sales climbed 4.7 percent to 8.68 million vehicles, the company said.
