THE recent scandal over Volkswagen’s ‘green’ engines didn’t stop it topping the list of Spanish sales in 2015.
The German-owned car maker sold 88,300 vehicles last year, a 14.7% increase on 2014, according to the associations of manufacturers (ANFAC), dealers (Faconauto) and vendors (Ganvam).
VW’s strong sales come despite the furore over its so-called green engines, which omitted up to 40 times the permitted level of nitrogen oxide.
Seat, the Volkswagen-owned company, sold the second-highest number of cars, up 14.2% on 2014 at 77,529 units.
Renault were a close third, at 77,087.
