The ongoing crisis triggered by Volkswagen’s diesel emissions cheating scandal continued to take a toll on the automaker last month.
The VW brand reported a 10.6% sales slide last month, making it one of the few brands to see a dip at a time when the American car market is running red hot. The downturn came despite a sharp increase in VW incentives in recent months.
The news wasn’t all bad, however. VW did see a strong upturn in demand for its newly updated Tiguan sport-utility vehicle, and sibling brands Audi and Porsche scored big sales gain in March, despite also being tainted by the diesel scandal.
