PRAGUE (Reuters) – Deliveries of Skoda Auto cars, part of the Volkswagen Group (VOWG.DE), dropped 7.4 percent in October, largely in European markets due to conversions to conform to the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test (WLTP) anti-pollution rules.

Skoda Auto also said on Thursday that its overall 10-month deliveries rose 6.1 percent to 1.03 million vehicles.
