Volkswagen AG’s sales dropped below the 10 million-car milestone reached last year as the Chinese market slowed and the company’s cheating on diesel emissions deterred customers.

Deliveries declined 2 percent to 9.93 million vehicles, including a 5.2 percent drop in December, the Wolfsburg, Germany-based company said Friday in a statement. This year will be no less challenging, the company said.
