[DETROIT] Sales of German carmakers including Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW in the United States may hold steady this year, the VDA auto industry association said on Monday.

US deliveries of German manufacturers may come in at about 1.4 million cars in 2016, on par with last year, and are poised to grow over the medium term, VDA President Matthias Wissmann said at a news conference at the Detroit auto show.

"It is not yet possible to see the full consequences of the events surrounding diesel cars," Mr Wissmann said.

Overall sales of US passenger cars and light trucks may increase 1 percent this year to 17.5 million autos from 17.4 million in 2015, he said.
