HAMBURG (Reuters) – German new car registrations fell by 10 percent year-on-year in November to around 273,000 vehicles, a source familiar with the numbers told Reuters on Tuesday, as automakers like Volkswagen <VOWG_p.DE> are struggling to adapt to the new WLTP emissions testing regime.

The 10 percent decrease comes after a 7.4 percent decline in October. German car authority KBA is due to publish official figures on Tuesday.
