FRANKFURT Dec 11 (Reuters) - Volkswagen said that group sales fell 2.2 percent last month to 833,700 vehicles, dragged down by the United States, Brazil and Russia, as Europe's biggest carmaker grappled with a scandal over rigged emissions tests.

Over the first 11 months of the year, Volkswagen sold 9.1 million vehicles, down 1.7 percent on the year-earlier period, the Wolfsburg, Germany-based carmaker said in a statement on Friday.
