VW says Iraq war had no effect on auto industry so far


WOLFSBURG, Germany, March 26 (Reuters) - Europe's biggest carmaker Volkswagen AG said on Wednesday the war against Iraq had so far had no noticeable effect on the global car industry.

"Until now there have been no noticeable movements either upwards or downwards," said VW Chief Executive Bernd Pischetsrieder at a suppliers fair.

He also said there had been no "noticeable" backlash from consumers in the United States, the world's biggest car market, against German cars despite the German government's opposition to the Iraq war.
