The reputation of Germany’s auto industry doesn’t seem to have been tarnished by the diesel emissions scandal. At least in Puebla, Mexico - a city that’s home to VW, Audi and Daimler plants. Yara Garay Gonzalez has a coveted trainee spot there.
The German premium carmaker has moved rapidly to fill the gap left by chief executive Rupert Stadler, who was detained on Monday in connection with his role in Audi's emissions-cheating scandal in the US and Europe.
In what is viewed as a major win for German consumers in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal rocking the nation’s mighty auto industry, the German parliament has passed legislation enabling class-action lawsuits.
CEO Rupert Stadler was arrested for his role in the carmaker's emissions-cheating. He won't be the last car boss to end up in jail, says Thomas Neufeld, as the clean-up of the flagship industry hasn't really started yet.
German carmakers like Volkswagen and Daimler have so far only admitted to things that can no longer be hidden from the public eye anyway. DW's Henrik Böhme says this will have to end badly.
