Audi sales are down as its involvement in the dieselgate scandal unfolds. Board members have been forced out and CEO Rupert Stadler's job is on the line.
In the wake of its diesel emissions scandal, Volkswagen has replaced half of the supervisory board at its Audi subsidiary, with CEO Rupert Stadler remaining firmly at the helm of the premium carmaker.
The bloc's anti-trust officials have searched the offices of the premium carmaker this week in a probe investigating BMW and four other German automobile firms for suspected anti-competitive practices.
A former top manager for Audi has reportedly been detained as part of an investigation into the emissions cheating scandal at parent company Volkswagen. Prosecutors say they are widening their probe.
US regulators have approved a fix for emissions systems in 38,000 Volkswagen AG 3.0-liter vehicles. The decision means the German carmaker won't have to buy the vehicles back, potentially saving more than $1 billion.
