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.
German police have taken Porsche manager Jörg Kerner into custody, amid concerns that he could flee the country. The emissions scandal has spread from Volkswagen's core VW division to many other brands.
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.
Despite ongoing issues emanating from the 2015 Dieselgate scandal, and existential concerns over the future of diesel itself, the Volkswagen Group sold more, made more and paid more in 2017 than ever before.
German auto giant BMW has announced it plans to recall nearly 12,000 cars after it admitted the vehicles had the wrong emissions software installed. BMW 5-series and 7-series built between 2012 and 2017 are affected.
