The crisis at Volkswagen continues to grow. The carmaker has told the US Environmental Protection Agency that the use of emissions cheating devices in its larger diesels goes back to 2009. That will mean more recalls and more billions in fines.
German carmakers have condemned experiments they paid for that exposed monkeys to toxic diesel fumes. VW also apologized for a lack of judgment in a further case connected to the Dieselgate emissions scandal.
Prosecutors and police officers have extended their raids on Audi facilities in the German cities of Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm. The carmaker is suspected of having manipulated more cars than hitherto acknowledged.
German carmaker Volkswagen has reported record global sales in 2017 after being dogged by the costly emissions cheating scandal. VW made the announcement as it unveiled an updated Jetta model at the Detroit Auto Show.
The German carmaker has lodged a complaint with Germany's highest court, seeking to overturn a lower court's ruling that it must appoint a special auditor to investigate its Dieselgate emissions scandal.
