BRICS Summit - Emissions Cheating
The head of the world's biggest carmaker Volkswagen has issued an unprecedented call to end tax breaks for diesel fuel in Germany, saying the technology must make way for cleaner ways of driving.
The sports carmaker has become the latest Volkswagen subsidiary to be dragged into the group's emissions cheating scandal, after the German Ministry of Transport ordered a recall of thousands of Cayenne diesel models.
The German premium carmaker has renewed a claim that it doesn't use illegal software to artificially lower the emissions in some of its diesel vehicles, as German authorities are taking a closer look into Daimler cars.
Consultancy firm PwC has published its latest Global Innovation 1000 survey showing that corporate spending on Research & Development has never been higher, but also warning of the effects of economic nationalism.
