BRICS Summit - Emissions Cheating
German politicians and business leaders are increasingly worried about the long-term impact of the domestic carmakers' emissions-cheating scam. Dieselgate doesn't look like it's going to die down anytime soon.
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.
The Federal Transport Authority is seeking a recall of 19,000 SUVs in Germany after discovering the luxury vehicles emitted excessive pollutants due to cheating software. Other countries are expected to follow suit.
