Consumers sceptical after diesel deal - Has emissions scandal affected US consumers? - Made in Rwanda
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.
A pre-election poll suggests Germans have fallen out of love with their diesel cars, and the politicians who let "dieselgate" unfold right under their noses. "Made in Germany" no longer means what it once did.
After German chancellor candidate Martin Schulz called for a Europe-wide quota for electric cars, the debate among German politicians, the EU and carmakers has picked up steam. In China, such a quota already exists.
The German car group is offering owners of older diesel cars rebates of up to 10,000 euros when they trade in their vehicle for a new lower-emissions car. VW subsidiaries Audi and Porsche have announced similar plans.
