Electric mobility is all the rage at the IAA international car show in Frankfurt. But are German carmakers really ready to write off Diesel?
Though a future in which all cars are electric is still decades away, carmakers such as VW, BMW and Daimler are busy showcasing their green models. The question is how ethically clean are they?
A group of mainly German carmakers has launched a joint venture to build a network of fast charging stations for electric vehicles to support a drive to boost sales of environment-friendly cars across Europe.
Automakers at the Frankfurt car show, IAA, have been highlighting their e-auto credentials and distancing themselves from Dieselgate. But how will this impact the European car industry and its 12.6 million employees?
Two years of leaks about emissions cheating and pollution fears have damaged Germany's standing as the world leader in car production. But analysts think the scandal could have surprising positives for the industry.
