Volkswagen's only plant in the US is in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It's set to be expanded and the workforce enlarged. But after the emissions scandal worries are growing that VW may not keep to its plans.
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.
Here it is again, the VW diesel crisis. Even if the German auto giant appears reformed and wants to look ahead, the legal processing in its Dieselgate scandal is only at a starting stage, says DW’s Henrik Böhme.
The US unit of Volkswagen has called for the Dieselgate trials to be delayed, after a plaintiffs' lawyer linked the firm with the Holocaust. The lawyer, Michael Melkersen, made the comments in a Netflix documentary.
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.
