While electric and self-driving cars are receiving a lot of attention at the Frankfurt Motor Show, automakers continue to make most of their money from conventional vehicles.
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.
The newly appointed chief executive officer of German carmaker Volkswagen has said the company can only be successful in the long term if it stays on the path of a more transparent and open corporate culture.
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?
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.
