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.
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.
Luxury sports carmaker Ferrari has said it may build a crossover utility vehicle, calling the SUV market "too big and too inviting" to ignore. It promised the brand's exclusivity would not be compromised.
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.
