VW emissions scandal:The EPA says VW had also installed cheat-software in the company's larger diesel engines over the past three years, used in its Porsche Cayenne, the VW Touareg and other Audi models. Volkswagen denies the latest charges.
US regulators have approved a fix for emissions systems in 38,000 Volkswagen AG 3.0-liter vehicles. The decision means the German carmaker won't have to buy the vehicles back, potentially saving more than $1 billion.
In the wake of its diesel emissions scandal, Volkswagen has replaced half of the supervisory board at its Audi subsidiary, with CEO Rupert Stadler remaining firmly at the helm of the premium carmaker.
VW's emissions scam has stained the firm's reputation and even undercut Germany’s well-cultivated image as a bastion of excellence, precision and environmentalism. One of those behind the scandal is set to be sentenced.
A court has ruled that the German carmaker can't be forced to pay Dieselgate environmental damages at the state as well as federal level. The US state of Wyoming sought to fine VW hundreds of millions of dollars.
