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.
The US state of California has told the German carmaker it must pay an additional $154 million in environmental fines. VW is nursing heavy losses after using software to help its vehicles cheat emissions tests.
A San Francisco judge has reported "substantial progress" in negotiations between US authorities and the German carmaker. Volkswagen has been rocked by an emissions scandal affecting up to 11 million vehicles worldwide.
Sergio Marchionne has rejected accusations of emissions cheating in the US. One day after officials reached a settlement with Volkswagen, the Environmental Protection Agency says Fiat Chrysler also used illegal software.
Audi also installed emission-cheating software in some 24,000 luxury models, according to German Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt. His admission follows ructions at Volkswagen over health-damaging exhaust gases.
