The emissions scandal does not just affect VW top executives and EU authorities. It is also having a deep impact on Volkswagen employees. They worry about the car maker's reputation and their jobs.
Scandal-hit German carmaker Volkswagen has confirmed that its global headquarters was searched again by prosecutors. The raids were part of an investigation into suspected market manipulation back in 2015.
German automaker Volkswagen posted a doubled net profit in 2017, selling more cars than ever before. Its bottom line held up despite an emissions scandal, but fallout from a recent testing scandal lies ahead.
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.
Despite the Dieselgate emissions scandal, the German carmaker says it sold a record number of vehicles last year. But VW's growth in Western Europe was more sluggish than in the rest of the world.
