Prosecutors charge ex-VW chief in emissions scandal - US & China trade talks end without breakthrough - Limoges gets protection for its iconic porcelain
From diesel fraudster to pioneer of sustainable mobility: that's how German automotive giant Volkswagen wants to transform itself. The e-cars are also to be produced in a carbon-neutral way. How can this be achieved?
German carmaker Volkswagen said they "promptly" informed German authorities after discovering abnormalities in the new emissions software. The firm is still paying billions over the 2015 emissions cheating scandal.
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.
After German chancellor candidate Martin Schulz called for a Europe-wide quota for electric cars, the debate among German politicians, the EU and carmakers has picked up steam. In China, such a quota already exists.
