Did the German government cosy up to car companies? The transport minister claims his department didn't play down reports about emissions-cheating after pressure from the industry. The latest twist in Germany's so-called "Dieselgate" scandal …
Chief Executive Oliver Blume has said the sports carmaker will focus on petrol/gasoline, hybrid and all-electric vehicles. Porsche and its parent Volkswagen have seen their image take a beating in the wake of Dieselgate.
German government ministers met at Chancellor Angela Merkel's offices on Friday to discuss the vexatious diesel question. After years of wrangling, a solution is dearly sought, but what are the realistic options?
Germany's coalition government has announced details of a wide-ranging diesel deal. The agreement hopes to deal with the country's air pollution problems, without upsetting car owners — or manufacturers — too much.
German politicians and business leaders are increasingly worried about the long-term impact of the domestic carmakers' emissions-cheating scam. Dieselgate doesn't look like it's going to die down anytime soon.
