The group must “tackle very principle” of this topic. Müller pointed to the stricter emission standards from 2020.
“We suspect what five or ten years later followed”, he told the “Handelsblatt”. It is already clear that the emission control in diesel “enormously expensive and complex is”. Although the diesel was unchanged very popular with customers in Germany and in Europe. Whether the federal government wanted to change the tax advantages for this type of drive something “is not known”.
VW must “see in dialogue with politics, how it all goes.” VW had given last September following an investigation by US authorities to have used in around eleven million diesel vehicles an illegal software. This pressed on emissions from emission tests, so this seemed lower. (Afp)
