Volkswagen CEO Matthias Müller to Resign

  Volkswagen CEO Matthias Müller to Resign Volkswagen CEO Matthias Müller to Resign Volkswagen AG CEO Matthias Müller, who in his 31 months in the job has slashed budgets and worked to salvage the German automaker’s reputation following the diesel-emissions scandal, is expected to resign as early as this Friday. The company released a muddled statement referring to “personnel changes” and stating that Müller “showed his general willingness to contribute to the changes.

New Emissions Tests Show Almost All New Diesels Still Dirty . Current analysis reveals that almost each new diesel automobile mannequin produced in Europe because the “Dieselgate” scandal of 2015 remains to be thought-about too pollutive, based on The Guardian.

Recent research shows that nearly every new diesel car model produced in Europe since the “Dieselgate” scandal of 2015 is still considered too pollutive, according to The Guardian.

Emission tests that emit a beam of light to analyze the exhaust plume, the shape that exhaust fumes form when emitted from an exhaust pipe of vehicles, were used 370,000 times in the United Kingdom, France, and other countries. The findings were then compiled into a new rating system called The Real Urban Emissions (TRUE) Initiative and were made public earlier this week.

During “Dieselgate,” it was discovered that Volkswagen cheated emissions tests with trick equipment. However, since then, almost all other car manufacturers have been producing diesels that emitted far more in real-world driving conditions than in official lab-based tests, according to the aforementioned report.

Fiat Chrysler And U.S. Government Close To Diesel Settlement

  Fiat Chrysler And U.S. Government Close To Diesel Settlement Further talks are planned, but the end is in sight. Fiat Chrysler looks set to avoid an unenviable sequel to the Dieselgate saga by agreeing to a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice. The justice department was seeking "substantial" civil fines from the car maker, alleging that it used defeat devices on over 100,000 cars sold since 2014 to get around diesel emissions regulations.However, the company and federal lawyers now look set to agree a settlement that will bring an end to the issue.

Emissions tests that are impossible for carmakers to cheat show that almost all diesel car models launched in Europe since the “dieselgate” scandal remain highly polluting. Broccoli coffee: scientists create new way to eat more greens.

Emissions tests that are impossible for carmakers to cheat show that almost all diesel car models The True analysis shows that new diesel models released in 2016 were still on average five over tens of millions of dirty diesels that are still on the roads producing the toxic smog we daily breathe.

TRUE results show that new diesel models of various makes released in 2016 were still on average five or more times over the European Union’s official limit of 0.08mg of nitrogen oxides per kilometer. 2017 models were nearly four times over.

It is estimated that Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) pollution contributes to 23,500 early deaths each year in the U.K alone.

Beam tests are still taking place and will be able to detect highly polluting models in the future.

“I see this remote sensing mostly as a screening tool, to see which vehicle models behave suspiciously,” said Peter Mock, at the International Council on Clean Transportation which, along with the FIA Foundation and other groups, produced the TRUE rating system.

But Nick Molden, chief executive of Emissions Analytics, warned that the TRUE rating system, which averages the same models across several years, will not show when the latest model has radically cut its pollution.

Audi CEO Rupert Stadler taken into custody over Dieselgate .
Authorities hold Stadler in "investigative detention," afraid he'll try to suppressIn November 2015 Audi admitted installing emissions defeat devices in its cars, and Audi's been pegged in several reports as the source of the initial defeat software responsible for Dieselgate. At the end of May, authorities named Stadler and Audi board member Bernd Martens as two key suspects among 18 being investigated in the emissions investigation.
