Over 40 Skincare: VW Scandal
It has various regulatory and government inquiries to identify the VW Scandal. California Air Resources Board is now looking for other manufacturers testing results. Ford, BMW and Renault-Nissan said that they do not use the "Defeat", while other companies had yet to respond, or simply that they comply with the law.
Driving a financial research firm Bernstein analysts agree that the standards are less stringent than in the US. But analysts said the report, which did not have "less of a need to cheat." So, other than the European Automobile Manufacturers' results are suspect, Bernstein says, "The consequences could be a change in the test cycle rather than the courts, and fines."
The VW Scandal has rocked the car world. Over the past decade and more, the car manufacturers are fortunate enough to have been cast into the production of diesel cars - with the support of many governments - believing that they are better for the environment. Recent scientific evidence shows that this is not so, and there are even moves to limit the diesel cars in some cities due in part to the VW emissions scandal. Diesel was sold already slowing down, so the VW scandal came at a bad time. "The revelations are likely to lead to a sharp fall in demand for diesel-powered cars," said Richard Gane, a car expert consultants studying the VW emissions scandal.
"In the US the diesel car market currently accounts for about 1% of the total sales of new cars, and this is likely to increase in the short to medium term." However, in Europe the impact could be much higher, which is why a large part of the market transition from gasoline cars practically overnight."
Volkswagen says the 11 million vehicles in the world are involved in a scandal erupted over the rigging of the US auto emissions tests. He said that it had set aside € 6.5 (£ 4.7 billion) to cover the expenses scandal. VW Scandal chief executive Martin Winterkorn expressed an apology from the fresh-rigging, saying that he was "infinitely sorry" for the "manipulation".
British car industry, the trade body SMMT, said: "The EU is acting in a totally different system in the United States VW Emissions scandal - all of the tests under strict conditions, as required by European Union law and witnessed by an independent government agency approval."
But it added: "The industry recognizes that the current test method is obsolete and is applying for approval of the European Commission of a new emissions test, which includes a new VW emissions testing technologies and do not reflect the best conditions on the roads."
Environmentalists have long argued that the emissions rules are not followed. "Diesel cars in Europe cooperate worse than the average of US technology," said Tom, the pressure group Transport & Environment. "Our latest report shows that nearly 90% of diesel-powered vehicles do not comply with the VW emissions limits if they are traveling on the road. We are talking about millions of vehicles."
