NEWS: Volkswagen emission scandal widens: 11 million cars affected; EMISSIONS
USA Today @ September 22, 2015

SEPT 2015 -- Volkswagen's emissions scandal ballooned Tuesday as the automaker said it affects 11 million vehicles worldwide and will require the company to set aside 6.5 billion euro ($7.3 billion).

The startling admission instantly makes the crisis one of the most expensive automotive scandals in recent memory.

The crisis also threatens to upend the company on its rapid path to becoming the world’s largest automaker. Volkswagen had seized the title from Toyota for the first six months of 2015.

"This could damage the Volkswagen brand globally for years to come," said former automotive marketing executive Peter De Lorenzo, blogger at Autoextremist.com, in an interview. "Trust and belief in the brand has been broken."

The crisis began Friday when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency accused Volkswagen of installing sophisticated software on nearly 500,000 U.S. vehicles to manipulate emissions tests.

The technology tricks regulators into believing that 4-cylinder diesel vehicles comply with emissions standards, but the cars are actually admitting harmful pollutants at rates of up to 40 times acceptable standards. Volkswagen quickly halted sales of the cars after the allegations surfaced.

The U.S. Justice Department has opened a criminal probe into the automaker's actions. The EPA's own investigation is ongoing, and foreign regulators are expected to launch their own probes.

"Volkswagen is working at full speed to clarify irregularities concerning a particular software used in diesel engines," the company said Tuesday in a statement.

The "discrepancies" affect vehicles with what it called "Type EA 189 engines," causing "a notable deviation between bench test results and actual road use."

In the U.S., the EPA could fine Volkswagen up to $37,500 per car, which would equal a maximum fine of some $18 billion.

The scandal raises serious questions about whether high-level executives knew about the software, which had been installed on some nameplates for at least six consecutive model years.

The EPA has said the company admitted to installing the software. The agency said the software affected the four-cylinder diesel versions of the 2009 to 2015 Jetta, Beetle, Golf, the 2014 and 2015 Passat and the 2009 to 2015 Audi A3.

The episode is likely to trigger a recall and a flurry of consumer lawsuits. It may prompt the company to compensate individual car owners or other measures.
