VW’s Bosses Are Coming To The US For The First Time Since The Emissions’ Scandal

The top executives of the second largest car maker in the world are coming to the US for the first time since the emissions scandal broke last September and after the civil lawsuit filed against VW by the US Justice Department.

VW brand boss Herbert Diess is scheduled to speak at CES on Wednesday and make an appearance at the Detroit Motor Show on Sunday. Matthias Mueller, VW’s CEO will also come to the US next week to meet politicians and possibly other officials according to Bloomberg.

The news broke after the civil lawsuit filed by the US Justice Department against Volkswagen AG for the installation of defeat devices on some of their diesel models to manipulate emissions tests. This lawsuit could lead to mammoth fines of up to $90 billion for the German company.

Volkswagen also has to find a solution with the Environmental Protection Agency about how to deal with the sold cars fitted with the defeat devices.

Although Volkswagen has made some progress in dealing with the scandal in Europe, things are still pretty much unresolved in the US. Europe’s regulators approved the low-cost fixes for 8.5 million engines involved in the scandal -out of the 11 million sold worldwide- with the repairs due to start this month.

Experts are saying though that VW will have to spend way more money in the US in order to correct their mistakes.
