Audi’s Diesel Crisis Isn’t Over, CEO Says

Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler has admitted that the German automaker’s diesel crisis is still ongoing.

During a recent interview with Germany’s Augsburger Allgemeine newspaper, Stadler said Audi continues to uncover diesel models which don’t comply with regulations. Last month, Audi found another 60,000 cars which it needs to fix.

“We are still running into issues that we report immediately to regulators. The diesel crisis hasn’t yet ended,” Stadler said to Reuters.

Audi is still in recovery mode

While many top executives from the Volkswagen Group have lost their jobs in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal, Stadler says he intends on staying at the helm of Audi and leading the brand into the future.

“I feel responsibility, and as long as I have the full support of the supervisory board and management, I accept this responsibility to solve the problem and lead the company into the future,” he said.

Since the dieselgate scandal first broke in September 2015, Audi and its fellow VW Group companies have been forced to recall millions of vehicles worldwide. During recent investigations, a number of Porsche and Audi facilities were raided by German prosecutors in search of unspecified documents which may shed further light on Audi’s involvement with the cheating.
