Unsealed papers in VW scandal reveal panic among engineers
As California regulators pursued Volkswagen to get to the bottom of its emissions scandal in the spring and summer of 2015, engineers at the carmaker who knew about the cheating were in a state of panic.
A US legal filing unsealed on Friday shows a group of VW employees attempting to cover up the cheating as questions from the California Air Resources Board became more and more detailed.
On April 28 2015, an unnamed VW employee wrote: “We only just need a plausible explanation as to why the emissions are still high!!!”
On May 12, one employee wrote about the emissions discrepancies between test conditions and real-world conditions: “We need a story for the situation!"
The emails are quoted in an indictment, dated June 1, against James Liang, 62, a veteran Volkswagen engineer who spent 30 years with the company. On Friday he pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to defraud US customers and regulators.
London mayor Sadiq Khan issues £2.5m VW congestion charge call
The mayor of London has claimed Volkswagen should pay £2.5m for missed congestion charge payments following the emissions-rigging scandal.
Sadiq Khan said 80,000 VW engines fitted with "defeat devices" were registered in London.
The devices, which detect when an engine is being tested, changed performance to improve results.
VW, the biggest carmaker in the world, admitted about 11 million cars worldwide were fitted with the device.
Transport for London calculated the £2.5m figure from the number of owners of affected VW vehicles claiming a discount for which they were not entitled.
"If you don't ask you don't get. I'm a champion for clean air, I'm a champion for London," said Mr Khan.
"Londoners, in good faith, bought these vehicles. They weren't clean. We've lost revenues from the congestion charge, they've got a case to answer."
The cars affected include Audi A1 and A3, Skoda Fabia and Octavia, Seat Ibiza and Leon and VW's Golf and Polo vehicles.
In a statement to the Sunday Times, VW said: "Volkswagen products perform well in independent real-world emissions testing against new cars in general.
"It is therefore difficult to understand why our products might be singled out for pollution penalties."
The scandal was exposed last September when America's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found many VW cars with diesel engines being sold in the States had software that could detect when they were being tested, changing the performance accordingly to improve results.
The German car giant has since admitted cheating emissions tests in the US.
