‘Absurd that Volkswagen goes scot-free’
It is absurd that nothing is done in the Netherlands about Volkswagen. Their fraud with emissions testing is one of the biggest scandals in the car industry ever. Millions of customers have been lied to and the extra emissions cost lives, but regulators and the government just let it happen.
So says the Consumers Association one year after the Volkswagen scandal came to light. “Customers are tricked,” says director Bart Combée of the Association. “Theis is what jurists call ‘unfair commercial practice’. But the Authority for Consumer & Market (ACM) does not even investigate. Incomprehensible.”
The Consumers Association will now submit an enforcement request to the ACM. …
Under pressure from the US American environmental authority EPA Volkswagen confessed last September that they committed fraud with the emission of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions of diesel cars. Fraudulent software ensures that the car during an emission test does not exceed the maximum allowable emissions of NOx. But on the road the car emits five times as much. That happens in about 11 million cars worldwide. …
Volkswagen was keen to reach a settlement quickly in the USA, because they expected to still come off much worse in a lawsuit. …
In the Netherlands there are 160,000 Volkswagen fraudulent diesel cars.
