The justice department in Germany this morning intervened with Audi in the investigation into the diesel scandal. The head office of the car manufacturer in Ingolstadt and a factory in Neckarsulm are being searched. There was also a raid on a house in Baden-Württemberg.
The investigation by the justice department focuses on manipulation by Audi of the exhaust emissions of the V6-3-liter engines of the manufacturer, intended for the European market. The raids were at 7 a.m. this morning. …
210,000 diesel cars
Last Wednesday, the justice department raided the homes of six Audi engineers. The investigation now is said to focus on 14 people at Audi.
Investigative journalists from the Süddeutsche Zeitung, NDR and WDR reported earlier that from 2009 onwards, Audi has sold at least 210,000 diesel cars with fraudulent software in the US and Europe.
Last year there were also raids at Audi. Then justice investigated manipulation of the emission values of 80,000 vehicles for the American market.
Audi previously admitted that it had messed with the so-called TDi engines. In August, half of the management was replaced. Audi is owned by the Volkswagen group, where the diesel scandal has its origin.
