Volkswagen emissions scandal

California will receive $66 million from Volkswagen to help reduce air pollution.  Reporter Sally Schilling explains the funds are part of a second settlement reached yesterday (Wednesday) related to the company's emissions cheating scandal.

California air regulators are accusing another carmaker of building vehicles that pollute above legal limits, but not during emissions tests.  The state Air Resources Board and the U.S. EPA both cited Fiat-Chrysler yesterday (Thursday), as Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford report.

Volkswagon Settlement = $66 Million in California

Dec 21, 2016

Volkswagon has agreed to pay California $66 million for the remaining 15-thousand vehicles caught in the company's emission cheating scandal. Capital Public Radio's Amy Quinton explains.


Diesel Volkswagen owners across California will soon begin choosing whether to get rid of their cars, or bring them in for repairs.  A federal judge in San Francisco recently approved a nearly $15-billion settlement for the carmaker's emissions scandal.  Capital Public Radio's Daniel Potter reports on the decision now facing many thousands of VW diesel owners.

Volkswagen will spend more than $2 billion in California, under a settlement for selling cars that evade federal and state emissions tests.  Capital Public Radio Ben Bradford reports on the California portion of the deal announced yesterday (Tuesday).

California regulators say they've found another 16-hundred Volkswagen vehicles designed to evade emissions tests.  That's in addition to the half-million the company has already admitted selling in the U.S.  Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports.
