The Volkswagen Group has established a November 30 deadline for all those inside the company that can shed more light about the issues that have caused all emissions-related scandals.
Today we bring another episode of the Dieselgate saga as VAG has informed its employees to come clean - pun intended - regarding the diesel shenanigans until the end of the month and those who spill the beans will be exempt from dismissal and any damage claims. This is the promise made by Volkswagen brand chief Herbert Diess in a letter sent to the company’s staff yesterday.
Reuters has seen this document and at one point Diess said “we are counting on your cooperation and knowledge as our company's employees to get to the bottom of the diesel and CO2 issue”, adding that “in this process, every single day counts.”
As most of you know, the Dieselgate debacle is now a two-part story as aside from those 11 million cars equipped with defeat devices, Volkswagen recently admitted there are 800,000 cars with “irregularities” concerning the CO2 emissions in Europe and have already promised to pay the tax differences the owners will likely be incurred. As for United States, owners of affected TDI cars are about to receive a Goodwill package encompassing a $500 prepaid Visa gift card, $500 Volkswagen Dealership gift card along with three years of free 24-hour roadside assistance.
