VW gets 10 days to sort out its claim

EUROPEAN Union regulators have given Volkswagen 10 days to clarify its own admission that nearly a million of the company’s cars emit more CO2 pollution than originally claimed, the European Commission said yesterday.

In a letter sent to the company, European Energy Commissioner Miguel Arias Canete asks VW CEO Matthias Mueller to clearly specify which cars were affected by the “irregularities.”

“I can confirm that a letter from Canete was sent to the CEO of Volkswagen yesterday,” commission spokeswoman Anna-Kaisa Itkonen said. “The letter asks for some clarifications from Volkswagen, (and) asks which models of cars are affected by the irregularities that Volkswagen reported November 3 as well as how many vehicles affected.”

VW said its staff would decide on its response “after an internal deliberation.”
