VW to present US with emission fixes today

VOLKSWAGEN, tainted by an emissions scandal, said it will present US authorities today with plans for bringing its vehicles outfitted with pollution-cheating software into compliance with regulations.

“We’re hopeful we’ll be able to announce something soon about the remedies we have identified and which we’ll be discussing with the agencies in the coming days,” Michael Horn, president and chief executive of Volkswagen Group of America, said at a Los Angeles auto show.

The event marked the group’s first auto show in North America since the Volkswagen scandal broke in September.

The automaker is struggling to cope with the biggest crisis of its history following its admission that it had fitted 11 million vehicles with devices designed to cheat pollution tests.

“We are discussing with the agencies on Friday all the remedies and afterwards there will be a communication,” Horn said.

“We’re cooperating fully with the regulators,” he added.
