The other day I we reported that the Volkswagen Group was again in the crosshairs of the environmental authorities of the united States for having employed an unknown mechanism trap to manipulate the emissions of the other engines. In this case, the brand of the Volkswagen Group, targeted directly by the Air Resources Board California was Audi, and several of their models with mechanical diesel, petrol and automatic transmission.
In the wake of this accusation, the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag has reported that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the united States would have started to research Audi on the use that they could give to the device or software trap that has been found in the cars Audi sold in the united States. To do this it would already have advised the company that it will start this new research.

so soon what we know is that to day of today in the united States, there are two demand collective filed against Audi. In them would be collected, requests to investigate whether Audi had installed intentionally a device to turn on and off at your whim systems anti-pollution of their cars. In addition to also pursue that the brand resarza fairly with consumers who have relied on their technology and promises and now find themselves with a vehicle if things don’t go well they would have to stop using for failing to comply with the environmental laws.
Of this indictment true, the Volkswagen Group would have to face a new process by tricking the environmental authorities of the united States. In addition, we’re not just talking about a possible court case, but to see how the years have fought to improve its image in the demanding american market is going down the toilet.
