It seems like yesterday that news broke of the Volkswagen Group cheating its diesel emissions in both Europe and North America. However, it was actually almost six years ago, which is sort of making me feel old. Despite the six year gap in time, Dieselgate (as it’s known) doesn’t seem to want to go away. Former Audi CEO, who was CEO during Dieselgate, Rupert Stadler is currently undergoing trial in Germany and has made headlines recently for attempting to pin the blame on Audi engineers.
Back when this scandal first broke, several Volkswagen execs and engineers confessed to using a cheat device software to manipulate emissions testing machines for its diesel engines. However, Stadler and Audi engineers did not and now Stadler is claiming that he was unaware of such software and, when trying to get to the bottom of it, Audi engineers weren’t forthcoming with him.
