Volkswagen scandal under investigation by European parliament

By ,

As you know, the emissions scandal at Volkswagen has been the talk of the auto industry the entire fall. Many investigations were launched, and now the European Parliament has voted to conduct one of its own, according to Reuters

The parliamentary inquiry could last for up to a year and will look into “alleged contraventions of European Union law and maladministration in its application. It will also attempt to determine whether regulators at the European Commission failed to prevent cheating by the car industry in vehicle pollution tests.

Volkswagen admitted in September that it rigged U.S. tests for nitrogen oxide emissions from diesel cars. Roughly 11 million vehicles worldwide were fitted with illegal "defeat devices."
