It was the electrification moon for the German automobile industry. Mercedes-Benz introduced the first fully electric SUV. BMW explained the outline of the future EV strategy by announcing the concept car. And Audi is going to go to electricity. On Monday, the company celebrated the first day of the first complete battery-powered car E-tron. Considering what happened three years ago, there was no particular night in Audi's departure from San Francisco.
As a member of the Volkswagen Group, Audi played a central role in the development and installation of illegal software in 11 million diesel cars to deceive the emissions tests. On September 18, 2015, the US Environmental Protection Agency informed the public about VW and Audi's violation of the Clean Air Act and caused government agencies around the world to begin the investigation. Diesel Gate has become the biggest scandal to shake the automobile industry for decades. The Volkswagen Group had to settle a suit of about $ 30 billion in three years. The total is expected to increase by several billion dollars.
Although they focus on commitment to electric cars, German carmakers are still trying to curb the decline in diesel gates. The leader is held in prison. Investors will appeal billions of dollars. The European Commission collaborates with VW, Daimler, BMW and investigates. A pleasant relationship with the Angela Merkel regime has collapsed seriously.
Guy, who did not attend the exit of Audi on Monday? It was Audi's Chief Executive Rupert Stadler. A few hours before the party began, the Board of Directors of Volkswagen met at Wolfsburg in Germany and discussed the future of Stadler. He has to remove it from next week. After all, he has been detained in Bavarian prison for three months and he can not run an automobile company in that country. Not only is he suspected of making false statements to the authorities …

Did you think that the diesel gate was over? It's not.
