THURSDAY, Oct. 29, 2015 (HealthDay News) The Volkswagen emissions scandal will directly cause 60 premature deaths in the United States and hundreds of millions of dollars in health care expenses and other costs, U.S. researchers claim. October 29, 2015 11:36 AM EDT P ollution from vehicles at the center of Volkswagen’s ongoing emissions scandal may have contributed to 60 premature deaths in the United States, according to new.

According to Car and Driver, Volkswagen owns 70% of the U.S. passenger-car diesel market and has promoted “Clean Diesel” as an environmentally friendly alternative to options like electric and hybrid vehicles, but now the company is experiencing a scandal involving alleged cheating on diesel emissions. Volkswagen suspended the sale of 4,000 vehicles in the UK as the emissions scandal continues to hit. The company said the vehicles may be equipped with the device that cheated emissions tests in.

Former VW boss Winterkorn must stand trial in diesel scandal Former Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn must face a public trial on fraud charges over the company’s diesel emissions scandal. FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Former Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn must face a public trial on fraud charges over the company’s diesel emissions scandal from 2015. That was the ruling Wednesday from the court in Braunschweig, Germany.

Winterkorn was CEO of the automaker during the years when it equipped diesel cars with software that helped them. The Volkswagen emissions scandal, also known as Dieselgate or Emissionsgate, began in September 2015, when the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a notice of violation of the Clean Air Act to German automaker Volkswagen Group.The agency had found that Volkswagen had intentionally programmed turbocharged direct injection (TDI) diesel engines to activate their emissions.

As a result, the impact on VW’s brand and reputation were unprecedented and evidence of this is further borne out by social media advocacy volumes following the emissions scandal.

Despite all the models having passed lab-based emissions tests, the VWs tested gave some unusual results, appearing to emit dangerous levels of toxins, some at 35 times the legal limit.

The VW scandal has increased scrutiny on combustion engines in general, and VW and several other car makes have been shown to pollute more than allowed.

VW emissions scandal About 11 million Volkswagen (VW) and VW-manufactured cars with diesel engines have been fitted with a ‘defeat device’ that detects when the car’s emissions performance is being tested and ‘cheats’ by changing the performance to improve results.

After the scandal was uncovered, tests showed that VW models contravene the emissions regulations by as much as 40 times permitted levels; results confirmed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

In September 2015 VW cars admitted illicitly installing software in 11 million car engines over several years that allowed the cars to pass regulators’ laboratory emissions tests, but belched out toxic nitrogen oxides when travelling normally on the road.

  • So you go out and buy an electric car,its green right,so does the government let you off the taxes that involved with buying a green vehicle? I don’t think so!

  • Os Norte Americanos nunca aceitaram a hegemonia Volkswagen que superou a Ford. O único jeito de tentar quebrar a principal concorrente foi um escândalo. Porra estão preocuoados com emissão de CO2 usem alcool ou carros elétricos. Que fanfarronagem

  • Every manufacturer cheats on emissions. Real world dynamic load conditions, o2 mixture in air, fuel quality, elevation all effect fuel consumption and emissions. Dyno test isn’t realistic

  • BMW managed to make their USA specification diesel cars compliant to the EPA standards without cheating, so it proves it is not impossible, it is a matter of building the cars with a properly engineered exhaust gas treatment system, VW chose to not to comply, equipping their cars with cut-price dysfunctional exhaust gas treatment systems VW cheated upon their competitors, the EPA, the consumer, and the American public in the goal of securing an advantage over those car makers who sought to do the right thing

  • I used get migraines every 3 days until found out what was causing it replaced my cat with better one then add parts that reduced emissions
    I was yards away from plant in Tennessee and started getting migraines instantly so I knew they had problem with emissions
    I heard altruism is cause by noxs have no proof but from my experience get rid of it period and stop attack on carbon

  • I can’t understand why the EPA and other agencies are so heavily regulating NOX emissions. NOX doesn’t even contribute to global warming from what I understand. Let alone burning more fuel to decrease NOX increases CO2 output. I just can’t see the reasoning for all of it.

  • what VW does is they set speed limiter on your TDI’s!!! my car going 60mph sounds as if it was in 5k RPM lol 2015 Passat with hardly any miles lol already twice I had them replace my timing belt! beware DO NOT GET THE FIX once my warranty will be done basically ill be screwed

  • The Volkswagen was just a pure american scam like the bankrupcy in 2008, when the USA was interested in protecting the environement? Another proof that this was another american scam, 2 months later they said «ah, we think that Mercedes is doing the same» yeah right my ass. Look how many diesel trucks are roling in the US with a big think black smoke. Another thing, why the scandal was only present in the US, there is no scandal in Canada and no scandal in the rest of the world. So please stop trying to provoking some plan some scams like that to steal money from other companies. Thats what happens when your anti-polution norms are so low for 1 st world country.

  • VW rigged some emission tests with cars, that are no longer being sold. Other manufacturer made cars, which are completely unreliable and a nightmare to own, but are no longer being sold. Like for instance most french or Italian cars from the last several decades.

    So which is worse? You decide. Also the “illegal” diesel cars from the VW group pollute no more than diesel cars from all the other manufacturers from the same period. The only difference is, they use legal methods to fulfill the test requirements, while there cars still pollute just as much as the cars from the VW group in the real world.

    So if you are actually concerned with the environment and health issues, you cant buy any diesel car, which does not use the Ad Blue technology. Because that is the only technology, which effectively reduce NOX emissions in the real world and not just in a completely irrelevant laboratory test.

    All diesels from the PSA group use Ad Blue technology now, and also most of the diesel engines in the VW Passat and Skoda Suberb. So these are actually some of the only clear diesel cars, you can buy today. To buy something much more polluting, because VW used illegal methods to cheat, while others used legal methods to cheat, seems rather irrational to me.

  • They will recover. Porsche, SEAT, Audi, Skoda, MAN, Scania, Lambo, Bentley, Bugatti, Ducati and VW brand of course are all under the VW group. Sales 10.14 million in 2014. Get rid of half of these brands…. I think they’ll survive!

    What we need to ask is how these tests were run. Nobody seems to give a comprehensive technical explanation. Some of us would like to find out why there is more NOx when driving and why not when being tested.

     How does a car know it is being tested? If you test a vehicle with 2 wheels stationary, are you really testing it properly? Does turning ESP and other features off really test it the right way? Are the tests faulty? Need more technical information on how this is done.

  • Most people who’ll complain are soccer moms in their big SUVs which hasn’t seen a stretch of off road since Saab made only airplanes and land rovers were climbing dams.

  • The real reason was that germans allowed themselves to ask about theirs GOLD stored in the US. The faulty software was set by the CIA agents. By the way, Verge is dead.
