The US-American authorities Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) have investigated cars from Volkswagen AG and found that, among others, certain US emission standards have been violated. Emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in engines of certain Volkswagen cars have been found to exceed EPA standards by a factor of up to 40. Volkswagen meanwhile acknowledged having installed so-called defeat devices in 11m diesel vehicles. These defeat devices served to reduce the effectiveness of the US authorities’ emission control systems under testing conditions.
