ABSTRACT

Volkswagen is one of the leading car manufacturers in the world. The company is known for producing reliable and economic reasonably priced vehicles. The German giant was caught in the middle of a huge scandal in the United States. It was discovered VW faked the performance of its diesel engines to meet EPA standards. The company’s response, that only a few engineers were to be blamed for such a colossal fraud was not met well by the public and industry experts. This led to what is now known as Dieselgate, one of the biggest scandals the company has ever experienced.
