Now we’ve heard it all. Just when we thought Volkswagen’s outrageous cheating scandal couldn’t run any deeper, Bloomberg has trotted out a report informing us all exactly how wrong we were.
While initial reports had the orders which lead to false emissions test results originating with the company’s American branch, they may in fact have come down from the mothership in Germany!
It is telling that the report states that when a vehicle would initially fail an inspection, VW would fly engineers over from Germany to inspect and adjust the vehicle — which, of course, didn’t change a thing, for years. It just keeps getting more interesting!
