I feel that the VW emissions scandal will one of the turning points in automotive history........... Even with legal software none of those diesels will actually comply so..?? What are the implications for companies/people who have claimed tax breaks because of 'low emissions'? Will they have to repay tax..? Where does this leave pollution legislation? Will they have to 'water it down' to 'allow' diesels to remain on the roads? Have other manufacturers done the same? With all the amount of research work that has gone into diesels over the years, presumably diesels CAN'T comply. The amounts of money in fines; legal action; up-grades etc etc will be enormous. So it is down to petrol vs EV/Fuel-cell. Petrol pollution was part of the cause for the push for diesels so now..? Also I understand that one of the issues is that refining oil produces an amount of diesel that needs to be used so if diesel cars disappear, who is going to use all the diesel produced? This is enormous for the oil companies too. And the EV ship sails on unaffected and just laughing from the sidelines.
