1. News is tricking out that real world tests of emissions vs. lab tests of Volkswagen diesel cars sold in Europe have ALSO been a mystery to many researchers in Europe. It is reported that about half of all car sales in Europe is diesel ! 2. Have other car manufacturers used other similar or equivalent measures to boost their emissions testing scores in the lab in Euope, and/or EPA testing in the USA , which is not matched by real world driving conditions ? How did all this happen over the past several years ? This could not have been a complete secret within Volkswagen for the CEO to admit to it so quickly!! Were other car manufacturers aware ? After all employees at senior levels do move around.... Why are other car manufacturers being silent ? The NEWS CYCLE on this big story is just beginning and will probably have a life of at least 6-12 months! More researchers and law firms will now be doing more such tests and looking for software tweaks and software based cheating on ALL other manufacturers both in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Maybe China too , given the extremely poor air quality in cities like Beijing ? Law suits and fines will mushroom .....other manufacturers will be forced to say, on the record, whether or not they did anything similar.... This could potentially boost all EV sales in developed countries, incrementally, in the next 12-18 months.
