“is Currently reviewing the Volkswagen group a temporary nationwide offer the exchange bonus, which is granted in the case of an exchange of a Euro-4 or Euro – 5 Diesel vehicle,” said a company spokesman on Friday. This is limited, currently on the 15 most polluted cities. Previously, the “had reports” of the project.

“The competent Executive bodies are expected to meet at the beginning of the next week’s decisions,” the spokesman said. “The biggest German car company is the first provider that makes all diesel owners in Germany, a really good exchange offer for cleaner cars,” said Federal transport Minister, Andreas Scheuer (CSU) of the sheet. At the same time the Minister tried to increase the pressure on the competition. “I hope that the other car manufacturers provide such good News in the sense of their customers,” said Scheuer.

Such prospects to industry expert Ferdinand dudenhöffer considers to be unrealistic. “The hope of the Minister that further bans could be avoided, misses the reality,” said the Director of the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. “The manufacturers work oriented all the profit and do what you think is right, not what wants to be a Minister of transport.” That Volkswagen is going ahead with the premiums now lies in the fact that the diesel scandal, and the problems in the transition to the new emissions test procedure WLTP would be thrown back to the company.
