Another Ex-VW Exec Arrested In Germany Over Emissions

Audi Electric Cars To Be Built Around The World

Former VW engine chief arrested in diesel investigation, report says

It will be recorded as a negative special item in third-quarter results.

The company has been under a cloud since 2015 over its equipping of diesel cars with illegal software that enabled cheating on USA emissions tests.

With the additional charges, the German auto maker has increased its provisions to cover the costs of the diesel scandal to EUR25.1 billion, ($29.67 billion) from EUR22.6 billion previously.

Separately Munich prosecutors made an arrest in connection with the scandal.

German police arrested and detained a man Thursday who had previously been one of Volkswagen Group's highest-ranking engineers, over his role in the company's diesel emissions scandal.

German media named the arrested suspect as Wolfgang Hatz, who stepped down from his post on Porsche's management board previous year after being suspended over the Dieselgate investigation.

IFAB to lift poppy ban after Federation Internationale de Football Association revises provisions over shirt use
The English and Scottish FAs appealed against fines totalling £51,000 for displaying the poppy when the sides faced each other. The players wore the poppy on a black armband during a World Cup qualifier match at Wembley last November.

Hatz was head of engine development at Audi from 2001 to 2007, before moving on to lead powertrain development at the VW group and then becoming research and development chief at Porsche, another VW subsidiary. It's unclear if or what he might be charged with, but his arrest seems to be related to ongoing investigations of emission cheating at Audi - another automaker under VW's umbrella that is facing Dieselgate fallout.

In the United States, where the diesel test-cheating scandal originated, the carmaker must also provide hardware fixes and in some cases buy back cars.

Porsche SE, which owns a 30.8 per cent stake in Volkswagen, said the new provisions would also affect its results, but stuck to a wide range for its expected 2017 post-tax profit of between 2.1 and 3.1 billion euros. The money will be put towards plans to buy back or fix 500,000 tainted USA diesel cars after the company reached a settlement with US authorities totaling to more than 5,000 euros per vehicle.
