Volkswagen Gets Hit With A $2.8 Billion Criminal Fine
So last month, Volkswagen plead guilty in the diesel emissions scandal and on Friday, a U.S. judge ordered them to pay a $2.8 billion dollar criminal fine as part of a deal with the Department of Justice, according to Jalopnik. The repercussions from the diesel scandal just keep happening for Volkswagen.
A class action lawsuit has already forced the company to spend almost $15 billion on buybacks and environmental remediation. This scandal still continues to make the news and that’s not good for Volkswagen. What do you think about this? Do you think Volkswagen will ever be able to recover from diesel gate?
