CEO of Audi Ar­rested

Diesel World - - News -

Once again, the plot within the VW Diesel­gate scan­dal thick­ens. On June 18, Audi Chief

Ex­ec­u­tive Ru­pert Stadler was ar­rested in Mu­nich,

Ger­many. Prose­cu­tors and at least one judge feared that Stadler might ob­struct the on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the diesel emis­sions cheat­ing scan­dal that broke in 2015. The ar­rest comes after Audi’s ad­mis­sion last month that an ad­di­tional 60,000 A6 and A7 diesel mod­els were found to have soft­ware is­sues that im­pacted their emis­sions. Stadler is a key fig­ure in VW’S new lead­er­ship struc­ture, which has been rapidly tran­si­tion­ing to­ward elec­tric ve­hi­cles.
