Diesel Emission Scandal

On September 24, 2019, Herbert Diess, the current CEO of the Volkswagen Group, and Hans Dieter Pötsch, the director of Volkswagen’s administrative leading body, were charged with controlling the company’s diesel emissions. Chiefs were accused of hiding information from investors regarding the significant financial repercussions due to the anger, which received a lot of public attention. German law mandates that top executives inform investors of important financial risks and difficulties.

This comes in second place behind the investigation’s conclusion that Volkswagen intentionally rigged emissions testing on a sizable number of diesel vehicles, costing the company more than $30 billion. Because of the false information, the stocks fell by about 40%. However, Volkswagen defended themselves, saying: “The company has carefully investigated this case with the support of internal and external legal experts for nearly four years… the result is clear: the charges are baseless.


Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen, is stepping down, the automaker announced today, marking a momentous transition in leadership of perhaps Germany’s most well-known international business. On September 1, the plan is successful, and Oliver Blume will win. Throughout his four-year tenure as CEO, Mr. Diess’ future at Volkswagen has been in doubt on a number of occasions, most recently in the fall of last year due to disagreements with the organization’s powerful works gathering concerning his zap system and the board style.

His departure comes as the company works to surpass Tesla in being the top producer of electric vehicles, catch up with programming, and carry out an IPO for its Porsche sports car brand. Before announcing his flight, Diess wrote on LinkedIn that “a big number of us are awaiting an earned summer holiday” following a “really distressing first 50% of 2022.” “My emphasis will be on the clients, brands, and things,” Blume declared in a declaration.
