    As the Diesel Emits: German Transport Office Says VW Appears To Be Only One To Manipulate Tests

    • More Heat Is Applied to Volkswagen In Light of the Diesel Scandal

    One of the big questions coming out of the Volkswagen Diesel scandal was whether or not other automakers also manipulated emission tests. The German transport office at the moment doesn't have any evidence that says so.


    "At this point we have no indication of other manufacturers being involved," a spokesman for the office said at a government news conference today.


    Not the news Volkswagen wanted to hear as the company is beginning to feel the heat from European countries.

    • France's prosecutors have opened a preliminary inquiry into suspected "aggravated deception" by the German automaker
    • Separately, French consumer protection and fraud control authorities have opened their own investigation into Volkswagen's cheat
    • Italy's antitrust body has opened an investigation into wrongdoing by Volkswagen
    • Switzerland's Federal Roads Office has banned selling and registering new Volkswagen diesel vehicles equipped with software to cheat emission test
