VW to name people responsible for emissions scandal
Two of VW highest-ranking engineers and its American head will reportedly be forced to quit.
HAMBURG/BERLIN - Volkswagen (VW) will start naming people responsible for manipulations of emissions tests on Friday, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.
The carmaker's supervisory board will not only announce the successor to Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn at a meeting on Friday but also start revealing names of people bearing responsibility for technical manipulations of emissions testing, the sources said on Thursday.
CEO Winterkorn resigned on Wednesday, succumbing to pressure for change at the German carmaker, which is reeling from the admission that it deceived US regulators about how much its diesel cars pollute.
Meanwhile, two of VW highest-ranking engineers and its American head will reportedly be forced to quit as the carmaker tries to deal decisively with its diesel emissions scandal.
Audi's research and development boss and Porsche's engineering chief are widely expected to be dismissed at a meeting tomorrow.
The company's top manager in the US is also expected to go.
VW, Audi and Porsche have all declined to comment on the information.
