The Italian consumer organisation Altroconsumo’s fight against Dieselgate doesn’t stop.
The Italian court in Venice will hear the class action suit filed by Altroconsumo for all Volkswagen brands including Audi, Skoda and Seat.
Only in Europe, 8.5 million motorists have been affected by the Volkswagen scandal: they have bought a car that emits more NOx - poisonous, highly reactive gases – than what specified in the certificate of conformity and the sales contract.
On 29 May, ministers will discuss new car approval rules to improve control of emissions tests. According to The European Consumer Organisation (BEUC), the ongoing emissions scandal has highlighted numerous weaknesses in the European type approval and market surveillance regime. Therefore, BEUC calls for the European Council to give a clear signal that restoring consumer confidence is its primary aim.
