EPA Rejects VW’s Proposed Diesel Fix

The EPA and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) have rejected Volkswagen’s plan to fix the 500,000 diesel vehicles that contain defeat devices. They also don’t buy that VW didn’t lie, like the CEO insists.

“They [Volkswagen] continued and compounded the lie and when they were caught they tried to deny it. The result is thousands of tons of nitrogen oxide that have harmed the health of Californians. They need to make it right. Today’s action is a step in the direction of assuring that will happen.” - CARB
