Volkswagen boss quits over diesel emissions scandal

Volkswagen

VW+CEO

BY ANDREAS CREMER

Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn resigned on Wednesday, succumbing to pressure for change at the German carmaker, which is reeling from the admission that it deceived U.S. regulators about how much its diesel cars pollute.

“Volkswagen needs a fresh start – also in terms of personnel. I am clearing the way for this fresh start with my resignation,” Winterkorn said, following a marathon meeting with the executive committee of the VW board.

The world’s biggest carmaker by sales has admitted to U.S. regulators that it programmed its cars to detect when they were being tested and alter the running of their diesel engines to conceal their true emissions.

Volkswagen did not name a successor, but said proposals on management appointments would be made to a full board meeting on Friday.
