Washington, November 14 (RHC)-- Volkswagen’s emissions cheating scandal is widening. The company has now acknowledged it understated carbon dioxide emissions for about 800,000 vehicles sold in Europe.
The announcement comes after U.S. regulators accused Volkswagen of installing devices in diesel-powered vehicles to increase nitrogen oxide emissions up to nine times the allowable levels. Volkswagen has already recalled millions of cars across Europe.
In other news, Honda has cut ties with Japanese airbag maker Takata after U.S. regulators fined Takata $70 million. Takata airbag inflaters have been linked to at least eight deaths; the airbags have exploded, shooting out metal fragments.
