Audi accepts 800-million-euro fine over emissions cheating

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Munich (dpa) - German prosecutors have announced a fine against carmaker Audi for cheating on emissions tests to the tune of 800 million euros (926 million dollars).

The Munich prosecutor‘s office said in a statement released Tuesday that the fine has been imposed due to "deviations from regulatory requirements in certain V6 and V8 diesel aggregates and diesel vehicles." It added that Audi had accepted the fine.

Shortly after the announcement, Audi said the fine would affect its 2018 financial results.

"Taking into consideration the extraordinary effects of the fine, the Audi Group will significantly underperform ... on its forecast for 2018 financial results," the carmaker said in a statement.
