Volkswagen apologises for covering up emissions

Volkswagen's Chief Executive has officially apologised after it was found out that some of the brand's cars had disguised pollution levels.

Martin Winterkorn, CEO of WV, has stated "The Board of Management at Volkswagen AG takes these findings very seriously. I personally am deeply sorry that we have broken the trust of our customers and the public." VW has issued an internal investigation, but there has been no confirmation on who is actually conducting it. 

The car manufacturer has had to recall half a million cars on Friday and could be facing both fines that could result in potentially $18 billion, and criminal charges for the WV executives. 

The 'defeat device' found in the WV cars allows the cars to emit less emission during tests than it actually would when driving normally. 

The scandal may mean Winterkorn's exit from the company as this has posed as a grave problem for WV.
