WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Volkswagen AG (OTC) said on Monday it had agreed to pay মিল 1.5 million to settle environmental claims with New Hampshire and Montana over vehicle updates following the release of the software in the wake of the 2015 diesel fraud scandal.
Settlements for about ০ 200 per car are a small part of the German carmaker’s maximum liability to face whether states can enforce emissions laws on emissions updates after car sales.
VW will give New Hampshire ড 1.15 million and it has promised to build another high-speed charging station in the state by 20224.
VW last month asked the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse an Ohio court ruling that cleared the way for the state to move forward with its diesel emissions case.
In court documents, VW said Ohio’s claims “could total প্রতিদিন 350 million a day for many years, or more than 7 127 billion a year.” Equivalent to $ 280 per vehicle per population with two states and about 5,500 vehicles covered.
The lawsuit filed by the remaining three states and two counties involved about 47,000 vehicles.
Volkswagen (DE 🙂 had previously disposed of U.S. actions due to the স 20 billion mission migration scandal, but it did not escape the liability of local and state governments, the appellate court found.
