The impact of the VW diesel scandal differs from country to country

Although there are no official numbers at this time, it seems that new car buyers in Germany are ordering even more VW diesel vehicles than before the scandal with manipulated test-software became public. Die Welt and Sueddeutsche Zeitung quote well informed VW sources saying that the scandal didn’t show effects in lower sales numbers. Not in Germany at least, but numbers differ from country to country.

Orders of diesel-powered new VW cars in the United Kingdom have shown a notable drop. In this case the company sees this as a consequence of the scandal. Overall the scandal doesn’t seem to have an effect on sales numbers.

VW haven’t yet officially decided on whether to recall the 8.5 million affected vehicles in Europe, offer incentives for dealers to take the cars back, or to combine more different measures. Worldwide over 11 million vehicles of the companies various brands (VW, Audi, Seat, Skoda) are affected. According to insider sources, VW would have to come up with up to 10,000 different solutions to repair all cars. This huge number is due to different engine types, different gear numbers, brands, etc.
