Click on the link to listen to John Batchelor, the host of The John Batchelor radio show, talk to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, Driving the Nation, about the video interview with California Air Resources Board (CARB’s) Dave Clegern.
In 1967, California’s Governor Reagon established the California Air Resources Board (CARB) because of the pollutants in the air in California. It was the first emissions standard in the Nation and is the stalwart of the Nation for emissions.
Trouble in Volkswagen group; California Air Resources Board (CARB) says they will be investigating all Volkswagen groups, VW, Audi, and Porsche.
If you are a car company you have to sell cars in California if you want to gain market share. Volkswagen knew this and increased its market share by intentionally deceiving CARB into letting them sell diesel vehicles in California.
Was it a condition going forward of selling cars in California that Volkswagen’s executives apologize profusely and admit it was done intentionally?
How did CARB’s engineers figure out that this defeat device was done intentionally?
Is it about miles per gallon or emissions? When the fix comes out will it change the fuel economy?
What difference do the emission regulations make? What effect does NOX have in California?
Are Californians allowed to register their cars in California?
Are there any other car companies suspected?
Did the lack of Volkswagen sales in early years prompt this cheating for more market share?
