#NAIAS2017 VW scrum after Tiguan Atlas R-Line

VW diesel was the subject of the scrum. Dr. Herbert Diess, Member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, Chairman of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, talked to journalists after the unveiling of the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Atlas R-Line.

Diess was asked about the VW employees going to jail, and whether Volkswagen executives were afraid to come to the United States in fear that they would be arrested and jailed.

Currently, Schmidt and Liang are working with the FBI in what looks like willful collusion, and acknowledgment of wrongdoing from a slide show that was presented to CARB in 2015. Full Schmidt-complaint (page 14-15)

How is the resolution of dieselgate coming?

Is Volkswagen considering bringing production from Mexico to the United States of America?
