Although the comparison with consumer protectors in the diesel model lawsuit has just burst, VW agrees to compensate the affected customers. In total, the company holds out the prospect of 830 million euros.
Wolfsburg (dpa) - Volkswagen wants to pay the complaining diesel customers a compensation despite the failed settlement procedure with consumer protection. The already negotiated 830 million euros are to be offered "without the support of the Federation of German Consumer Centers," the company said after an extraordinary board meeting.
Negotiations to settle compensation for hundreds of thousands of diesel customers have failed, Volkswagen said. As the group announced, the amount of the fee claims of the lawyers of the Federal Association of Consumer Centers (vzbv) should be the reason.
The vzbv represents numerous diesel drivers in the proceedings for the model declaratory action, who demand compensation for their vehicles with excessive emissions.
