French test confirmed only VW diesel cheated emissions compared to nine other car makers

French Environment Minister said today that a test was ordered on 10 different brands of diesel engines with the car samples selected randomly.
Aim was to compare lab tests with real driving conditions.
VW engines were 5 times the legal limits while for the other car makers it was between 1.5 and 2 times above the limit.
Twice the limit is the expected difference between a lab test and real life driving conditions.

In the meantime sale figures for Volkswagen felt 10% in the UK and 3% in France.
The impact on the VW badge does not concern the other important brands of the group such as Audi and Skoda
People are probably worried about their image at the wheel of a brand making the headlines...
But at least in the UK other brands experience sharp sales decline. So too early to tell...
