For vehicles to be road-legal in the UK, they must comply with legal emissions standards. However, the Volkswagen Group (which includes VW, Audi, Skoda and SEAT) breached these standards by fitting a defeat device into some of their diesel-engine vehicles. This device tricked the European Regulator’s testing systems into thinking that these vehicles complied with the required emissions standards when they did not.
People who bought affected vehicles were misled about their efficiency and environmental friendliness and have suffered losses as a result.
