Police raid VW headquarters as probe mounts in Germany, US

Volkswagen has sunk into the deepest crisis of its history after revealing it equipped 11 million of its diesel vehicles worldwide with software that switches the engine to a low-emissions mode during testsPrivate apartments were also raided in Volkswagen’s hometown of Wolfsburg and other cities, prosecutors told AFP, as police sought to secure documents and digital data that could point to those responsible for the deception of global proportions. The raids came as Volkswagen’s US chief Michael Horn faced a grilling before Congress, where he sought to distance himself from the scandal while blaming it on engineers in Germany. Horn told a committee that he had learned in early 2014 that the group’s ostensibly environmentally friendly diesel cars breached pollution rules.
