reached an agreement in one of the largest class-action settlements the United States has actually ever seen. The significant $14.7 billion sum is the result of the producer settling with clients affected by its diesel emissions cheating scandal & #x 2014; which showed Volkswagen deliberately equipped approximately 475,000 diesel cars with software application that bluffed emissions regulations for years, and triggered almost 1 million lots of extra contamination. The estimated $14.7 billion will be utilized to redeem cars from owners (at pre-scandal value), provide payment to consumers who decide to have their faulty cars repaired, and supply extra funding to environmental cleanup and promo of zero-emission cars. The 475,000 2-liter diesel cars that are influenced are the Jetta (2009 & #x 2013; 2015), Beetle (2012 & #x 2013; 2015), Passat (2012 & #x 2013; 2013), Audi A3 (2010 & #x 2013; 2015), Jetta SportWagen (2009 & #x 2013; 2014), Golf (2010 & #x 2013; 2015), Golf SportWagen (2015), and Touareg (2009 & #x 2013; 2016).
